Britons Complete Spring Break In Tennessee

SEWANEE, Tenn. - Albion College controlled the draw and pounced on ground balls for the first half, but it could not keep up the pace in the second half in a 14-3 loss to Sewanee.

Albion controlled eight of the nine draws in the first half and grabbed 12 of its 20 ground balls in the first half.

Cait Gaitley and Cassandra Reuschlein scored on free position shots and Darcy Muns added a free position goal as Albion forged a 3-3 tie midway through the first half.

Alden Woolford and Molly Elkins scored in the final 11 minutes as Sewanee gained a 5-3 halftime lead.

Meredith Sackett scored three times, Catherine Crigler produced two goals and Bridget McConville and Brooke Winfield struck for their second goals of the day in the second half to help Sewanee pull away.

"We worked hard for about 30 minutes, and we could see that in the loose ball stats," Head Coach Shanta Loecker said. "We weren't able to keep up our level of play up for the full 60 minutes. We're still working on improving our composure and pacing."

Defender Taylor Nelson controlled four draws and scooped up three ground balls for Albion.  Shannon Kahl caused three turnovers and scooped three ground balls, Lauren Wiegand also finished with three ground balls, and Ariella Ruiz caused three turnovers, won two draw controls and scooped two ground balls.

Goalkeeper Jenina Villabroza collected 15 saves, caused two turnovers and was credited with five ground balls.

The Britons have one more road trip – a March 18 date at Augustana (Ill.) College – before making its home debut March 26 against Franklin University.
