BRYN MAWR, Pa. - The Bryn Mawr lacrosse team took on the defending national champions earlier Saturday morning, and the Owls certainly acquitted themselves well against such difficult competition. Four different players scored for the Owls, and Bryn Mawr put up their highest goal total against Gettysburg since the 2009 campaign. Jessica Calloway and Claire Hampton combined for four saves in the cage for the Owls. Bri Stokes and Kerry McKeever led the way for the Bullets with three goals apiece in their 22-4 win.
The hosts opened the game scoring the first 13 goals of the contest, but Bryn Mawr got on the board with 11:21 to go thanks to a free position shot from Kylie Woo. The sophomore continues her impressive efficiency on those eight-meter attempts, as she is now 8-11 on the season in converting free position opportunities.
In fact, three of the Owls' four goals came on free position shots. Sidney Bachrach got the second half going in a great direction for the Owls, as she scored an unassisted strike just 53 seconds into the half to give Bryn Mawr their second goal of the game. Then, later on in the half, Isabel Shin and Maeve Donnelly each earned free position shots of their own, and both players converted with well-placed shots to give Bryn Mawr their four goals on the day.
Bryn Mawr will now return home to Applebee Field for their final home contest of the season on Wednesday afternoon. The Owls will welcome Bi-Co rivals Haverford to campus for a 5:00 PM matchup on Wednesday. Then, Bryn Mawr will close out their season on Saturday, April 27th, as they travel to western Maryland to take on McDaniel in what could be a very exciting Centennial Conference showdown.
