MEQUON, Wis. – Robert Morris University went on an 8-3 scoring run to end the first half before earning a 16-9 non-conference women's lacrosse victory over Concordia University Wisconsin on Thursday at Fitting Field.
Sophomore Hannah Redden (Libertyville, Ill.) was the offensive leader for the Falcons tying a career high with three goals. She also had a career-best seven shots on goal, four ground balls and three caused turnovers.
The five-goal deficit at the intermission was too much to overcome for CUW (2-3), as it was outshot on goal (32-25) and lost the battle for ground balls (42-32). RMU extended its winning streak to nine games after twice holding an eight-goal advantage.
The Eagles won the skirmish for draw control wins in the first half (11-5) and were efficient on the offensive end of the field during the second half. RMU (11-2) had control of the ball for the majority of the final 30 minutes, as CUW committed more turnovers than shots it took on goal.
CUW will now play back-to-back non-conference games on Saturday and Sunday to complete a three-game stretch away from conference play. Saturday's contest at the University of Dubuque will start at 1 p.m., while Sunday's matchup at Loras College will start at 2 p.m.
