Hollins Can't Stop ODAC's Best

Roanoke, VA - Hollins University Lacrosse vs Washington and Lee University, April 17, 2014

Box Score

One day after hosting cross-town rival Roanoke College, the Hollins University lacrosse team was back in action as they played their regular season finale against Washington and Lee.  The Generals came into the matchup looking down from their position atop the ODAC standings with a perfect 8-0 conference mark.

The Hollins defense proved up to the task of slowing down the high powered Generals and the game remained scoreless for the first five minutes of play.  Washington and Lee finally broke through the Hollins defense, netting the games first goal.  Hollins then won the next draw and went on the attack but couldn't get a clean shot.  On the next possession, Washington and Lee scored and seized control of the contest.  Hollins kept the game within reach thanks to five, point blank, saves by keeper Maddie Horton (Irvine, CA).  However, Hollins could not capitalize on their stops and the Generals pulled away late in the first half.

Washington and Lee started the second half with all the momentum and they used it to their advantage.  The General shooters had finally solved the Hollins defensive riddle and began to pull away.  As the final horn sounded, the Generals headed back home with a 20-0 ODAC win and pushed their conference leading record to 9-0.

 

Maddie Horton    

 

Horton finished the game with seven saves and four ground balls.  Leading scorer Rikki Martinez (Corpus Christi, TX) equaled Horton's four ground balls while securing five draw controls and causing one turnover.  Erin Staunton (Oak Ridge, NC) had the best scoring chance for Hollins when she picked up a loose ball and took it the length of the field only to be turned back by the Generals keeper.  Staunton added three ground balls as did junior defender Grace Iaquinto (Huntington, WV).

Greta Witter and Lindsay Hanau each netted three goals to lead a balanced Washington and Lee attack that saw 14 different players score.  Melissa Coggins led the way with three assists and keeper Cara Mulligan stopped the only shot on goal to pick up the win in net.

Hollins did not qualify for the eight team, season ending ODAC Women's Lacrosse Tournament and completed the season with an 1-11 record.
