11th-Ranked Generals Deal Guilford First ODAC Women's Lacrosse Loss

LEXINGTON, Va. – Margaret Klein scored four goals and three assists in Washington and Lee University's 19-13 lacrosse win in a meeting of Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) unbeatens Saturday.

Guilford's Eleanora Keene shared game-high scoring honors with four goals, including consecutive tallies 38 seconds apart in the first half. Her second goal 8:06 before halftime tied the game at 7-7, but Washington and Lee scored the next five goals, which proved enough of a cushion to thwart a Guilford rally.

Sara Holland and Hollis Tardy tallied 15 seconds apart 5:38 before the break and Lauren Procaccino scored 66 seconds later to send the Generals (11-2, 7-0 ODAC) into intermission with a 10-7 lead, their largest of the game at the time.

Meade Brewster connected on a free-position goal to start the second-half scoring and teammate Carly Taglienti followed nearly two minutes later, which opened a 12-7 advantage. Guilford drew to within 13-10 with 16:08 left in regulation on back-to-back Lily Colley goals, but the Quakers (9-4, 7-1 ODAC) drew no closer.

Washington and Lee had 10 different goal scorers, including Greta Witter, who finished with three goals and four assists. Melissa Coggins added two scores and three assists and Meade Brewster had two goals and one helper. Star defender Leanne Stone caused five turnover and picked up five ground balls, both game highs. Cara Milligan made eight saves in nearly 58 minutes in goal.

Colley paced the Quakers' offense with a game-high eight points on three goals and five assists. She broke her own single-season assists record in the game and now has 43 helpers this season. The Generals held Guilford's E'leyna Garcia to a season-low two points on two goals. In addition to scoring four goals, Keene paced the Quakers with four draw controls. Rookie Sammi Milbourn made eight saves in goal for Guilford.

Coach Sarah Lamphier's Quakers visit the University of Mary Washington Sunday (4/13) for a 1:00 p.m. nonconference match.
