SCAD Tops the Lady Hawks in Overtime

ROME--In their first time out this season, Shorter's women's lacrosse team had a tough test in SCAD-Savannah. The teams, former rivals in the National Women's Lacrosse league, shared the league's South Region title one season ago, and were eager to get things going this year. The Bees ultimately came away victorious, topping the Lady Hawks, 16-14 in overtime.

Shorter was down, 12-14, with under a minute to play, but definitely not out. With 36 seconds on the clock, Katie Ott netted her second goal of the game, and 20 seconds later, Bianca Rojas found the back of the net to tie the game at 14 each and forced the extra time.

In overtime, SCAD scored twice to seal the win 16-14.

Mia Wiggins led the Lady Hawks with 4 goals on the day, while Shelby Beverly added 3, and both, Ott and Rojas, finished with 2.

Taylor Moody played the whole game in goal for Shorter, making 11 saves on 27 shots faced.

Turnovers were costly for both teams, as SCAD tallied 24 on the day and Shorter recorded 21. The Bees held the advantage in groundballs, 24-21, as well.

SCAD was led by a six goal performance from Kayla Nelson, while both, Charlotte Walters and Charlotte Cutts added 3 apiece.

The Lady Hawks will be back in action Monday afternoon from Lambert High School in Suwanee, Ga. as they take on Roberts Wesleyan College; game time is set for 1:00 pm.
