The UOIT women’s lacrosse team played with a lot more confidence on Sept. 25 at York University compared to a week prior.
The Ridgebacks opened the day with a close 6-5 loss to the hosting York Lions, followed by a 10-5 defeat to the University of Toronto. UOIT cut their goal differential by 12 against the Varsity Blues compared to their match at the Civic Sept. 18.
UOIT’s offence was spread out as Elyse Lockhart was the only multi-goal scorer with two. Julia Vinkovic, Kristin Lemmon, and Holly Collins, all had goals, with Collins strike tying the game up at 5-5 with 11 minutes to go.
Goaltender Cierra Maingot made several key stops for UOIT as the teams were evenly matched in play and on the scoreboard throughout the game.
UOIT will have two tough matches on Oct. 1 in Toronto when they take on the Trent Excalibur and Queen’s Gaels.
