Saturday, March 18, 2017 - 9:09 am

Alexandra LaMotte found Kiera Taussig at the top of the crease to tie the game 5-5 with just over 10 minutes remaining in the second half, but the St. Lawrence University women's lacrosse team's rally fell short as tenth-ranked Brockport defeated the Saints 6-5 on Friday afternoon at North Country Field.

St. Lawrence was led by Greta Massey with one goal, three ground balls and two caused turnovers. Kara Hurley, Kayla Schmalz, Rachel Boghosian, and Taussig each added a goal for the Saints.

Brockport shot out to a 3-0 lead early in the first half, but the Saints came back with two goals before halftime, including Massey's man-up goal, to close the gap to 3-2. Heather Conklin netted an unassisted goal with about 24 minutes to play in the second half to give the Golden Eagles a 5-3 advantage. The Saints scored two goals just 16 seconds apart to tie the game, 5-5. Conklin scored the game winner with just under nine minutes to play.

The Golden Eagles were led by Jessica Boddery and Conklin with two goals apiece, while Taylor Thomas and Kelly Wall each scored one goal for Brockport.

Cricket Wemyss made seven crucial saves for the Saints in the first half, while Olga Lukas stopped six shots in the second half. Caitlin Cavallaro recorded one save for the Golden Eagles.

Brockport improved to 4-0 on the season, while St. Lawrence fell to 1-4.

The Saints will travel to Colorado Springs, Colo., to take on Colorado College and Chapman University during their spring break trip next week.Alexandra LaMotte found Kiera Taussig at the top of the crease to tie the game 5-5 with just over 10 minutes remaining in the second half, but the St. Lawrence University women's lacrosse team's rally fell short as tenth-ranked Brockport defeated the Saints 6-5 on Friday afternoon at North Country Field.
