Lady Cougars Fall in Lacrosse to No. 3 Onondaga Community College

Katline Cartwright

It's been more than three weeks since the last time Genesee Community College has seen any game action, and when they finally did it was against one of the top teams in the country in Onondaga Community College.

The Cougars played the nationally-ranked No. 3 Lazers even in the second half's opening 15 minutes of the 30-minute frame. Onondaga would eventually get the upper hand in the second with a 5-1 edge and that combined with an opening-half 17-2 lead gave Onondaga a 22-3 win.

Onondaga turned it up out of the gate with the game's first seven goals and the last eight of the first, but Genesee had a nice four-minute run in the middle of the first half where the teams played even at 2-2.

Rachel Ladd got the team's first goal from free position and Molly Braden added a marker less than four minutes later to round out the Cougars' first-half scoring.

Bri Heers took a nice feed from Olivia Steedman just 3:20 into the second for Genesee's lone second-half tally.

The Cougars look to get back on the winning track when they host Mohawk valley Community College April 7 at 1 p.m.
