The Roanoke College women’s lacrosse team had their five game winning streak snapped with a 17-12 loss to Randolph-Macon in Ashland Saturday. The Maroons are now 5-10 overall and 5-2 in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference.
Morgan Barlow scored an unassisted goal 12 minutes into the contest. Decker tacked on another just 45 seconds later to give RC an early 2-0 lead.
Randolph-Macon responded with a 6-1 run over the next seven minutes but Roanoke then used a 4-1 run, highlighted by a pair of goals from Clements, to tie the game at 7-7 with just under five minutes left in the half. Alicia Hsieh scored back-to-back goals in the final two minutes to send the Yellow Jackets into the intermission with a 9-7 lead.
Randolph-Macon opened the second with a pair of goals in the first 30 seconds before Olivia Camillo made it 11-8 R-MC off a pass from Katerina DeSimone but that would be as close as the Maroons would get as the Randolph-Macon held the lead for the remainder of the contest.
Roanoke closes out the regular season against Virginia Wesleyan on Saturday at home at 1 pm at Kerr Stadium in Salem. The Maroons can clinch at least the third seed in next week’s conference tournament with a win.
