The Genesee Community College women's lacrosse team deserved better than an 8-6 loss to visiting Erie Community College April 12.
The Cougars took a late 4-2 lead in the first half and peppered the Erie goalie with almost twice as many shots as Erie could muster on Genesee. After dropping a pair of games to Erie last season by a dozen or more goals in each contest, the Cougars appear to be on the cusp of finally overtaking the Kats in the very near future via the play and result of Wednesday's contest.
Bri Heers was in on half the Cougars' offense with three points from a pair of goals and an assist. Current GCC Female Athlete of the Week Rachel Ladd also had a multi-point performance with a goal and assist, while Leah Herman, Kali Wright and Ashley Barclay all adding goals.
Ladd recorded a team-high nine groundballs and four other Cougars registered three groundballs apiece that included Allison Duhow, Herman, Wright and current National Junior College Athletic Association Women's Lacrosse Player of the Week Molly Barden.
The Cougars announced a scheduling change that moved up their weekend contest from the afternoon to the morning against North Country Community College on Saturday, April 14 to 9 a.m.
