Women’s lacrosse (3-1, 2-1 in the NESCAC) defeated Conn. College in a thrilling 8-7 win last Sunday. The Ephs captured the win when tri-captain Rebecca McGovern ’14 recorded her second goal of the game with 3:12 remaining to secure the late victory for her team.
The game was a constant battle in which offense dominated the first half and defense dominated the second. Midfielder Rebecca Bell ’15 gave the Ephs an early 1-0 lead, scoring off an assist from Molly Belk ’16 just two minutes into the game. Conn. College’s Cecily Cushman provided an answer two minutes later with an unassisted

goal that tied the game at one. The Ephs then went on an offensive attack, scoring four goals in four minutes to go up 5-1 with 14:14 left in the first half. Two of these goals came from Belk, who has been a key aspect of the Ephs’ offense this season at midfield. After the two teams exchanged goals to bring the score to 6-2 in the Ephs’ favor, the Camels went on a scoring spree, tying the game with four unanswered goals to bring the score to
6-6 with 1:42 remaining in the first half.
It seemed as though the offensive parade was going to continue in the second half when McGovern zipped a shot past Conn. College goalie Allisa Dalpe less than a minute into the second half to put the women up 7-6. However, the Ephs defense preserved the 7-6 score for much of the half, as tri-captain Ali Piltch ’14 was a steel curtain, collecting seven total saves in the game. The Camels made a wise substitution late in the game to bring in Erin Moran, who ended the scoring drought with a crucial unassisted goal to tie the game at seven with just 6:30 remaining. Both defenses held strong for the next few possessions until McGovern once again made a big play for the Ephs, netting the game-winning goal with 3:12 on the clock. The women defeated their NESCAC opponent 8-7 to secure their third victory of the season, moving to 2-1 in conference play.
Ground balls were even with both teams picking up 10, while the Ephs held a 23-18 advantage in shots. Williams is currently tied for third in the NESCAC with Bates and Trinity with a 2-1 conference record. The women will face Bates this Saturday at Smith. They will play four other games over spring break, including games against NESCAC foes Tufts and Wesleyan on April 2 and April 5, respectively.
“Conn. College always gives us a good game, they’re scrappy and persistent. I’m glad we came away from Sunday with a win, and with some concrete things to work on for our upcoming games,” McGovern said.
