Raiders score season-low as Bloomsburg wallops SU.

On a day where the seniors were supposed to be honored, the Shippensburg University lacrosse team sent them out in an ungraceful way as Bloomsburg University walloped the Raiders 16–4 on Saturday afternoon at David See Field.

SU picked up the early lead at the 24:55 mark in the first half when Liz French buried the ball into the back of the net, capitalizing on the assist from Lindsey Kennedy. After the goal, the game quickly turned toward BU for the advantage.

BU scored five unanswered goals against the Raiders throughout the next 15 minutes — four of which were unassisted goals.

SU picked up its second goal of the half on an unassisted goal from Courtney Kennedy with five minutes left in the first half. BU tacked on two more goals to close out the half, bringing the score to 7–2.

SU tried to regain momentum as it scored five minutes into the second half, but BU quickly negated the momentum by scoring four more unanswered goals.

The Raiders scored another goal halfway through the second half, but the Huskies again added five straight unassisted goals to close out the game.

SU’s next game is on April 19 at Mercyhurst University.
