DALLAS, Pa.—Eastern Women’s Lacrosse dropped its Freedom Conference matchup on Saturday afternoon, falling to the Misericordia University Cougars.

Eastern freshman Anna Charlebois scored four times and had an assist in the 11-8 loss. Charlebois converted 3-of-4 free-position shots. With 24 goals on 48 shots on goal, Charlebois is the Eagles’ leading scorer this season.

Shannon Wilcox, Caleigh Falco, Angalena Malavenda and Jacquelyn Janda also scored once. Janda, a freshman defensive midfielder, scored her first collegiate goal. Eagles’ head coach Camrin Azzarano praised Janda’s play as of late. “She deserves recognition for stepping up to assist in the midfield,” Azzarano said. “She is providing motivation and leading by example.”

The Cougars doubled the Eagles on draw controls 14-7, with Cougars’ Melina Juliano gathering eight draws. The draw control advantage helped the Cougars establish a 30-20 advantage on shots. Juliano in addition to the eight draw controls, also led the Cougars with five goals.

The Eagles and Cougars traded goals in the beginning of the first half. Eastern took a 4-3 lead with a free-position goal by Malavenda with 8:27 left in the first. To close out the half and start the second half, the Cougars pounced into the lead with four straight goals.

Wilcox brought the Eagles back within two, scoring on an assist from Janda with 24:12 remaining to make it an 8-6 game. After a Cougars’ goal, Janda and Charlebois scored on free-position shots to pull Eastern within one, 8-7 with 17:59 to go. However, the Cougars score three times in just over two minutes to pull away.

Eagles’ freshman goalie Megan McReynolds made 14 saves in the loss, giving her an even 100 saves on the season.

Coach Azzarano said that even with the loss, she thought that the team showed improved in every aspect of the game.

The Eagles have a non-conference game on Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. at home against Elizabethtown College.
