Savannah, Ga.—While the Lady Hawks were victorious when the two teams faced each other earlier in the season, it was the Bees that found the edge this time; defeating Shorter 16-12.
The loss drops the Lady Hawks to 10-4 on the season and 3-1 in the NWLL South Region. SCAD improves to 10-3 overall and 3-1 in conference play.
In a game that was balanced offensively, both teams knew that it would come down to the very end. Just a few weeks ago, Shorter overcame a five goal halftime deficit to force overtime, and ultimately came out on top. Bianca Rojas, who scored the winning goal for the Lady Hawks on February 16, along with Shelby Beverly led the scoring attack for Shorter this time around, notching three goals each.
Down 8-5 at the intermission, the Lady Hawks came out fighting; tying the game at 10 a piece with 17:46 to play on a goal from Rojas, but the Bees found their stride and used a 6-2 run to put the game away.
Taylor Moody manned the goal for the Lady Hawks, playing the full sixty minutes; making ten saves on twenty-six shots faced.
Shorter won seventeen draws, took advantage of twelve SCAD turnovers, and went 1-1 on clear attempts. The Bees had the advantage on groundballs with fourteen, and outshot the Lady Hawks 37-23.
Women's Lacrosse will back in action, April 9, as they host Young Harris on Senior Night at Ben Brady Field. Game is set to begin at 5pm.
