Women's Lacrosse Stifled in Road Match-up With Goucher

The Pride women's lacrosse team (0-7 overall) dropped a road match-up with Goucher (5-2 overall) on Tuesday afternoon 17-4.

Greensboro fell behind 2-0 early in the game before Nadya Fedun hooked up with Brittany Ziobro to put The Pride on the board at the 21:15 mark.

The Gophers would turn it up a notch from there, scoring the final seven goals of the half to take a 9-1 lead into the break.

Goucher would control the second half as well, squashing any chance of a Greensboro comeback.  The Pride were outscored 8-3 in the second frame with Micaela Sandoval, Amira Khatib and Ziobro each finding net.

Ziobro fired a team best four shots - all on goal - for Greensboro.  Kendra Allbritton finished with a team high three ground balls and forced five Gopher turnovers.  Kaleigh Hemstock made 14 saves but suffered the loss in goal.

The Pride will have a quick turnaround, with a USA South opening road trip to North Carolina Wesleyan on Wednesday at 4 p.m.
