W&L WOMEN'S LACROSSE EDGES RANDOLPH-MACON, 6-5, FOR ODAC TITLE

LEXINGTON, Va. – Top-seeded Washington and Lee overcame a 5-2 deficit late in the second half to post a 6-5 win over third-seeded Randolph-Macon in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference Championship game. For the 12th-ranked Generals, it was their third consecutive conference crown.

W&L (14-3) began the comeback with 14:07 remaining when senior midfielder Kitt Murphy (New York, N.Y./St. Catherines) found the net unassisted. Murphy then notched a free position goal with 11:48 remaining and competed the comeback with another unassisted tally with 5:36 remaining in the game. Senior midfielder Kristen Brown (Baltimore, Md./Catonsville) then scored the game-winner with 3:51 left in the game as she found the net unassisted.

Randolph-Macon (10-6) led 2-1 at the half and extended its lead with a three-goal spurt over a course of 3:42 midway through the second stanza. Freshman attacker Halley Boring (Laurel, Md./Atholton) began the run with a goal at the 18:36 mark and ended the surge by assisting on a goal by freshman defender Morgan Sergi (Phoenix, Md./John Carroll) at the 14:54 mark.

Murphy finished with three goals for the Generals, while Brown, junior midfielder Louisa Feve (Bethesda, Md./Winston Churchill), and senior attacker Erin Rathbone (Darnestown, Md./Northwest) all had one goal. Freshman Sarah Tilbor (West Simsbury, Conn./Simsbury) made seven saves in goal.
