Women's Lacrosse Dealt 13-6 Setback to Lynchburg

The Pride women's lacrosse team (0-2 overall) fell behind 9-1 at halftime and was unable to recover in a 13-6 loss to Lynchburg (1-0 overall) on Saturday afternoon.  The game was originally scheduled to be a Greensboro home game but was moved to the road due to weather and playing conditions on Pride Field.

The Hornets raced out of the gate in this one, scoring the first seven goals of the game before Greensboro's Brittany Ziobro beat the keeper for an unassisted score at the 1:38 mark.  Lynchburg would put the final two goals of the half on the board to take a 9-1 lead into the break.

The Pride stepped up in the second half, outscoring the Hornets 5-4 in a losing effort.  Alexa Besch scored twice in the second half with Ziobro, Nadya Fedun and Kirstin Norris adding one goal apiece.

Greensboro finished the day with ten total shots.  The Pride picked up 19 ground balls compared to 24 for the Hornets and converted 10 of their 23 clear attempts on the day.

Kaleigh Hemstock suffered the loss in goal despite a ten save effort.

Greensboro will be back at home on Thursday with a 4 p.m. game against cross town rival Guilford.
