YORK, Pa. – The Marymount women's lacrosse team finished off the regular season on Wednesday night against its third-straight IWLCA Top-10 opponent, falling to No. 5 York College of Pennsylvania, 15-5.
A team that leads the CAC in free-position goals, three of the five goals scored by the Saints were from the eight-meter fan, going 3-for-5 for the night. On the other end of the field, the Spartans were held to 3-for-12 on free-position attempts, partly due to the 16-save effort by junior Holly Reik in the cage.
The 16 saves mark the 10th time this season Reik has reached double figures, now sitting with 168 for the season, the second-best mark in the league. She also ranks third in the league in save percentage with 49.6 percent.
Four different Saints scored in the game led by junior Jessica Crew with two. Sophomore Eliana Cassel, who scored MU's first goal of the game, and seniors Kellen Cannon and Abby Wescott each added one finish, while Wescott also added an assist to Crew.
Crew sits third in the league in goals with 52, and Wescott comes in at second in assists and points with 35 and 65, respectively. With 294 points now for her career, Wescott has moved into ninth place in CAC history, while her 173 assists ranks second.
Marymount gears up for the CAC postseason, traveling back to No. 9 and third-seeded Mary Washington on Saturday, April 28 for the first round. Start time is set for 1 p.m.
