Macey Lifts Lacrosse Past Notre Dame, Becomes School's All-Time Leading Goal-Scorer
Senior Page Macey (Linthicum, Md./North County)
scored six goals, including the game-winner with 48 seconds left in regulation, to become Frostburg State’s all-time leading goal-scorer and lift the visiting Bobcats past the College of Notre Dame 12-11 Wednesday afternoon.
Macey scored three times in both the first and second halves and now has 183 career goals to move past Maggie Murphy’s former mark of 182 set from 1989-1992.
FSU (5-7) held a 9-5 lead early in the second half before the Gators (3-5) ripped off four straight to pull even with 14:35 left.
Macey then converted a pass from junior Kelley Duncan (Bel Air, Md./C. Milton Wright) with 9:51 remaining before scoring again off an assist from freshman Maria Schrum (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) with 7:59 to play to give the Bobcats an 11-9 advantage.
However, Anne Shippen scored back-to-back goals at 3:34 and 2:38 to pull Notre Dame even, setting up Macey’s game-winning — and record-breaking — goal.
Schrum began the scoring just 23 seconds into the game before the Gators found the net four straight times to take a 4-1 lead.
The Bobcats then stormed back, closing out the first half with seven unanswered goals to open an 8-4 lead at the break.
Schrum tallied two in a row for the Bobcats to make it a 4-3 contest, and Macey added back-to-back scores to as FSU regained the lead.
Schrum notched her career-high fourth goal of the game at the 8:44 mark to boost FSU’s advantage to 6-4, Macey hit again at 4:18 and sophomore Ashley Mattison (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) capped the run with just over a minute left in the period.
The teams then traded goals in the early minutes of the second half with Tina Money scoring for Notre Dame and sophomore Tina Trent (Bel Air, Md./C. Milton Wright) answering for FSU before the Gators went on their four-goal rally to pull even.
Duncan finished with a team-high three assists, while Trent collected six ground balls, caused four turnovers and added three draw controls.
Sophomore Rachael Lewis (Laurel, Md./Wilde Lake) made 16 saves in net to earn the victory.
Frostburg State returns to action Saturday when it visits fifth-ranked College of New Jersey at 1:00 pm.
