Lacrosse Suffers Loss to Lynchburg
03/15/2003

LYNCHBURG, VA. — Frostburg State was competitive through the first half, despite four straight Hornet goals that left them down by 4-7 at the break. In the second half, the Red and Black came out strong with two goals in one minute but were stung by another four-goal run that contributed to the 8-12 loss.

Lynchburg opened up scoring in the first half when sophomore Rachel Bauer scored at 29:10. Senior Andrea Duffy (Liverpool, N.Y./Liverpool) replied for FSU when she found the net three minutes later.

The Hornets were quick to attack, scoring four-straight that put them up 5-2. The Bobcats answered with two goals when freshman Stefanie Ritz (Bel Air, Md./C. Milton Wright) found the net at 10:15 off an assist from sophomore Page Macey (Linthicum, Md./North County). Macey helped notch the score up again when she scored at 6:14.

Lynchburg replied with two more goals, but at :42 freshman Kate Nicol (Mt. Airy, Md./Glenelg) capped scoring for the first half when she found the net off an assist from freshman Kelly Duncan (Bel Air, Md./C. Milton Wright).

FSU came out strong in the second half with a score from sophomore Caitlin Howley (Damascus, Md./Damascus) at 28:09 and then Ritz added another goal at 27:10, assisted by Macey.

The Hornets, now up by just one, mounted their second offensive that resulted in four-straight goals in just over six minutes. The Bobcats managed to sneak in two goals. The first, by Duncan at 9:26, the next by Nicol off an assist from Howley at 6:05.

Lynchburg ended scoring when it found the net with 3:55 left to play. Junior goalie Sarah Shockley (Fallston, Md./Fallston) had an impressive performance with 17 saves.

"We showed a little improvement, but our lack of experience was a factor," said head coach Eric Day. "Sarah [Shockley] played a great game and Kim Faust really stepped-up her performance. Our goal is still to get better every day."

Frostburg State returns to action on Sunday, March 16th when it visits Chritopher Newport at 1:00 p.m.
