Top Ranked Quakers Shut Down Hollins

Roanoke, VA - Hollins University Lacrosse vs Guilford College, April 10, 2013

Box Score

With just three regular season games left on the schedule, the Hollins lacrosse team welcomed Guilford College to campus on a beautiful Wednesday afternoon.  The Quakers came into the game ranked first in the ODAC, having yet to taste defeat in league play.

Hollins came out and made it tough on the top ranked Quakers early in the matchup.  However the relentless Guilford attack finally broke through the Hollins defense, scoring a pair of goals in the games first 10 minutes.  Guilford added another two goals over the next 10 minutes of play and when the halftime horn sounded the Quakers enjoyed a seven goal lead.  The defense for the home team started to wear down early in the second half and when the Hollins offense got on the board they found themselves in a big hole.  The Quakers finished the game strong and when it was all over, the road team came away with a 15-1 ODAC victory.

Meg O'Brien (Chattanooga, TN) provided the Hollins offense with her sixth goal of the season.  O'Brien shares the Hollins point lead with eight.  Corinne Nicholson (Takoma Park, MD) made nine stops on the afternoon to anchor a Hollins defense that caused 12 Quaker turnovers.  Chanci Wright (Eden, TX) led the way with four caused turnovers, tying her for the conference lead.  Rikki Martinez (Corpus Christi, TX) added five ground balls, giving her a team leading 33 on the season, while Jessie Deese (Cary, NC) corralled three draw controls.

Lilly Colley led the Quakers with four goals and two assists while E'leyna Garcia added three goals and handed out five helpers.  Eleanora Keene and Becca Colley scored a pair of goals and Liza Mettler went the distance in goal, recording four saves.

Hollins will play their final home game on Saturday when ODAC rival Sweet Briar College comes to town for a 1:00pm start.  Before the game Hollins will honor their four seniors who will be playing at home for the final time.
