The Army West Point Women’s Lacrosse team used a 6-0 run spanning from the latter portion of the first half into the early goings of the second half to top Holy Cross, 13-10, and pick up its first win of the season yesterday afternoon.
“Anytime you can go on the road midweek against a tough opponent and come away with a win it's great,” Army head coach Kristen Skiera said. “This has postseason implications with the game being against one of our north division opponents. I'm really proud of our women. To come back from a heart-breaking loss against Navy and turn around and start this game hot and with a lot of confidence -- I'm really proud of the team for that.”
“Coming off the game last weekend, I know we felt we had played a lot better than we had in our first two games,” cow attacker Caroline Raymond said. “We were just really excited to come out here today and get a win away from home.”
Army won the draw control battle 19-6. Raymond set a new single-game program record with 12 draw controls, to top Jackie Brattan's previous mark of 11 against Monmouth on March 2, 2019. Read more.
