Wildcat Lacrosse Dominates Cincinnati on Senior Day

by | Mar 1, 2022

A little bit, no a lot of rain, couldn’t dampen the Wildcats effort to defeat the Bearcats.


DAVIDSON, N.C. – The Davidson lacrosse team dominated Cincinnati for 60 minutes on Sunday afternoon, coming out on top with a 15-4 non-conference victory on Senior Day.

Senior keeper Katy Morris earned the win in cage, making eight saves and allowing just two goals while junior Grace Fahey led the way offensively, matching her career-high with five goals. Seniors Emily Weld and Lauren Arkell had strong outings as well, tallying three points apiece.

The ‘Cats jumped out to a strong start and never looked back, opening up on a four-goal tear with scores from Weld, Fahey and Erin Cooke. The Bearcats responded with their first goal of the day with just 10 seconds left in the first, while rookie Josie Lambert added one more goal for Davidson before halftime, as the Wildcats led 5-1 going into the break.

Although Cincinnati scored at the start of the third quarter, the Wildcats responded with an explosive eight-point frame. Molly Murphy started off the scoring brigade, followed by a top-shelf buzzer from Fahey. Jane DiGregorio and Weld would score back-to-back goals within two minutes of each other, while senior Emma Johnson closed out the quarter to push Davidson’s lead up to 11 goals, 13-2.

Cincinnati would strike twice more before the final buzzer sounded, but Fahey also had two more goals up her sleeve that put the game out of reach for good.

Up Next
The Wildcats will return to action on Saturday, March 5 to take on the Winthrop Eagles in the Crown Lacrosse Classic. Opening draw is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. at American Legion Memorial Stadium in Charlotte, N.C.
