EASTON, Pa. – The Lafayette women’s lacrosse team fell to Holy Cross on Saturday afternoon in its Patriot League opener inside Fisher Stadium, 20-10.

Juniors Ana White and Laura Kleiber led the way for the Leopards with three goals apiece, while senior Jessica Rothstein added two scores for the Lafayette attack. Taylor Zebrowski scored a game-high five goals, adding three assists for the Crusaders.

The teams were even in ground balls with 14 apiece and Lafayette held a one-shot advantage in total shots, 26-25. The Leopards won 20 of the 32 draw controls, but their three goalies only made two combined saves on the day compared to Holy Cross’ Sarah Weber stopping 11 Lafayette shot attempts.

Both teams began the game ready as they exchanged goals on back-to-back occasions as the game was tied at two apiece after the opening 10 minutes. From there on, though, Holy Cross took control as five straight scores put the Crusaders up, 7-2, with 7:39 to play in the first half.

A marker from White at the 7:14 mark stopped the run, but the Crusaders’ Sara Hennessey and Maddie Carrellas each notched tallies before the end of the half and took a 9-3 lead into intermission.

Kleiber netted two of the first three goals to open the second half, pulling the game to its closest margin since the 7:39 mark of the first half, 10-5. However, the Crusaders slowly extended their lead as two- and three-goal runs were stopped by Lafayette scores and Holy Cross took its largest lead with 9:33 to play, 17-7.

Three more goals from each side finished off the game as Holy Cross traveled back to Worcester, Mass. with its first Patriot League win. The Leopards fall to 5-2 on the year and 0-1 in League play.

Lafayette is back in action on Wednesday as it hosts Wagner at Rappolt Field at 7 p.m.
