Lancaster, PA- After trailing by a score of 6-2 mid-way through the first half, the Potomac State Women’s Lacrosse team needed to re-group.

“We took an early time out to re-group and get our focus back”, said PSC Head Coach Katelyn Kesecker. “The girls really responded and from there we never looked back.”

The Catamounts scored seven straight goals and took a 9-7 lead on a goal by Dusti McClemens with 2:31 to play in the first half.

The scoring surge lifted the Catamounts to a slim lead 9-8 going into halftime.

Another strong scoring barrage in the second half sealed the deal as the Catamounts outscored Lancaster 12-7.  

Lancaster Bible tried to get back into the game and Sierra Guenst's first collegiate goal with 18:48 to play cut the Catamount lead to 16-11, but once again Potomac State had an answer and scored three straight goals to make it 19-11 with 14:10 to play.

Potomac State outshot the Chargers 39-30, and once again had the advantage in draw controls, 16-14.

Individually, Lindsey Chamberlain had 8 total points (7g, 1a) and picked up 8 draw controls of her own.

Amanda Thomason had 6 points (4g, 2a), while Savannah Chamberlain had 5 goals, Kayla Littleton tallied 3 goals, and Morgan Fair and Dusti McClemens scored once each.

Defensively, Whitney Ogle had 3 ground balls and 3 caused turnovers, while Chandrea Cleggett scooped up 4 ground balls. Jerica Blanding made 12 saves in the cage, and the Catamounts were a perfect 4-4 for on clear attempts.

In their inaugural season, Potomac State is now 5-5 on the season, with 5 games remaining.
