Roanoke, VA - On the coldest day of the season, the Hollins lacrosse team began the first of back-to-back games on Moody Field. McDaniel made the trip from Maryland to face Hollins on Wednesday afternoon. The Green Terror controlled the draw circle throughout much of the matchup and the visitors kept the ball away from the Hollins offense en route to picking up the win, 20-1.
McDaniel netted the first goal of the game just 40 seconds into play. After adding two more scores in the next two minutes, it became clear that the bitter cold temperature wasn't the only hurdle for a Hollins team playing their third straight home game to start the season. The Terror outshot the home team, 21-1, during the first 30 minutes of action and took a sizeable lead into the break. Coming out of the half, Hollins got themselves on the board when Allie Helmbrecht beat the McDaniel keeper to provide the hosts with some much needed offense. However, control would once again swing back in favor of the road team as McDaniel would not allow Hollins to get off another shot the rest of the way.
Helmbrecht scored her 14th goal of the season. Keeper Delaney Waller registered eight saves while picking up a team high four ground balls. Leemu Jackson, three ground balls and two caused turnovers, and Sydney Clark, two ground balls, led the Hollins defense on the afternoon.
Lindsey Farrell, Emily Brownawell, and Tori Arcilesi each scored three times for the Green Terror. Abby Phillips handed out three helpers with Brownwell and Olivia Maenner each picking up four ground balls. Nikki Francis redorded a save and picked up the win in goal.
Hollins will be back in action tomorrow afternoon when they play host to Wilmington (OH) College at 4:00pm.
