CHESTERTOWN, Md. – Host Washington College scored the final five goals of the game to turn a 5-4 lead into a 10-4 victory over visiting Ursinus on Wednesday night in a Centennial Conference women's lacrosse game. The Shorewomen improve to 5-3 overall and 1-1 in the Centennial, while the Bears fall to 5-4 and 1-2 respectively.
The Shorewomen, who never trailed, scored the first two goals of the game to lead 2-0 just 29 seconds into the first half. Freshman midfielder Alli Dudley (New Windsor, Md./Francis Scott Key) scored 14 second in after winning the draw control and Dudley found freshman midfielder Katherine Vincent (Wilton, Conn./Wilton) just 15 ticks later to make it 2-0. The Bears got onto the board just 62 seconds later when Emma Ebert scored on a feed from Jayme Verman to trim the lead to 2-1. The Shorewomen made it 3-1 with 20:39 to go in the first on a free position score by junior midfielder Emily Hubley (West Chester, Pa./Bayard Rustin), but the Bears answered with a free position goal of their own with 18:01 remaining by Kitty Dawson to trim the lead to 3-2. Washington scored the final two goals of the half to take a 5-2 lead into halftime on goals by senior midfielder Carly Eisenbrandt (Baltimore, Md./Towson) with 14:34 and 1:43 to go in the opening half. The second Eisenbrandt goal was assisted by senior defender Jillian Undem (Bel Air, Md./Fallston) and the assist for Undem was her first career assist and point.
Ursinus scored the opening two goals of the second half to cut the lead to 5-4 with 26:34 remaining on a Verman tally. Devin Brakel scored the first goal of the second half only 58 ticks in off of a pass from Ebert. The Bears had a chance to tie the game with 19:22 left on a free position attempt by Brakel, but she committed a false start and turned the ball over. The Shorewomen made the Bears pay for the turnover just 18 seconds later on a Hubley free position goal to make it 6-4 and it ignited a game-closing 5-0 run for the hosts. Sophomore attacker Carley Kendall (Harleysville, Pa./Souderton Area) made it 7-4 with 16:48 to go and Vincent cashed in on a free position score to make it 8-4 with 14:34 to go. Hubley made it 9-4 with 6:34 left in the game with freshman midfielder Anna Inserra (Dix Hills, N.Y./Half Hollows Hills West) notching her first collegiate assist and point on the goal and the scoring was capped by Vincent's third goal with 4:18 remaining on a pass from junior attacker Caroline Lovett (Lancaster, Pa./Penn Manor).
