By: Elana Garay

Women’s lacrosse were defeated by Aurora University last Wednesday with the score of 13-10. Benedictine fell behind in the second half of the game while they triumphed in the first half.

“We fought hard but the pieces didn’t come together. It was disappointing but we just lost sight of the finish at some point in the second half”, said junior Becca Gullett.

Benedictine began strong by scoring the first two points in the first half. Freshman Ella Campbell scored the first point and senior Samantha Link scored the second goal. The opponent stroke back by scoring a point until Benedictine proceeded to score three consecutive points.

Gullett scored the sixth point for Benedictine and continued with scoring the final point made for Benedictine of the first half. The score finished with 8-5 for the first half.

Aurora scored five consecutive points at the start of the second half. Benedictine fell behind, but still fought back by scoring a two more points until the second half ended.

“It was a very emotional game, we started off really strong with confidence but they started playing stronger and we just started to fall to them. We put up a fight to bring it back but just couldn’t get it in tie. Playing Aurora is always fun because of the rivalry”, said Link.
