Women’s Lacrosse PSC downed by Mohawk Valley

UTICA, N.Y. — Potomac State went into halftime trailing 7-6, but the Lady Catamounts were unable to convert on opportunities in the second half and fell to the Mohawk Valley Hawks, 16-9, Sunday afternoon.

The Cats struck first on a shot from Morgan Fair. Mohawk Valley answered and the first half was back-and forth with MVCC carrying a one-goal lead into the break. Strong defense by the Hawks held Potomac State to just eight8 shots on goal, two of which were converted from free positions by Kayla Littleton and Lindsey Chamberlain. Chamberlain finished with two goals and an assist while her twin sister Savannah added two goals.

Amanda Thomason scored two goals from crease rolls, while Littleton, Fair, and Dusti McClemens rounded out the scoring with a goal apiece.

Keeper Jerica Blanding made 10 saves in the cage.

Potomac State falls to 5-7 on the season with two games left before the Region XX tournament. The Lady Cats return home on Tuesday to play CCBC Essex at 5 p.m. on Stayman field. Proceeds from the game will go to the One Love Foundation in memory of Yeardley Love, a University of Virginia lacrosse player who died as a result of domestic abuse from her boyfriend in 2010.
