The women’s lacrosse team lost 16-13 against Southwestern University at home on March 15.
The Wildcats held their own against the Pirates through the two halves of the game. After falling by six points to Southwestern, Linfield came back to take the lead by one point in the second half only to have it narrowly taken away at the end.
The ’Cats started the game on a slow start by getting only two goals while the Pirates had gotten eight.
Then out of nowhere Linfield got five back-to-back unanswered goals starting with a score by junior Shelby Duarte, who made three of the goals that occurred during this game.
Following Duarte with unstoppable scoring was freshman Nicole Aguilar, senior Sierra Edgerly, sophomore Kelsey Dammerell, senior Hana Gould and junior Chas Tittle.
Going into the second half the ’Cats wouldn’t let the Pirates get away this time, by matching them with every point until Linfield took the lead with a score of 11-10. The Wildcats then begin to lose the Pirates as they continued to score without Linfield being able to stop them, which lead to a final score of 16-13.
Southwestern University traveled all the way from Georgetown, Texas and now has a season score of 4-4.
The women’s lacrosse team will next be playing against Pacific University on March 18 at 5 p.m.
