Georgia Women's Club Lacrosse Team Ends Invitational on a Mile High Note

On the first two days of the Mile High Invitational, the tenth-ranked Georgia women’s club lacrosse team fell to Ohio State in double-overtime but beat BYU, Michigan, and UC Davis. The Bulldogs wrapped up the Boulder, Colo., tournament with a game against No. 23 Texas on Sunday morning, when the Classic City Canines overcame a slow start to notch a runaway victory.

The Longhorn ladies took a 2-0 lead on the Athenians before senior attack Murphy Ferguson lofted a high pass to fellow senior attack Emma Goodnow for the initial Georgia score. After Texas once again extended its advantage to two goals, junior attack Parisa Ayers tallied back-to-back scores to tie the game at three. Sophomore midfielder Mady Katz gave the Red and Black their first lead on a free position shot, and it was all Georgia from there.

Katz scored again on an open cage, then the ball moved from junior attack Jenna Dreyer to Ayers to classmate Katie Ezell to the back of the net to send the contest to halftime with the Bulldogs up, 6-3. Ezell and Ferguson extended the Athenians’ advantage to 8-3 early in the second half, and a subsequent score by senior middie Lindsay Brinker following a Texas goal made it 9-4 with 15 minutes remaining in the game.

Dreyer found twine on a free position shot, senior midfielder Callie Wheatley fed sophomore middie Arden Birdwell from the right wing, and Brinker hit the hole for the goal that put Georgia out in front by a 12-5 margin. Dreyer closed out the scoring by finding the back of the net with four seconds left, and the Bulldogs came away with the 13-6 victory.

The Georgia women’s club lacrosse team will close out the regular season at home against Emory next Saturday before beginning SWLL Tournament play in Atlanta the following weekend.
