The Shenandoah University women’s lacrosse team lost 7-6 against the Roanoke College Maroons on Tuesday. It was the Hornets’ first in-conference game of the season.
The first half was a goaltending battle. The Maroons scored rather quickly, but Shenandoah junior Annie McCorry came back with a goal of her own to tie the game at the 15 minute mark. The game looked as if it would go into halftime tied, but the Maroons’ Allison Beames scored her second goal of the game to take a 2-1 lead going into halftime.
The Hornets did not start off the second half well. Roanoke scored four goals within the first ten minutes to give them a 6-1 lead. Though Shenandoah was trailing, the women did not give up. They made a comeback, which left them down by just one with 14 seconds left.
As time was about to expire, junior Abby Zorrilla took a shot that went just wide of the goal.
Beames was the leading scorer in the game with four goals. McCorry had three goals, which was the most for the Hornets.
The Hornets will play on the road against Virginia Wesleyan College on Saturday.
