Warriors Fall Late to Knights

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. Junior Amber Graybill (Pasadena, Md./Northeast) tied her career-high with six points, posting two goals and a career-high four assists to lead Lycoming, but the team succumbed to a late Arcadia rally that gave it a 17-15 non-conference win at the Shangraw Athletic Complex on April 8.

The Warriors (3-8 overall) fell behind by two goals with 12:49 left, but rallied to tie the game less than two minutes later, as junior Maureen Heagy (Drexel Hill, Pa./Drexel Hill) found sophomore Erin Cieniewicz (Shillington, Pa./Governor Mifflin) for a goal and senior Lindsay Schilling (Woodbine, Md./South Carroll) found an opening and drove in for a close range goal to make it 14-14 with 11:13 left.

However, Arcadia (8-3 overall) scored the next three goals, with Haylee Molloy scoring twice during the run to help it take control. Freshman Savannah Fox (Port Deposit, Md./Perryville) scored with two seconds left to round out the scoring.

Through the first 21 minutes, Arcadia held a 5-3 lead before Lycoming rallied with four straight goals, with two coming from senior Brooke Strausser (Myerstown, Pa./Conrad Weiser Area), to help Lycoming take a 7-5 lead. The Knights scored twice before the break to send it into halftime knotted at seven.

In the second half, Lycoming jumped out with the first three goals, as Graybill posted two assists and a goal during the run. Arcadia fought back with three goals to tie the game with 22:50 before sophomore Casey Maguire (Egg Harbor Township, N.J./Egg Harbor Township) and junior Sarah Quigley (New City, N.Y./Clarkstown South) scored to give Lycoming a 12-10 lead, setting up Arcadia's final run.

With Strausser's four goals, she now has 27, making her the fourth player in school history to post 25 goals in three straight seasons. Strausser also added five draw controls and three ground balls, becoming the seventh player in school history to reach 150 in a career.

Quigley added three goals and Heagy notched a goal and assist. Cieniewicz also posted two goals and six draw controls. Schilling led the Warriors defensively with six ground balls and two caused turnovers. Sophomore Kari Rybak (Boothwyn, Pa./Chicester) added three ground balls and five draw controls.

Dawn Faranetta posted six goals and three assists to lead Arcadia. Meghan Fallon added five goals and Haylee Molloy notched four goals and two assists.

In net, senior Lauren Reitnouer (New Holland, Pa./Garden Spot) posted 11 saves for the Warriors. Arcadia keeper Deanna Thompson stopped five shots to earn the win.

The Warriors get back on the field on Saturday, April 13, when they head to Widener for a Commonwealth Conference action at 1:00 p.m.
