Methodist Gets Past Lady Bobcats

Playing their second game in as many days, the Lees-McRae Lady Bobcats fell 13-6 to Methodist College in non-conference women's lacrosse action. The loss drops the Lady Bobcats record to 0-8 this season.

Methodist opened up an early 2-0 lead, and extended it to 4-1 with just over twenty minutes to play in the half. Brittany Dabkowski would get two back for the Lady Bobcats at 18:41 and 13:06 to pull Lees-McRae within one. Julia Campbell found the back of the net for her third of the year with 1:14 to play, sending the teams into halftime tied at four.

Bridget Holcomb gave the home side the lead just 1:52 into the second half. Laura Hawthorne would tie things up just ten seconds later, but much like the game the day before, the Lady Bobcats could not sustain their momentum in the second half. Methodist would score the next three goals for the 8-5 lead before Dabkowski would pull the visitors to within two. Methodist would respond by scoring the final five goals of the game, each roughly two minutes apart over the final ten minutes, halting any momentum the Lady Bobcats tried to secure.

Lauren McGonagle led the attack for Methodist with a game high eight goals. Jessica Lutzow, Kelsie Britt and Christina Layson all chipped in with singles while Holcomb buried a pair.

Dabkowski, (pictured top left), scored a hat trick for the second consecutive game while Marjie Lesser, Laura Hawthorne and Campbell all registered singles.

The Lady Bobcats will open the home portion of their schedule next Monday after starting the year with seven straight on the road. The Lady Bobcats will host Seton Hill March 19th at 4:00pm.
