OTTAWA, Kan. – Midland University’s women’s lacrosse team rallied from a two goal deficit over the last seven minutes to defeat Ottawa University, 11-10, on Sunday afternoon. Playing in snow flurries throughout most of the game, the Warriors rallied to pick up their second KCAC win of the season. They are now 2-3 in the conference and 3-5 overall. Ottawa falls to 5-5 (3-2 KCAC) with the loss.
Emma Guerra had 11 saves in net for the Warriors. She stopped a pair of free position shots in the final ten seconds to seal the win for Midland.
Offensively, Riley Yanek led the way with three goals on five shot attempts. Teammates Jada Jordan, Megan Collins, and Masey Jay all added two goals each as well.
Collins had nine shot attempts with eight on goal while Jay had eight attempts with five on target. As a hole, Midland outshot Ottawa 34-32 with a 25-21 advantage of shots on goal.
The Warriors were going against a familiar face on the opposing sideline as they were facing their former coach, Sam Aucoin, who took the Ottawa job in early December.
Midland will be at home for their next two contests as they host No. 10 Benedictine on Saturday, April 14th and the University of Dallas on April 15th. Both games will be played at Heedum Field in Fremont, Nebraska with Saturday’s game beginning at 1:00 p.m. and Sunday’s start slated for 12:00 p.m. Before Sunday’s game Midland will honor their 2018 senior class.
