Lee Lacrosse Wins 17-2 Over Converse

Monday, March 8, 2021
The Lee women's lacrosse team made it three wins in a row on Monday night as it rolled to a 17-2 victory over Converse College.

The Lady Flames (3-2) have now won their last two matches by a combined score of 35-4. Converse falls to 1-1 on the year. 

Shayna Ryan led Lee with six points as she dished off four assists and scored two goals to go along with three ground balls. Kaylyn Dillon, Avery Schenk, and Brittney White all registered hat tricks with three goals each.

The Lady Flames held a 12-0 advantage at halftime and scored the first 15 goals before Converse finally got on the board with 13:54 remaining in the second half.
The Lee offense dominated the stat line outshooting the Valkyries 32-7 and 28-5 in shots on goal.

Lee held a 17-4 advantage on draw controls led by eight from White, who now sits at fourth in the nation in draw controls per game at 8.75. Ryan followed with five and Shannon Galloway added four.

"We are really emphasizing team effort, and we had a total team effort today.  Once again, our hard work on draw controls helped us maintain possession through the game.  With Brittney White getting 8 draw controls, Shayna Ryan getting 5, and Shannon Galloway picking up 4, we were able to control possession.  Shayna Ryan also contributed to our offense with 2 goals and 4 assists.  Freshman Avery Schenk picked up three goals in a season high for her," said Lee head coach Derrel Martin.

Freshman Kaleigh Bernard had three saves and surrendered just two goals for the Lady Flames to improve to 2-1. Madalynn Brunner registered 11 saves in goal for Converse. 

"Our defense turned in a stellar effort by holding Converse to two goals over the course of the game and kept the pressure on them throughout.  Jaylee Giffin caused two turnovers and was able to start many of our transitions to offense," added Martin. "Both of our goalies, Kayleigh Bernard and Caleigh Smith had a great day in goal with each getting two saves and allowing only one goal apiece.

The Lady Flames will look to make it four wins in a row on Sunday as they host the Lewis University Flyers on Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. at the Multi-Sport Complex. 

"After dropping our first two games, we are excited to be on the winning side of things.  The team is having fun, and it is showing on the field.  It was this time last year that we had gelled as a team and then COVID shut everything down, so we are treasuring each time on the field," concluded Martin.
