Apr 8, 2019
ST. LOUIS, Mo. – The University of Dubuque women’s lacrosse team traveled down south to take on the Missouri Baptist Spartans, where they would fall victim to Missouri Baptist, 13-3.
UD and Missouri Baptist battled for the opening 13 minutes with no goals being scored until Missouri Baptist was the first team to break through in the scoring column with 16:03 remaining in the first half. The floodgates opened for Missouri Baptist after that point, scoring three more goals over the next five and a half minutes and sent UD into halftime down, 6-0. The Spartans were able to fire off five shots in the first half, four of which went on goal but none were able to sneak past the Missouri Baptist goalie.
The first goal of the second half was the first goal of the game for the Spartans. Kori King found the back of the next 3:03 into the second half to get within five goals of Missouri Baptist. Missouri Baptist quickly pushed it back to a seven goal deficit of the Spartans before Sarah Rose picked up UD’s second goal of the game, converting on a Missouri Baptist turnover.
The Spartans were never able to get closer eight goals but with just over four minutes remaining in the game, Gemma Keegan found Sara Rose for her second goal of the contest.
UD goalie Kaley Weir stopped 19 Missouri Baptist shots on Monday afternoon, while also collecting five ground balls and forcing two turnovers. To go along with her goal, Kori King led UD with a team-high four caused turnovers, while also controlling two draw controls and scooping up five goround balls.
The Spartans are right back on the road on Wednesday, April 10th when they travel to Waukesha, Wisconsin to take on Carroll University at 7:00 p.m.
