MOUNT VERNON The Cornell women's lacrosse team dropped a Midwest Women's Lacrosse Conference match Saturday afternoon 18-9 to Augsburg at Ash Park Stadium.

The Rams (2-13 overall, 1-9 MWLC) came out firing, opening up a 4-2 lead after Vaughn Zittle (SO/Washington, D.C.)'s first goal of the day near the halfway point of the first half.

It was then the Auggies (11-5 overall, 7-3 MWLC) who had the hot crosse, going on an 8-0 scoring run to take a 10-4 lead. Just when everyone thought the first half was over, Zittle took the draw control all the way to the net, scoring her second goal as the first half expired.

In the second half, Augsburg continued with their momentum, with their biggest lead of the game coming at the 10 minutes remaining mark.

Cornell however finished strong, going on a run of their own led by Caitlyn St. Marie (JR/Minooka, Ill.)'s two goals. Brittney Starks (FR/Steamboat Springs, Colo.) also connected on a shot, while Lexi Dettbarn (SO/Monona, Iowa) rounded out the game's scoring with a free-position goal.

Sydney Cooper (JR/Morton, Ill.) added one more tally to her season goal total, now at 33, and pitched in one assist. Christy Ralston (SO/Savanna, Ill.) also provided a helper.

Zittle collected a team-high four draw controls. Barbie Becker (FR/Auburn, Wash.) led the Rams with four ground balls.

On the day, the Auggies outshot Cornell 37-21, and collected 10 more draw controls.

Hollie Force (SO/Washington, Mo.) (2-12) went the full 60 minutes in Rams cage, stopping nine shots in the loss.
