BANNER ELK, N.C. – The Lees-McRae College women's lacrosse team dropped a close 7-5 decision to North Greenville Saturday afternoon at Tate Field. The loss moves LMC's record to 3-6 on the season and 2-5 in Conference Carolinas action.
Saturday's contest was one of runs. The Crusaders scored the first two goals of the game before the Bobcats rattled off three straight to take a 3-2 lead with just over 12 minutes to play in the opening half. NGU would rally, however, to regain the lead and led LMC 5-3 at the half. The Crusaders and Bobcats played an even second half as both teams added two more goals leading to NGU holding on for the 7-5 victory.
Peyton LeCompte led LMC with three goals on Saturday. Senior Callie Gregg accounted for the other two goals for the Bobcats in the contest. Tiffany Laster led LMC with a pair of assists, while Sara Henderson chipped in an assist of her own to round out the scoring for the Bobcats.
Dayna Decesare took the loss in net for the Bobcats, which dropped her record to 3-6. Decesare made six saves in 13 opportunities Saturday afternoon.
Lees-McRae will return to action Tuesday as it will begin a three-game road swing with a trip to Limestone. That game is scheduled to get underway at 7 p.m.
