Women’s Lacrosse - Plymouth State 16, Pacific 5:

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Pacific found scoring hard to come by in snowy and windy conditions in the first game of their Colorado road trip Saturday as the Boxers fell to Plymouth State 16-5 in women’s lacrosse action at Colorado College’s Washburn Field.
 
The Boxers (4-2) scored just one first half goal, which came off a free position shot by Kelly Stevens (Sr., Colorado Springs, Colo.) just a minute into the contest.  The Panthers (2-1) went on to score seven straight goals to close the half and five of the first six goals in the second half.  The game was played in snow with a game-time temperature of 19 degrees with winds of upwards of 30 miles per hour.
 
Stevens finished with three goals in her homecoming to go along with two draw controls.  Carmen Taplin (Sr., Hillsboro, Ore.) and Katie Oliver (Fr., Portland, Ore.) scored one goal apiece.
 
Shannon Connerty led Plymouth State with seven goals and an assist.  Caitlin Swanson scored three goals and Amy MacDonald scored two to go with three assists.  Four other Panthers’ players finished with one goal apiece.  Plymouth State outshot the Boxers 31-21 and held a 32-22 advantage in ground balls and a 15-8 edge in draw controls.
 
After Stevens’ goal at the 28:49 mark opened the game, the Panthers surged on the offensive end of the field.  Swanson’s free position attempt at the 27:18 mark began a 7-0 run for the Panthers over the next 13 minutes.  Connerty scored two of the goals while MacDonald closed the rally with her strike off of Connerty’s assist with 14:16 left.  The defenses bunkered down after that as Plymouth State went into halftime with a 7-1 lead.
 
Connerty scored her third goal of the game just 26 seconds into the second half before Taplin ended a half-hour Pacific scoring drought with her free position goal with 28:27 to go. The Boxers went on another 12-minute dry spell from there as the Panthers scored four straight and took an 11-2 lead with 20:37 left on MacDonald’s second goal of the contest. Stevens scored her second off a free position shot at the 16:57 mark.  Oliver tallied unassisted with 16:18 left and Stevens secured her hat trick with 14:10 to go.
 
Brittany Hartmann (Sr., Portland, Ore.) played just 18 minutes in goal in the loss, allowing six goals while making three saves.  Stephanie Carter (Fr., Applegate, Ore.) made five stops in 42 minutes of action. Lorin Field made 10 saves in the win for the Panthers.
 
Pacific’s Colorado road trip continues on Monday as the Boxers play host Colorado College at 3 p.m. (MDT).
