Chargers' Well-rounded Attack Downs Eagles
NEW LONDON, N.H. The Green Mountain College women's lacrosse team was defeated by Colby-Sawyer 19-7 in a North Atlantic Conference (NAC) contest Wednesday afternoon.
The Chargers improve to 6-7 overall and 4-1 in the conference while the Eagles drop to 2-8 overall and 0-4 in the NAC.

Green Mountain was led by the NAC's leading scorer, junior Johanna Douglas (Essex, Conn.). She scored four goals on six shots. Senior Bryanna Astor (Milltown, N.J.) scored twice and junior Corinne Colpitts (Groveland, Mass.) contributed one goal.
The Chargers jumped out to a 5-0 lead 10 minutes into the game, forcing the Eagles to call a timeout. Green Mountain then scored the next two goals to cut the deficit to 5-2.
Colby-Sawyer responded with a pair of goals over the next four minutes to make it 7-2. The Eagles would score four more times in the first half, but the Chargers would counter with seven goals in that span, resulting in a 14-6 halftime lead.
The teams traded the first two goals of the second frame, but Colby-Sawyer scored the game's final four goals en route to the 19-7 win.
Freshman Karley Hamilton earned the victory after working the first 30 minutes of the game. Freshman Jodi Dumayne played the second half and made two saves. Eagles' goalie Virginia Anderson (Silver Spring, Md.) had 14 saves in the loss.
