Stevenson Rallies to Edge Claremont-Mudd-Scripps

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Sophomore Spencer Kraus (Mt. Airy/South Carroll) scored a career-high four goals, including three in the second half to tie the game as the No. 19-ranked Stevenson women's lacrosse team rallied from a four-goal deficit for an 11-10 victory over Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Monday night.

The Mustangs (6-1) trailed 9-6 with 10:20 remaining before scoring five of the game's final six goals, including three-straight in a span of 2:04 to tie the game at 9-9.

After the Athenas' Sarah Dick scored her second of the game to push the lead to three, senior Lauren Zegowitz (Gaithersburg/Damascus) netted her lone goal at 9:55 before Kraus scored back-to-back to tie the game at 9:23 and 7:51.

Zegowitz then assisted on the third goal of the game by junior Lisa Baker (Westminster/Westminster) to give Stevenson its first lead of the game with 5:48 left before sophomore Kelli Battista (Elkridge/Long Reach) scored what proved to the game-winner at 3:21.

Sophomore Jenny Schroeder (Severna Park/Seton Keough) totaled five of her eight saves in the second half, including two on free position shots in the final 1:11 to preserve the one-goal victory.

Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (5-1) scored six of its 10 goals on free position shots as the team was 6 for 15 as a result of 28 Mustang fouls. However, after making 4 of 7 in the first half, the Athenas were just 2 of 8 in the second with four of their last five in the final 20 minutes turned away by Schroeder.

The Mustangs also trailed by four in the first half before junior Megan Weiss (Odenton/Seton) scored her second goal with just seven seconds remaining to cut the deficit to three at halftime, 7-4.

Kraus also had four goals in a 23-8 victory at Wesley on Apr. 1, 2008. Devon Scott led the Athenas with four goals while Katie Campbell-Morrison had six saves.
