WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - The second-ranked Salisbury women's lacrosse team won a top-ten battle over eighth-ranked Bowdoin, 15-8, in a match played in Florida on Monday. The Polar Bears drop their first game of the season and fall to 3-1 overall. Salisbury, who has played ten games already this spring, improves to 10-0.
The Gulls sailed out to a 6-1 lead in the opening 12 minutes before a Bowdoin run cut into their advantage. Lindsay McNamara scored twice in a 3-0 Polar Bear surge that made it a 6-4 Salisbury lead. But the Gulls responded with a 6-1 spurt to end the half and took a 12-5 lead into the break. The teams both scored three times in the second half.
Bowdoin out-shot Salisbury, and got two goals apiece from McNamara, Lyndsey Colburn and Bobbi Dennison. Steph Collins-Finn stopped six shots in defeat.
