Sixth-seeded Women's Lacrosse Falls To Third-Seeded Eagles In CAC First Round

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – The sixth-seeded Marymount women's lacrosse team concluded its CAC postseason run on Saturday afternoon, falling on the road to third-seeded and No. 9 Mary Washington, 17-6, in the opening round. 

Although the Eagles (15-3) put away the first two goals of the game, the deficit for the Saints (9-9) was cut in half when senior Kellen Cannon went unassisted on her first of two goals for the game. 

However, a short five-goal spurt moved Mary Washington out to a commanding six-goal lead at 7-1 with 16:34 remaining in the first half. 

Junior Gabby Albig stopped the run with an unassisted goal, and Cannon's second goal and a finish by junior Jessica Crew kept the Saints within striking distance at the half, 10-4. 

A strong opening to the second half had MU find the back of the net twice in the first two minutes. Sophomore Eliana Cassel capitalized on a free-position attempt, before junior Bridgette Stacom added her lone goal for the game. 

Unfortunately, that was the last of the Saint scoring for the game, while the Eagles added seven more to seal up their bid to the semifinals. 

Junior Holly Reik tended for almost 56 minutes of the game, making 14 saves, the 11th game this season with double-digit saves. 

The Saints will wait to see if their season continues in a week and a half in the ECAC Tournament to defend their title they won in 2017, a first in program history.
