Lacrosse loses at season opener, 16-2

The Women’s Lacrosse team lost 16-2 to the University of Puget Sound at their season game at home on Feb. 22.

The Loggers started with an early lead, having nine points to the ’Cats one in only the first half of the game.

Junior Shelby Duarte scored the first goal with only 1:44 left on the clock.

During the second half the Loggers continued to hold the control over the Wildcats adding six more goals.

Junior Halee Helgerson got Linfield’s last goal after weaving through the defense to barley make it into the net.

“The numbers on the scoreboard aren’t exactly what we were hoping to see this past Saturday, but I don’t think it reflects our team’s ability in the slightest,” sophomore Kelsey Dammarell said in an email. “We have a lot of potential; we just don’t have the numbers. Yes, we have a lot to work on and I have faith that we’ll continue to do so as the season progresses. Fortunately, our team is very supportive of one another and I truly think it’s our positivity that keeps us going.”

The Wildcats next host a home game against Alma College at 1 p.m. on Feb. 28 at the soccer field.
