HARDEEVILLE, S.C. --- Sweet Briar College wrapped up spring break action with a game against the Bees of Savannah College of Art and Design. SCAD is a NCAA Division II college and two-time defending National Women's Lacrosse League champion.
The Bees ran out to a four goal lead at the start, but Sweet Briar's Monica Ewansik (Gibsonia, Penn. / Pine-Richland) put a stop to the run with a free position goal at the 22:03 mark. Allison Hassard (Greensboro, N.C. / Grimsley) netted a goal a few minutes later to pull the Vixens within in two.
SCAD scored two more goals and then Ewansik and Hassard went to work again, scoring three goals between them to pull SBC within one goal. The hosts answered each attack and at the half SBC faced a two goal deficit with the Bees leading 9-7.
After the break, Ewansik and Hassard added a goal each and Kimberly Orchowski (Crofton, Md. / Arundel) tacked one on with just under four minutes remaining, but the hosts held on to take the 16-10 win.
Ewansik continued her string of multi goal games. In each of the Vixens five games, the first-year has netted three or more goals including a season high five tallies at SCAD. Rookie netminder Emily Williams (Zionsville, Ind./ Zionsville Community) played the entire game and made two stops on the day.
With the loss, SBC now holds a 1-4 record overall. Vixen lacrosse returns to Old Dominion Athletic Conference action on Sunday, March 16. The team travels to Winchester, Va. for a game with Shenandoah University.
