Wolverines Stumped by Marymount

DOVER, Del. - The Wesley College Women's Lacrosse team fell to a 16-4 defeat at the hands of Marymount University in a Capital Athletic Conference bout on Wednesday night at Drass Field.

Bailey Olds and Paige Brehm each finished with a goal and an assist to lead four different Wesley scorers on the night. Fallon Fore and Maddison Cypher each netted goals as well. Savannah Clough led the squad with four ground balls and made 13 saves in net. Alexis Galloway led the team with four caused turnovers while Rodneisha Scott finished with three caused turnovers and a team-best three draw controls.

Wesley was held scoreless throughout the first half as the Marymount goalkeeper stopped all five shots on goal in the first frame. The Wolverines' offensive drought allowed the Saints to open up an 8-0 lead in the first period. 

After the halftime break, the Wolverines found a way to break the seal and get on the board. Paige Brehm came away with a draw control and immediately looked ahead to Bailey Olds who beat the last Marymount defender and put an uncontested shot past the keeper to get Wesley on the board. The Navy and White scored again a few minutes later when Olds found Fallon Fore in front of the net for a goal.

Later in the second half, Paige Brehm scored the team's third goal of the game on a nifty behind-the-body shot. The attacker drew the defenders and the keeper to the right side of the goal before wrapping her shot around her body to the far post for a score. With 6:52 left, Maddison Cypher converted Wesley's first free position shot in six games to net a goal, but that was all the offense the Wolverines could muster as the Saints came away with the win.

Wesley moves to 2-10 on the season and will continue their CAC trial when they face Frostburg State on Saturday, April 9 at 11:00 a.m.
