Bradley's Output Not Enough for WildCats

WINCHESTER, VA – Fresh off being named Randolph College women's lacrosse attack player of the year, Hannah Bradley had an outstanding game for the WildCats.  However, the team fell to Shenandoah University, 19-2, on Wednesday in an Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) contest.

The Hornets were able to start the game on a big run, establishing a large lead.  10 minutes in, Katie Jones began to help the 'Cats chip away at the deficit.  She won the draw control and got the ball into the attacking zone.  After several fouls by the hosts, Bradley found herself in possession.  She was fouled on a drive, setting up a free position shot.  She went low and found the back of the net for the goal. 

The WildCats defense did a nice job the rest of the half, as Chelsea Marciniak, Teagan Stanley, and Bradley all forced turnovers.  Despite the work, Shenandoah went into the half with a 13-1 lead.

Randolph came out of the break strong, as Nicole Dorton pulled in the opening draw.  Bradley received the ball and worked her way towards the goal.  She ripped one home for the second of the game.

Chrissy Shackleford came up big over the rest of the half.  She stopped seven shots during the next 17 minutes, keeping the Hornets off the board.  Maddie Peters also forced a big turnover during that time.  However, SU made a final run, and sealed the win.

Shackleford finished with 10 saves overall.  Peters led the team with three ground balls, while Marciniak and Taylor Gamble each picked up two.  Annie McCorry and Brittany Arndt both tallied hat tricks for Shenandoah (5-10 overall, 2-5 ODAC).

Randolph (3-12, 0-7) will close out its season on Saturday.  The WildCats will travel to Washington and Lee University (13-1, 7-0).  The game is slated to begin at 2 p.m., but may start later due to a doubleheader.
