Women's Lacrosse Falls to Trinity in NESCAC Championship Game

HARTFORD, Conn. - The Trinity College women's lacrosse team held Bowdoin scoreless for a 32-minute span and slowly pulled away for a 13-8 win in the NESCAC Championship game on Sunday.

The top-ranked Bantams (17-1), under the direction of first-year head coach Katy Dissinger (Bowdoin '11), win their fifth consecutive conference title. The fifth-ranked Polar Bears (15-3) were in search of their first conference crown in their second finals appearance. Two of Bowdoin's three losses this year have come at the hands of the Bantams.

Trinity earns the league's automatic bid to the NCAA Division III Tournament while Bowdoin is likely to receive an at-large selection when pairings are announced at 9:30 p.m. Sunday on NCAA.com.

Emma Beecher and Lindsay Picard had three goals apiece for the Polar Bears. Megan O'Conor and Clare McLaughlin also had goals for Bowdoin. Martha Griffin sparked the Bantams with three goals and five assists.

The Polar Bears controlled most of the first half, owning two-goal leads on three occasions (3-1, 4-2, and 5-3). But the Bantams closed the half on a 5-0 run over the final 12:15, thanks to a pair of Karly Simpson goals, to take a 8-5 lead at intermission.

The Bantam defense continued to frustrate the Polar Bear offense in the second half as the hosts burst out of the gate on a 3-0 run, extending their lead to 11-5 before Bowdoin found the back of the net courtesy of Beecher with 11:53 on the clock, ending a scoreless streak of 32:41. The rally proved too late, however, as Trinity ran out most of the remaining time to claim the crown.

Trinity held a 22-19 edge in shots and goaltender Zoe Ferguson made 10 saves for the Bantams. Bowdoin's Isabel Sippel made four saves, allowing 11 goals, in 41:53 of play. Kayli Weiss stopped two shots over the final 18:07 for the Polar Bears.

Three USM Athletes Named to All-LEC Team

GORHAM, Maine -- Three members of the University of Southern Maine women’s lacrosse team were among the players named to the 2015 Little East Conference All-Conference team that was released Wednesday following balloting by the coaches.

Named to the All-Conference first team was junior midfield Anh Nguyen (South Portland, Maine). Earning spots on the second team were junior attack Sarah Pelligrinelli (Southington, Conn.) and sophomore defense Heather Everett (Waterboro, Maine/Massabesic). The all-conference honor was the first for all three players.

Nguyen led the Huskies in scoring this season with 71 points on 40 goals and 31 assists. Nguyen’s 71 points equaled the second highest single-season total in school history, and her 31 assists set a new school record. Nguyen also had 33 ground balls and 33 draw controls.

Pelligrinelli had 65 points coming on a team-high 54 goals and 11 assists. Pelligrinelli’s 54 goals were the third highest single-season total in school history. She tied the single-game record for goals scored (9), including her 100th career marker, and points (10) in the Huskies’ win over the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth on April 25.

Leading the Huskies’ defense, Everett contributed 23 goals and eight assists to the offense while scooping up a team-high 75 ground balls and collecting 32 draw controls.

Southern Maine finished the season 7-12 overall after a 0-5 start, and 3-3 in LEC play. The Huskies advanced to the semifinals of the conference championship tournament.

5/9/15 – Bridgewater State Defeats Saint Joseph’s in NCAA Tourney, 16-9

BRUNSWICK, Maine – Bridgewater State University (13-8) defeated Saint Joseph’s College (17-2), 16-9, in the First Round of the Division III Women's Lacrosse Tournament on the campus of Bowdoin College on Saturday afternoon. Junior Kat Gadbois (Scarborough, Maine) netted four goals with an assist and a pair of caused turnovers in the loss.
Bridgewater State secured the program’s first-ever NCAA Tournament victory with the help of an early scoring surge, as the Bears kicked off the game with six unanswered goals over the opening nine minutes, an effort that proved to be the leading margin (10-4) going into intermission. The Monks put up a fight and played much better in the second stanza, but ultimately would not be able to overcome the early deficit.

