Sixth-ranked Gettysburg notches 11-8 win over McDaniel

WESTMINSTER, Md. – Jessica Crane and Lauren Woodman each recorded three goals to lead No. 6 Gettysburg to an 11-8 victory over McDaniel in Centennial Conference (CC) women’s lacrosse action on Tuesday.

            Brittany Baer (Westminster, Md./Westminster) paced the Green Terror (6-4, 2-2 CC) with six of the team’s eight goals, bringing her season total to a CC-high 46 markers.
            After falling behind 2-1 nearly 10 and a half minutes into the game, the Bullets (9-0, 4-0 CC) reeled off the next four tallies to key their 11th consecutive win over McDaniel.
            Baer opened the scoring 6:14 into the game before Crane evened the game 3 minutes, 9 seconds later.
            Brittany Lines (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) gave the Green Terror its final lead at the 19:37 mark before Hollis Stahl opened the four-goal flurry with a free-position goal.
            Three straight Woodman goals stretched the lead to 5-2 with 8:42 remaining in the first half before Baer halted the stretch just over a minute later.
            Kelly Scheler (Forest Hill, Md./C. Milton Wright) pulled the hosts within one with 59 seconds remaining in the first half but Lexie Hearn stretched the lead back to two with four seconds on the first-half clock.
            Baer once again made it a one-goal game 3:04 after the break but Crane and Stahl went back-to-back to open up a three-goal cushion for the second time.
            Baer finished one of two Lindsey McDonald (Germantown, Md./Damascus) assists but Baer traded goals with three different Gettysburg players over the final 20:56 to set the final margin.
