MONMOUTH, Ill.  Cornell women's lacrosse team fell to Monmouth College Saturday afternoon 17-14, in a conference matchup at Zorn Stadium.

Sydney Cooper (JR/Morton, Ill.) put up six goals on the day for the Rams, but Monmouth's Kara-Jade Gordon had eight of her own to lead the Scots.

The Rams (2-12 overall, 1-8 MWLC) jumped out to an early 3-0 lead after Cooper's two goals and Caitlyn St. Marie (JR/Minooka, Ill.)'s one. Less than two minutes later Monmouth (1-12 overall, 1-8 MWLC) evened up the score 3-3.

With the Rams down 10-5 late in the first half, Cooper put up two more goals to shrink the Scots lead and trail only 10-7 at the half.

In the second half, the Rams were down 15-9 with 17:09 remaining until Barbie Becker (FR/Auburn, Wash.), Nalani Amsden (SO/Ripon, Wis.), Brittney Starks (FR/Steamboat Springs, Colo.), St. Marie, and Cooper each had a goal.

Amsden capitalized on a free-position shot at the 4:31 mark, but the Rams were unable to get any more until Stark's strike with 14 seconds remaining.

On the day the teams were close statistically, with the lone difference of the Rams completing 12-of-22 clears while the Scots completed 8-of-10.

Lexi Dettbarn (SO/Monona, Iowa) accounted for five of the Rams 20 ground balls, while Becker had four.

Hollie Force (SO/Washington, Mo.) (2-11) took the loss in cage for the Rams, collecting seven saves over the full 60 minutes.

Coming up – Cornell will welcome Augsburg College (10-4 overall, 6-2 MWLC) to town on April 22 for their final home match of the season. Start time is slated for 2:00 p.m.
