Lacrosse Falls Behind at Holy Family 14-12
Philadelphia, PA- The Philadelphia University Lady Rams (7-9, 6-5 CACC) fell in their fourth straight contest, this time a 14-12 loss at Holy Family University (9-6, 8-4 CACC) on Saturday afternoon on the road. PhilaU was led by senior midfielder Kathleen Maurer (Rochester, NY/ Our Lady of Mercy) who had five points on the day.
HFU started the first period on a 4-0 run and never looked back, as the Lady Rams trailed 10-7 at the break. Sophomore midfielder Kalin Hodel (West Chester, OH/ Lakota West) tallied one of her three goals in that stanza.
The second period was much of the same as PhilaU tried to scratch their way back, getting as close as one goal twice – on a Hodel goal at 15:54 to make it 12-11 and at 8:13 on a Maurer score to make it 13-12, but that would be as close as the Lady Rams could get.
PhilaU senior goalie Kat Sullivan (Mt. Laurel, NJ/ Lenape) made 14 saves in the loss, while HFU keeper Melissa Jenkins had 15 saves for her squad.
The Lady Ram’s final regular season contest will be on Tuesday (4/27) at home vs. Georgian Court University at 5:00 p.m.
