Lacrosse Begins ODAC Schedule

SWEET BRIAR, Va. --- Lacrosse hosted Virginia Wesleyan College on Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. on Babcock Field.  The contest was the first 2014 Old Dominion Athletic Conference matchup for both teams.

The visiting Marlins took a three goal lead to start the game, but SBC's Allison Hassard (Greensboro, N.C./Grimsley) put the Vixens in the scoring column and halted the run (3-1) at 23:06.  VWC and Monica Ewansik (Gibsonia, Penn. / Pine-Richland) traded goals midway through the half to push the score to 5-3 in favor of the guests.

Kimberly Orchowski (Crofton, Md. / Arundel) answered two VWC goals with a pair of Vixen goals to pull Sweet Briar within two, but a late half tally by Natalie Furey gave Virginia Wesleyan a three goal lead at the break.

Orchowski opened second half scoring, but the Marlins scored three unanswered goals and took a five goal advantage (11-6).  Sweet Briar again scored twice unanswered, but VWC responded with a pair of goals to push the score to 13-8 in favor of the Marlins.

Sweet Briar was not able to score and then get the stops it needed and the Virginia Wesleyan Marlins picked up the ODAC win by the final score of 23-11.

Orchowski led the Vixen attack with four goals and two assists.  Ewansik recorded her third hat trick in as many games and tossed in two assists.  Goalkeeping duties were split between Emily Williams (Zionville, Ind./Zionsville Community) and Ashton Reid (Concord, Va. /Rustburg) came on in relief in the second.

With the loss, SBC drops to 0-3 overall and 0-1 on the ODAC.

Lacrosse next faces Bryn Mawr College on Monday, March 10.  The game will be played in Hilton Head Island, S.C. as part of the SBC lacrosse spring break.
