(CHESTERTOWN, Md.) – The Dickinson women's lacrosse team suffered a 13-10 setback at Washington College in the season finale on Saturday.

The Shorewomen jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the opening five minutes. Erika Bloes (Riverside, Conn./Greenwich) and Maddy Gesner (West Newton, Mass./Kimball Union Academy) scored back-to-back to break up the run.

Liv Yeagle (Collegeville, Pa./Spring-Ford) and Emma Godfrey (Denver, Colo./Cherry Creek) traded scores with Washington to make the score, 5-4, with just over eight minutes to play in the half.

The Shorewomen scored twice before Bloes found the net in the final minute to move the score to 7-5 at the break.

Godfrey finished an assist from Laurie Travaglini (Darien, Conn./Darien) early in the second before Colleen Keefe netted a natural hat-trick to give Washington an 11-6 advantage.

Travaglini dished out another, finding Ashley Fearey (Towson, Md./Bryn Mawr) at the 12:56 mark.

The Red Devils strung together three straight goals with Godfrey finishing an assist from Travaglini and Gesner and Katherine Kerin (Franklin Lakes, N.J./Indian Hill) adding goals to pull Dickinson within two at the 1:53 mark.

Washington tacked on one more for the final of 13-10.

Godfrey led the attack with three goals while Bloes and Gesner each scored twice. Tavaglini added three assists to go with seven draw controls, three ground balls and a pair of caused turnovers.

Greta Holt (Alexandria, Va./Episcopal) controlled four draws while Gesner pulled down four as well. First-year goaltender Ella Marks (Littleton, Colo./Colorado Academy) and Avery Priest (San Rafael, Calif./St. Ignatius Prep) combined for three saves on the day.

The Red Devils finish 2-4 overall and 2-3 in the Centennial Conference.

The Red Devil women's lacrosse team dedicated today's game to healthy relationships. Funds raised in support of this cause will be donated to the One Love Foundation.
