CUW Drops Home Opener to Albion
It was a historic Saturday (yet extremely cold) afternoon on the Mequon campus, as the Concordia Women's Lacrosse team hosted their first ever match at Fitting Field, falling 10-6 to Albion College in the Midwest Women's Lacrosse Conference opener.
Falling behind 1-0 on a goal just six seconds in, the Falcons battled back down 1-0, 2-1, 3-2 and 5-3, evening the game at 5-5 by halftime. However, the Britons made some halftime adjustments and came out and scored five unanswered goals in the second half to take complete control.
Once again CUW was led by the speed of Sam Meuwissen, who scored four goals and has now tallied nine of the team's 13 scores in their first five games. Erin Lau notched her second goal of the season and Marie Melton notched her first in the loss.
Coming in with four goals in three games, Melissa DiRado led the way for Albion with six of their 10 goals. The Britons, who were outshot 26-21, also received goals from Jaylin Feldt, Lindsey Sowa, Lisa Davignon and Kon Salkeld.
The Falcons, now 0-5 overall and 0-1 in league play, look to pick up their first victory on Sunday morning at 11am, hosting the conference's preseason favorite Adrian College.
