PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – Senior attack Addie Godfrey put together yet another six-goal performance, but this time it wasn’t enough as Lafayette women’s lacrosse suffered its first loss of the season on Saturday afternoon at the hands of Temple in Philadelphia, Pa., 15-12.

Junior midfielder Ana White tallied three goals and added four draw controls to her new Patriot League career-record mark. Classmate Laura Kleiber added two scores, while senior captain Cammie Linville notched a tally of her own in the loss.

The Leopards were outshot 31-24 in the contest and picked up 14 groundballs compared to Temple’s 17. The Owls also held the edge in draw controls (16-13) and turnovers with 10 committed to Lafayette’s 13.

Kellee Pace led the way for Temple with four goals on six shots, while Jaymie Tabor added three, and Stephany Parcell and Rachel Schwaab each notched two apiece.

The Leopards struck first, notching three tallies in the opening 10 minutes on two goals from Godfrey and one off the stick of White to take the early 3-0 lead. Temple responded with three of its own, though, as Tabor, Pace and Kelly Syphard notched tallies to tie the game at three with 12:42 remaining in the first half of play.

Over the next three minutes, goals from Godfrey and White sandwiched a Temple tally from Pace to give the Leopards the 5-4 lead. However, Temple ripped off five straight, answered by three Leopard scores to end the first half with the Owls in front by a narrow margin, 9-8.

White tallied her 11th of the year just 49 seconds into the second stanza to tie the game at nine apiece. Temple’s Tabor slipped one into the back of the net at the 27:49 mark to put Temple on top again, but again the Leopards responded with one apiece from Kleiber and Godfrey to put Lafayette up, 11-10, with 25:04 to play.

Unfortunately for the Maroon and White, they would only get one goal in the final 25:04 as Temple rallied off five of the next six with three in the final 7:28 to put the game in its favor with a final of 15-12.

The Leopards return home on Tuesday for a matchup with Monmouth at 7 p.m. inside Fisher Stadium.
