UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Despite holding a 6-6 tie midway through the first half of play, the Lafayette women’s lacrosse team was outscored by Penn State on Wednesday evening in University Park, Pa., 19-10.

A five-goal run to end the first half and a seven-goal string in the second half proved costly as the Leopards turned out to be overmatched in the comeback effort.

Five Leopards put multiple goals on the scoreboard as senior Jessica Rothstein, junior Ana White, senior Addie Godfrey, junior Laura Kleiber and freshman Carlianne McCabe each netted two scores apiece for Lafayette.

On the other side, the Nitanny Lions’ Maggie McCormick set up everything for the Penn State attack with three goals and four assists for the game. Molly Fernandez also added four goals and an assist for the home side.

Penn State held the advantage in shots (32-18) and draw controls (19-12), while the Leopards and Nittany Lions split in the ground balls category at 19 apiece.

The Leopards’ back-to-back scores from McCabe with 8:48 and 7:50 remaining in the first half were as close as the Leopards would get in the game, tying the score at six apiece. From there, Penn State dominated, scoring five goals to end the first half and sending the game into the locker room with the Nittany Lions up, 11-6.

Coming out in the second, Godfrey notched two tallies to bring the Leopards within three at 11-8 with 28:10 to play. However, Penn State rattled off seven straight to ice the game away and come away with a final of 19-10.

Lafayette heads to Hamilton, N.Y. on Saturday afternoon to take on Colgate for a berth in the Patriot League Tournament at 1 p.m.