The Bears, making their sixth-consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance and seventh overall, move on to the second round and will face #4 Bowdoin College at Ryan Field on Sunday at 1:00 PM. For the Monks, who entered the tourney riding a team-record 17-game winning streak, the loss signals the end of the most successful season in program history.

For the Monks, freshman attack Elyse Caiazzo (Scarborough, Maine/Cheverus) netted three goals, junior attack Mary Leasure (South Portland, Maine/McAuley) scored twice, sophomore Jackie Wilson (Tiverton, R.I.) added an assist with three ground balls and three caused turnovers, and junior goalkeeper Michelle Cunha (Enfield, Conn.) totaled nine saves.

For the Bears, junior attack Marissa Yowell (Ashland, Mass.) registered four goals, two assists and a pair of caused turnovers, sophomore attack Melissa Renauld (Framingham, Mass.) scored four goals with an assist, sophomore attack Alex King (Weymouth, Mass.) potted four markers, and junior midfielder Lauren Geary (Hull, Mass.) tallied three goals, six draw controls and three caused turnovers in the historic victory. Sophomore goalkeeper Allie Forman (Marblehead, Mass.) made eight stops between the pipes for Bridgewater State.

Yowell lifted the Bears to 1-0 lead with her first of four scores on the day, hitting pay dirt on a free-position attempt just 21 seconds into the contest. The junior produced a carbon copy of the goal just over two minutes later, firing a free-position shot past Cunha to make it a 2-0 game with 27:35 left in the first half.

The Bears’ scoring barrage continued with goals from King (22:47), Yowell (21:46) and freshman defender Brooke Buckner (Foxboro, Mass.) (21:09) before Gadbois finally put the Monks on the board with an unassisted strike at the 19:31 mark.

Unfortunately for the Monks, the team’s first goal proved to be just a temporary delay in the Bears’ offensive efforts, as King and Renauld netted the next two goals to lift Bridgewater State to an 8-1 cushion with 13:23 remaining in the opening period.

Saint Joseph’s showed signs of life by scoring consecutive goals in a matter of 48 seconds, as Caiazzo (12:16) and Gadbois (11:28) netted unassisted markers to cut the Monks’ deficit to 8-3. King followed with her third score of the game off a Yowell feed with 10:20 left in the first frame and Gadbois (5:55) and Renauld (3:49) traded goals in the final six minutes leading up to the break, accounting for the 10-4 score at halftime.

In the first half, Bridgewater State owned leads in shots (22-7) and draw controls (13-2) while Saint Joseph’s held a slim 9-8 edge in ground balls. Cunha notched perhaps her best 30 minutes as a collegiate keeper, making all nine of her saves in the first frame.
Halftime adjustments seemed to pay off in the opening minutes of the second stanza, as the Monks controlled play until Gadbois scored her fourth of the game with 26:19 remaining. Any momentum gained by St. Joe’s was quickly thwarted however, as the Bears won the ensuing draw control and King answered the Gadbois goal with her fourth of the afternoon just 17 seconds later and Yowell scored on a free-position attempt to make it a 12-5 game with 25:31 on the clock.

Despite efforts to the contrary, the Monks were unable to sustain pressure in the Bears’ end as the New England Region counterparts swapped scores during the final 20 minutes of the contest.

Overall, Bridgewater State held advantages in shots (30-23) and draw controls (20-7) while Saint Joseph’s maintained an 11-10 lead in ground balls on the afternoon. The Bears were successful on 10 of 13 clear attempts while the Monks were 12 for 21 on clearing bids in the losing effort.

Bridgewater State was 4-7 on free-position attempts while Saint Joseph’s did not record a free-position shot in the tourney setback.

Women's Lacrosse Storms Bridgewater State in NCAA Second Round Win

BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin College women's lacrosse team scored eight times in the final 7:35 of the opening half to pull away from Bridgewater State University in a 22-9 win in the Second Round of the NCAA Division III Tournament Sunday at Ryan Field.

The fourth-ranked Polar Bears improve to 16-3 on the season while the Bears finish their year with a record of 13-9. Bowdoin advances to the Third Round next Saturday against The College of New Jersey at a site to-be-determined. More information will be announced early this week. Bowdoin has never failed to reach the NCAA Quarterfinals in any of its previous five Tournament appearances.

