Generals Upend #16 Cards
LEXINGTON, Va.- Just two shots on goal was the telling stats in Catholic University's (4-2) 2-0 loss to the Washington and Lee Generals (4-1) Friday evening in Lexington, Va.
After a very quiet first half that saw two total shots by CUA and five for the General, Washington and Lee found the back of the cage in the 44th minute. Sallie Armstrong was the goal scorer assisted by Steph Mansey.
The Cardinals mustered just two shots in the second stanza against a stifling General defense. At 68:57 Amy Volkmann knocked in the second score making the final 2-0.
Washington and Lee outshot CUA 9-4 and also held the advantage in penalty corners 5-4. Cardinal keeper Betsy Homan had five saves to W&L's two.
Catholic University will play John's Hopkins on Saturday in Lexington, Va.
