LIMESTONE EDGES OUT LADY EAGLE LACROSSE, 7-6

Limestone entered the contest outscoring its opponents by an average of 11.0 goals per game, and the one-goal differential was the closest game yet for the Saints this season.

The Haven opened up play with the advantage, scoring four minutes into the game on a free position score by Strizki. Strizki again bypassed the Saints' keeper to find the back of the net on another score from the top of the arc within the first six minutes. Limestone answered quickly, however, and midway through the opening half had taken a 4-2 lead off goals by Pam Gateau, Stephanie Allen, Kathy Campbell and Meghan Dennehy. Limestone's Gateau would add one more to the tally before the half, but LHU's tandem of Strizki and Megan Dwyer (Collegeville/Perkiomen Valley) combined for three goals in the latter minutes of the first stanza to tie things up at 5-5 entering into the break.

Limestone came out of the intermission strong, tacking on goals by Dennehy and Campbell within the first four minutes of the half to jump out in the lead, 7-5. Possession bounced back and forth throughout the remainder of the second half, but the Haven made a strong push near the close. Amy Richter (Long Valley, N.J./West Morris Central) took a pass from behind the net from Anne Marie Ritzell (Silver Spring, Md./Springbrook) and sent it into goal with just 1:52 left in the game to bring LHU to within one goal. The Lady Eagles were able to regain possession again within the last minute, but the Limestone defense cleared the ball and used up the rest of the clock for the win.

In goal, Lock Haven's Laura Carr (Warminster/Archbishop Wood) totaled nine saves while Limestone's Jackie Weaver registered 13 stops. The Lady Eagle lacrosse team next hosts Lycoming College tomorrow, Wed., March 19, at 2 p.m. on Charlotte Smith Field.
