On April 8th, Women's Club Lacrosse played at Fairfield University for a rematch against our cross town rivals. Unfortunately, the Pioneers lost to the Stags but the team played big in the last half, generating another 3 goals. Both CC Calabrese & Liv Bryant had 2 goals each. The final score was 13-5. Key player of the game goes to Abby "DUKE" Hoey, a freshman who was a standout defender for the pioneers this game. DUKE was a key player on transitions as well as using her speed to take the ball right through the midfield. The SHU Women's Club Lacrosse team would like to thank all of fans and supports who followed us throughout our spring season. The Pioneers are looking forward to this weekend as we head to the NEWLL Regional Tournament in Sudbury, MA.
