ALLIANCE, Ohio – Albion College had not seen an opponent with the talent of Catholic University until the teams met Saturday in the first round of the NCAA Division III Women's Lacrosse Championship.
Catholic defeated Albion, 19-5, as the Britons finished the season with a 14-5 record.
Goalkeeper Alexis Robinson made several impressive saves in the first half, and Jenina Villabroza did likewise in the second half, but the pressure Catholic displayed on the ride was just as impressive as Albion had trouble advancing the ball to the attacking end of the field.
Robinson stopped half of the shots she faced, making 15 saves. Villabroza was credited with stopping seven of the 11 shots she faced.
Albion made the most of its offensive opportunities; Chrystelle Lopez, Darcy Muns, Destiny Okon, Carly Schwarz, and Abby Sheklow scored goals for the Britons.
