Skyhawks Pull Away in 2ndHalf to Top Adams State

ALAMOSA, Colo. - Shortly after the start of the second half sophomore Lexy Hamilton (Monte Vista, Colo.) tallied her fourth marker of the game to bring Adams State within two goals of visiting Fort Lewis, but the Skyhawks didn't allow another goal in racing to a 21-8 win over the Grizzlies at ASC Lacrosse Field Wednesday afternoon.

The loss drops the Grizzlies to 0-3 overall and in Western Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (WILA) play. FLC, now 3-2 overall, gets off to a 1-0 start in WILA action.

Fort Lewis scored three times in the first four minutes, taking a 3-0 lead on Ally Kvidera's second score of the game with 26:13 left in the first half.

Sophomore Megan Daly (Walnut Creek, Calif.) then started ASC on a roll off a pass from Hamilton, a Grizzly goal that was followed by strikes from freshman Heather Jones (Littleton, Colo.) and Hamilton's first of the game.

The Skyhawks responded with another four in a row of their own and led 7-3 with under 10 minutes to play in the half. Hamilton then tallied her third and fourth of the afternoon, off a free position shot and unassisted, and the Grizzlies were down just 8-5 at the break.

Hamilton's second free position shot goal of the game made it 8-6 just 1:34 after play resumed, but the Skyhawks responded by scoring the final 13 goals of the game.

The Grizzlies were outshot 50-12 in the game, and turned the ball over 27 times. ASC was also just 13 of 28 on clear attempts compared to the Skyhawks' 12 for 14.
