Offense Struggles as CC Falls at Regis

DENVER The Colorado College coaching staff knew it was only a matter of time before Regis University would challenge the Tigers for supremacy among the state's college division women's lacrosse programs.

After the Division II Rangers rolled to a 19-4 victory over CC on Thursday afternoon, it appears the inevitable has happened.

For a little more than 14 minutes, it appeared as though the game would be tightly contested just like the last six meetings.

But after sophomore attacker Madeline Pitkin knotted the score at 2-2 just 9:28 into the game, the Rangers scored the next seven goals to take a 9-2 lead after 30 minutes.

Colorado College's scoring draught continued until sophomore midfielder Leigh Nicholl found the net with only 7:43 remaining. By then, however, RU's lead had swelled to 17-2.

Sophomore attacker Virginia Logue and junior midfielder Elise Burchard also scored for CC.

Senior Abby Fink finished with seven saves before giving way to freshman Martha Smith with 10:50 to play

The Rangers finished with a 28-10 advantage in total shots and a 14-10 edge in ground balls.

Erin Dybus scored four goals for RU, while Hilary Duda added a pair of goals and two assists.

The Tigers still lead the series by a 13-2 count, but Regis has now won two of the last three meetings.

Colorado College (3-8) is idle until Saturday, April 19, when both Fort Lewis College and Adams State College visit Stewart Field. The Tigers play host to the Skyhawks at noon and the Grizzlies at 5:00 p.m.
