The Potomac State College Women’s Lacrosse Team put an end to their four game losing streak with a 13-8 win over Frederick Community College at Stayman Field. This was their first win of the season.

On Sunday, April 10, the Lady Cats combined a week of hard practices and scouting to edge a win over FCC at the Catamounts first home game.

The Lady Cats came out strong scoring nine points in the first 30 minutes of play to put them up by eight at halftime.

Frederick made a 7-point run in the beginning of the second half, coming within one point of the Lady Cats, but PSC was able to close them out with 4 goals in the last four minutes of the game.

Savannah Chamberlain, Hannah Bennett, Kayla Littleton, and Lindsey Chamberlain all ended the game with a hat trick, scoring three goals each. Littleton also provided 3 assists.

FCC had previously beaten the Catamounts 16-9 in their season opener. As a tiebreaker, the Catamounts will travel to Frederick on April 25 to play FCC for a third time this season.

The Lady Cats played again on their home turf the following Tuesday, April 12, against Anne Arundel Community College. The Catamounts fell to AACC by a score of 17-9.

On Saturday, April 16, Potomac fell to College of Southern Maryland, 17-9, but rebounded just one day later on Sunday by staging a comeback win against CCBC Essex by a score of 14-13.

The Lady Cats rounded up their season by losing their last two games to Howard Community College (17-8) and Frederick Community College (8-7).

Quincy Oram, Lindsey Chamberlain, and Hannah Bennett were the team’s top 3 scorers for the season.
