HARTFORD, Conn. – The Connecticut College women's lacrosse team was dealt a 17-2 setback by No. 8 Trinity on Wednesday evening at Jessee/Miller Field.
Trinity (8-2, NESCAC 4-1) rattled off 10 unanswered goals in the first half and never looked back. After sophomore Kate Bermingham (Amherst, N.H.) put the Camels on the board by finishing a pass from classmate Julia Loesch (Charlotte, N.C.), the hosts responded with another six straight markers to move ahead by a 16-1 score. The teams then traded goals in the waning minutes to solidify the final outcome.
Grace O'Donnell and Sophie Berger each contributed three goals and an assist to lead the way for Trinity (8-2, NESCAC 4-1), which outshot the Camels by a 25-10 margin. Morgan Strabley paced the Bantams defensively with three caused turnovers and a ground ball, while goalie Zoe Ferguson picked up the win between the pipes by turning away four shots.
Junior Jamie Navoni (Natick, Mass.) found the back of the net on a free position shot and won six draws to pace Connecticut College in the setback. Freshman Meghan Cunningham (New York, N.Y.) and junior Erin Martin (Scituate, Mass.) finished with two caused turnovers and one ground ball apiece to lead the Camels defensively.
Connecticut College (3-7, NESCAC 0-6) will regroup and return to action when it hosts Bates on Saturday at noon. The program will also recognize its six-member senior class prior to the contest.
