Big Second Half, with Heavy Rain, Sends Bucs to Loss in Southern Trip Finale

March 10, 2016

Birmingham, AL -- The Beloit College Women's Lacrosse team fell victim to a big second half by Birmingham Southern College in a 23-6 loss, the final game of the Bucs' Southern Trip.

The Panthers scored the first seven goals of the game to jump on top early before Libby Storrick got Beloit back in it with five straight goals over a seven-minute span, three of them free position scores.  BSC then scored three times to close out the half for a 10-5 lead at the break.

Birmingham Southern opened the second half with another seven-goal run to push their lead to 17-5.  Midway through the run there was, according to the BSC SID, a massive downpour.  The rain continued through the end of the game.

Tate Mitchell stopped the run at 15:35 with a free position score before the Panthers finished the game with six more scores.

Marie Bonine made 15 saves in goal for Beloit while Storrick had a team-best four ground balls and four caused turnovers to go with her five goals.

The Buccaneers now head back home, with a return to Midwest Women's Lacrosse Conference play on tap Saturday at Benedictine University.  Game time is at 11:00 a.m.
