HANOVER, Ind. – Junior Meg Finn (Newburgh, Ind.) scored twice but the Hanover women's lacrosse team suffered a 17-3 loss to Albion (Mich.) at home Sunday afternoon.
Finn tallied her second multi-score game of the season, giving her six goals on the season. Classmate Emma Boomershine (Louisville, Ky.) added her 15th goal of the spring as well.
Hanover (2-4) received a goal from Boomershine on a free position attempt at the 18:30 mark of the first half, tying the contest at one-all. The Britons (4-2) though, fired off seven unanswered goals to close the first half, taking an 8-1 lead into the intermission.
Finn tallied the first of her two second half goals at 26:36, pulling HC within six goals, 8-2. However, that would be as close as the Panthers would get as Albion outscored HC 9-2 over the final 30 minutes. The junior added her second goal at the 11:08 mark of the second half off an assist from senior Rachel Davis (Indianapolis, Ind.).
Finn paced the Panthers with six attempts, while junior Kinna Laymon (Fishers, Ind.) added four tries. Junior Julia Long (Cincinnati, Ohio) had a team-high six groundballs to go along with 19 saves in goal, one off her career-best mark.
The Blue and Red will look to bounce back quickly as they open Heartland Collegiate Lacrosse Conference play at Earlham on Monday, March 18. The Panthers and Quakers are slated for a 7 p.m. start.
