This past week the University of Hartford’s women’s lacrosse team faced off against Vermont at home. After coming off a huge win against Delaware, they were unable to get another win. This was evident very early on in the game as the Catamounts scored eight goals unanswered within the first 10 minutes of play. The first goal for the Hawks finally came after 16 minutes of the game by sophomore Megan Miller. Jessica Harrison would be the only other Hawks to find the back of the net during the first half as the teams walked off the field 12-3 at the half. The second half saw the Catamounts scoring less than the first but still giving the deficit to the Hawks. The game would finally come to an end with the score being 17-6. The Catamounts would only score five more times with the Hawks scoring three more. However, the Hawks had better defensive stats as goalie Emma Privitera had 16 saves while Vermont only had five saves. The Hawks also came so close to a season best 25 ground balls, but came up only one short. Miller and Harrison led the Hawks in goals as they tried to decrease the deficit. However, their efforts were not enough to have a repeat performance from their Delaware game where they blew out the competition 20-2. The Hawks will be traveling in the next few days to meet their America East competitors. On Saturday March 30, they will be facing off against New Hampshire and then Stony Brook on Wednesday April 3. The Hawks will finally travel back home next Saturday, April 6, where they will be facing off against UMBC at 11 a.m.
