Shorewomen Fend off Scots

CHESTERTOWN, MD -- Senior midfielder Brittany Lambert (Riva, MD/South River) scored four goals to help rally host Washington College past visiting College of Wooster, 9-7, in a non-conference women's lacrosse game tonight on Kibler Field at Roy Kirby, Jr. Stadium. The Shorewomen improved to 4-1 with the win, while the Fighting Scots fell to 2-1 with the loss.

Wooster held a 4-2 lead with under six minutes to play in the first half. Washington senior attacker Suzie Jakub (University Park, MD/St. John's College, DC) scored off an assist from freshman defender Caroline Stanley (Freeland, MD/Hereford) with 5:42 to play in the period to cut it to 4-3, but Wooster's Carly Carey scored off an assist from Hillary Darragh 42 seconds later to give the Scots another two-goal lead. Stanley scored off an assist from sophomore attacker Sarah Cannon (Baltimore, MD/Notre Dame Prep) with 3:30 left in the period to bring the Shorewomen to within one goal, 5-4, before halftime.

The Shorewomen opened the second half with five unanswered goals to surge ahead, 9-5. Jakub scored off a feed from sophomore midfielder Sam Ohrem (Ridgefield, CT/Ridgefield) with 25:30 on the clock and Ohrem followed with a goal of her own to give the Shorewomen the lead for good with 22:22 to play. Lambert then scored three straight free-position goals with 20:00, 13:50, and 11:51 to play, respectively, to give Washington the four-goal cushion. Wooster scored its first goal of the second half when Jess Cleveland scored on a free-position with 5:52 remaining and cut the lead to 9-7 when Becca Worthington scored off an assist from Darragh with 1:49 left. Washington sophomore midfielder Caitlin Morrison (Collingswood, NJ/Collingswood) thwarted the Scots' final possession when she drew a charge just outside the crease with 1:08 remaining to give the ball back to the Shorewomen. Washington cleared the ball and ran out the clock to hold on for the win.

Jakub finished with two goals to join Lambert as the Shorewomen's two multiple-goal scorers. Stanley and Ohrem each contributed one goal and one assist for Washington, while sophomore midfielder Liz Cumberpatch (Annapolis, MD/Annapolis) scored one goal and Cannon had two assists.

Carey led the Scots with two goals and one assist, while Nina Dine scored two goals and Darragh tallied two assists. Cleveland and Worthington each finished with one goal for Wooster.

WC sophomore goalie Amber Madore (Columbia, MD/Wilde Lake) made eight saves for the Shorewomen, while Jamie Dannenberg made 13 stops in the loss for Wooster.

Washington held a 31-22 advantage in shots in the game. Wooster turned the ball over 28 times and was just 13-of-25 on clear attempts.

The Shorewomen return to action Saturday with their Centennial Conference opener, a 1:00 p.m. home game against Dickinson.
