MEQUON, Wis. -- The careers of five seniors came to a close on Sunday afternoon, as Concordia Wisconsin lost an 18-6 decision to MWLC regular season champions Hamline at Fitting Field.
Final Score: Hamline 18, Concordia Wisconsin 6
Location: Fitting Field (Mequon, Wis.)

HOW IT HAPPENED
- The senior class of Lauren Paquin (Waukesha, Wis.), Ellie Woodman (Janesville, Wis.), Kristen Kennedy (London, Ontario), Ashley Solberg (Waukesha, Wis.) and Shannon Carroll (Mundelein, Il.) all wore the Falcons uniform for the final time in their career on a beautiful sunny day.
- After falling behind 5-0, Kennedy and Paquin found the back of the net on successive goals before Paquin scored again with 2:41 before halftime. Hamline led 8-3 at the intermission and was too strong and depth proved to be a factor. The Pipers had 10 players score in the contest.
- Paquin recorded a hat trick and caused four turnovers, while Woodman netted a pair of goals and caused three turnovers herself. Kennedy also had two assists and Carroll caused a pair of turnovers. Solberg recorded a ground ball, draw control win and caused a turnover.
- In goal, freshman Kinsey Weyer (Stillwater, Minn.) made five saves in the first half before sophomore Mallory Gurin (Westfield, Ind.) played the second half and made four saves.
- Sydney Dynneson and Maya Hernandez each had a game-high four goals and Alycia Monserrate Novotny recorded two goals and four assists for Hamline.
- This senior class ended their careers with a 46-25 overall record, including a 37-7 record in MWLC play and a 28-8 mark when playing at Fitting Field. They are the only class to win at least nine conference games in four consecutive seasons.
- Paquin ends as the program's all-time leader in points (277), goals (218), shots (458), shots on goal (335) and tied for free-position goals (31). She is also second in ground balls (200) and caused turnovers (146), tied for second in game-winning goals (six), third in assists (49) and sixth in draw controls (134).
- Woodman concludes her career ranked third in ground balls (179), eight in draw controls (50) and third in caused turnovers (120).
