Womens Lacrosse falls to Mt. Aloysius

The lady Yellow Jackets lost their second game of the season on Saturday to Mount Aloysius with a final score of 14-2. 

Mount Aloysius outscored Waynesburg four goals to none in the first quarter and after that they scored 10 times throughout the last three quarters.  

Mount Aloysius’ Katie Figinski scored six goals while Clara Larisa-Soto scored four and Hanna Geissler and Jordan Mason combined for three goals. Waynesburg did have two goals of their own, both goals coming from Freshman Waverly Lorne. 

“I was excited to play my first collegiate away game,” Lorne said. “So, when the game started, I was ready to give it my all for the team and play a good game of lacrosse.”  

Lorne continued to say how despite the result the team is just excited to be able to play the game. 

“Going into the game our team was just excited to play another game. Game days are our favorite regardless of a win or loss and along with the rest of the team I always go in with a positive mindset on what we can improve on during our game play as we try to put that into practice…”  

Lorne leads Waynesburg in total goals with six so far this season. She has also taken a combined shot total of 13 shots.  

Head coach Stephanie London believes despite the 0-2 start that their season is still just getting started. 

“The main game plan going into today’s game was to take care of the ball, communicate better and move the goalie on shots. I think we have been losing opportunities across the field by not taking care of the ball.” 

London said despite the score, the team continues to improve.  

“Although the score from today’s game may not reflect it, our team made great adjustments defensively throughout the game that allowed us to slow them down and hold them to four goals in the second half. There’s no doubt we will continue to improve. We have a lot of strong players who haven’t even showcased half of their talent yet. We will be looking for them to step up and start producing some key stats going forward.”   

The lacrosse team will face off against a non-conference opponent in Hanover College this Monday night at John F. Wiley Stadium. The game starts at 6pm.
