BRYN MAWR, Pa. - The Bryn Mawr lacrosse team was back in action on Applebee Field earlier Saturday afternoon facing another tough Centennial Conference opponent. The Owls faced off against Washington College, and despite a solid effort on the day, it was the Shorewomen who came away with an 18-0 win on the day.
Washington College won the opening draw and managed to convert that early possession into an immediate goal. Katherine Vincent fed the ball to Lauren Brenner, who fired home to put the visitors up 1-0 early. Vincent would pick up her 200th career point just minutes later, assisting on Washington College's second goal of the game. Bryn Mawr did a good job buckling down following that goal, especially on the defensive end. Katie Alpert had a very solid stretch of play where she made several saves in a row to keep the Shorewomen off the board further. However, Washington College stayed determined on attack, and ultimately the visitors would go on to win 18-0.
Alpert continues her assault on the Centennial Conference record books, as the Owls goalkeeper had another strong performance today. The Bryn Mawr netminder made nine saves on the day, giving her 698 in her career. That puts her at sixth all-time in league history in career saves.
The Owls and Alpert will look to keep working towards a solid finish to their season when they get back in action next week. Bryn Mawr will close out their homestand Wednesday afternoon with another league tilt, this time against Ursinus. That game is set to start at 4:30 PM on Applebee Field.
