Laxwomen Tie Dartmouth, Lose to Yale

By Keith Salkowski

Playing catch-up ball is always a risky venture, as the Radcliffe lacrosse team learned the hard way Saturday, continually falling behind before tying Dartmouth, 6-6, and then losing to Yale, 9-7.

In the game against the Big Green, Ellen Seidler prevented a 'Cliffe loss by taking a Sarah Mleczko pass and drilling home a shot with two minutes left to play.

See-saw Play

See-saw defensive play characterized the first period action, as the teams traded goals before resting at half-time with the score knotted at three-all.

Mleczko gave Radcliffe the lead three minutes into the second half, but Caroline Scott--who scored all six Dartmouth goals--came back with two unanswered tallies to put the Big Green back in command.

With 15 minutes gone in the period, Mleczko tied the score at five-all, but Scott came back with her sixth goal four minutes later.

Scott's efforts went for naught, though, as Seidler's second score of the game tied it at 6-6, and the game ended that way.

In the Yale game, Eli Anne Keating broke a 7-7 deadlock with her fourth goal of the contest at 14:40 of the second half, and an insurance tally by Mariana Coleman iced the victory for Yale with two minutes to play.

Early Ell Lead

Scores by Keating gave Yale an early 2-0 lead before Anne Johnson. Carrie Minot and Mleczko each tallied once to put Radcliffe ahead.

But the remainder of the period belonged to Yale, as Coleman, Keating and Stacy Austin each scored, giving the Elis a 5-3 half-time advantage.

Emily Montgomery increased Yale's lead to 6-3 early in the second half, but then the 'Cliffe laxwomen began a sustained counterattack.

With 4:40 gone, Seidler narrowed the margin to 6-4, and five minutes later Mleczko scored on a fancy under-handed shot while cutting across the middle. Radcliffe tied the scored at 10:25 as Wistie Oppenlander snuck around from behind the crease and forced her shot through a crowd and into the nets.

Back on Top

Austin put Yale back on top with 13:05 gone, but 50 seconds later Johnson evened it up, and the stage was set for Keating's decisive tally.

In the final game of the afternoon, Yale defeated Dartmouth, 7-3, as Keating scored four times again.
