Women’s Lacrosse Wins Dramatic Victory Over E-town

Alexa Fitzgerald

Drew’s Women’s Lacrosse Team traveled to Elizabethtown College on Saturday, April 8, for a Landmark Conference matchup. After trailing 9-2 for the majority of the first half, the Rangers managed to tie it with 20 seconds left to go into halftime and then continued to outscore the Blue Jays in the second half, securing a 19-16 come-from-behind victory.  

Allie DiDario (‘20), Mia Campanale (‘19) and Jenna Morelli (‘20) paced the Rangers for the day. DiDario netted the first goal of the game before the Rangers trailed, then scored the equalizer going into half time and added two more before the final buzzer. She also recorded an assist, eight draw controls, two ground balls and two caused turnovers. Campanale tallied four goals, two assists and three ground balls.

Meanwhile, Morelli finished with four goals, three ground balls and two caused turnovers, before she was forced from the match with a fractured tibia and fibula and torn tendons in her ankle.

The Rangers have been plagued with injuries all season. First goalkeeper Bella Kudas (‘20) returned with a concussion that has kept her out of play, with an additional torn meniscus and an ACL sprain she suffered in practice keeping her sidelined for the remained of the season. Next, the Rangers lost senior captain Nicole Kinney (‘18) to an ACL tear in the first game of the season against DeSales.

The Rangers will return home to Ranger Stadium for the only time in a five-game stretch on Saturday, April 14, when they take on Landmark opponent Moravian at 12 p.m.
