More of the same a day later for FLC

Skyhawks play a lot of defense in a 22-8 lacrosse loss Saturday at Regis

The Fort Lewis College women’s lacrosse team may have enjoyed playing defense Saturday, but that didn’t necessarily play to the Skyhawks’ advantage.

Regis beat Fort Lewis 22-8 in what FLC head coach Kelsey MacDonald called a “rough game.”

“We were in the game for about 15 minutes, and then they just started taking over the game and capitalizing on our mistakes,” she said.

MacDonald said the Skyhawks made a habit of turning the ball over in their attacking zone, having taken a single shot, then dropping back to play defense again.

“We enjoyed playing defense (Saturday), I guess,” said MacDonald, who had a similar refrain after Friday’s 14-11 loss to Grand Valley State.

The Rangers outshot the Skyhawks 33-19 in the Western Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association match.

Genna Waugh had seven saves and 15 goals against, and Shelby Wichkoski had zero saves and seven goals against.

Abby Kvidera scored three FLC goals, Kylie Smith scored three, and Ally Kvidera and Katherine Dunn each added one. Jessica Norby had one assist.

The Kvidera twins are the back-to-back defending WILA offensive players of the week. Waugh is the defending WILA defensive player of the week.

FLC (4-4, 2-1 WILA) will play at new WILA member Lindenwood on Friday in St. Louis.
