Lacrosse falls at home

The Northern Michigan Women’s Lacrosse team fell to the University of Indianapolis by a score of 26-3 at the Superior Dome last Sunday. Freshman Graison Ringlever added two more goals to her total putting her at 22 points on the season.

The Greyhounds started the game out with four unanswered goals until senior attacker Blair Osgood put the Wildcats on the board to make it a 4-1 game at the 23:14 mark of the first half. Shortly after the Greyhounds scored two more goals coming less than a minute apart before Ringlever notched her first of the game at 20:15 to make it 6-2.

The Greyhounds scored nine unanswered goals after the Ringlever tally to make it a wide margin of 15-2 at the half.

Ringlever added her secondre-Lacrosse goal of the game at 15:20 of the second half to give the Wildcats three, but it was all Greyhounds after that. Anna Rulapaugh and Hana Priddy led the way for Indianapolis, scoring five goals each and helping them improve to 9-4 on the season.