Emma Beecher led the way for Bowdoin with four goals, two assists and ten draw controls in the win. Lindsay Picard led all players with five goals while Megan O'Connor had three. Eleven different Polar Bears scored en route to a season-high goal total for the hosts.

Bridgewater was led by three goals from Lauren Geary, who also had a pair of assists. Marissa Yowell had two goals in the loss for the Bears.

Bowdoin appeared to have the game in hand as they sprinted to a 7-2 lead just 15 minutes into the contest. But Bridgewater rallied, rolling off three straight goals, and closed to within 7-5 after a Geary score with 8:35 remaining in the period, forcing a Bowdoin timeout.

The Polar Bears came out firing after the stoppage in play, scoring twice in a 32-second span from Clare McLaughlin and Dana White. Bowdoin then dropped the hammer with five goals in the final 3:34 of the stanza, including three from Picard, to make it 15-5 at the break.

The contest was in running time for the entire second half as the Polar Bears scored the first six goals of the frame to extend their lead to 21-5. Bridgewater scored four of the game's final five goals.

Bowdoin held a 37-18 edge in shots and controlled the pace of play thanks to a commanding 26-7 lead in draw controls. Allie Forman made eight saves in the first 47:58 of play for Bridgewater State before being relieved by Chandler Ross, who made one stop in the final 12:02. Isabel Sippel did not make a save in the first half for Bowdoin while Kayli Weiss made one stop in the second period for Bowdoin.

Hatch was named to the first team, while the other three Colby players were on the second team. The IWLCA breaks down New England schools into two regions. Colby, Bowdoin, Bates, Tufts, and Middlebury are part of the Pilgrim Region

Hatch was already named to the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) First Team and was an All-Region selection last year. She led the Mules in goals (30), assists (26), points (56), draw controls (45), free-position goals (9), and caused turnovers (18) from her midfield position.

Hatch finished her Colby career with 55 goals and 46 assists for 101 career points in 59 games. She had a shot percentage of nearly 46 percent and had 111 draw controls, 61 groundballs, and 41 caused turnovers.

Miller, a captain along with Hatch, had her best season with 22 goals and six assists for 28 points. She had a shot percentage of 44.9, 21 groundballs, and 10 caused turnovers. Miller finished her career at Colby with 51 goals and 11 assists for 62 points.

Brokaw, the Co-NESCAC Rookie of the Year, made a huge impact on defense for the Mules in her first year. She led the team in groundballs (29) and was first among starting defenders in both caused turnovers (16) and fewest turnovers (7). Brokaw also had eight draw controls and was a key player for Colby on clears.

Fritts missed the first four games of the season after getting a late start after her women's hockey season. She immediately made an impact in her first year and finished the season with 23 goals and three assists for 26 points. Fritts leads the NESCAC in shot percentage at an amazing 82.1 percent (23 goals, 28 shots). The next best shooter in the league with 25 shots or more is teammate Kendall Smith at 69 percent.

Big Second Half Leads TCNJ over Bowdoin in NCAA Women's Lacrosse

HARTFORD, Conn. - The College of New Jersey women's lacrosse team scored six unanswered goals in the final 18 minutes to defeat Bowdoin, 10-5, in the Third Round of the NCAA Division III Championship on Saturday at Trinity College.

Bowdoin jumped to a 3-0 lead in the first seven minutes before TCNJ rallied to tie the score with three straight goals over a five-minute span midway through the opening period. O'Connor and Natalicchio traded goals before the break as the contest entered halftime tied at 4-4.

Beecher put home a free-position shot six minutes into the second period to give Bowdoin a 5-4 lead that they carried until the 18:04 mark when Natalicchio spearheaded the Lions game-winning spurt. She scored four goals - all unassisted - in a span of 6:04 to turn a one-goal deficit into a 8-5 lead with 12:00 remaining. With Bowdoin pressing to get back into the game, TCNJ goaltender Kelly Schlupp made six big second-half saves to shut the Polar Bears out over the final 24:04. The Lions tacked on a pair of late goals to seal the 10-5 win.

Schlupp finished with eight saves in the win for TCNJ. Isabel Sippel made seven saves in goal for Bowdoin over 53:25. Kayli Weiss surrendered one goal in 6:35 of play.
