ROCKVILLE CENTRE, N.Y. (Mar. 6, 2016)- The Molloy Women’s Lacrosse team falls to The Assumption Greyhounds this past Sunday afternoon (Mar. 6) at home with a score of 12-9.

The Greyhounds came out strong with an early 5-goal lead over the Lions. By half time, Assumption had a comfortable 8-3 lead over Molloy.

According to the Molloy Lions website, “Molloy (2-2) was led by a three-point outing from four different players, as attackers Alexa Watson (Massapequa Park, N.Y.) and Jessica Markowitz (Baldwin, N.Y.) along with midfielder Brianna Wilson (Levittown, N.Y.) each scored a pair of goals and added an assist. Junior midfielder Cooper Sesselman (Lindenhurst, N.Y.) had a goal and two assists for the Lions while senior midfielder Katie O’Brien (Oyster Bay, N.Y.) collected two helpers in the effort. Graduate attacker Meghan Orlando (Hicksville, N.Y.) scored a marker in the game while freshman Casie Caiazza (Melville, N.Y.) notched her first career collegiate goal in the defeat for the maroon and white. Despite taking the loss, red-shirt junior goalie Caroline Winters (Baldwin, N.Y.) made 11 saves in attaining her fourth double-digit save performance through the first four games of the season.”

    It is unfortunate that the Lions had a loss on Sunday. I haven’t been able to attend any of the games yet but I plan on attending one soon.
