– The St. Bonaventure women’s lacrosse team continued its season in the south taking on first-year program, the University of Florida, where the Bonnies lost 22-11 on Thursday night.

Leading the way for St. Bonaventure on the offensive end was junior Christine Hanley and senior Molly Hastrich tallying three goals each in the loss. Sophomores Daisy Timlin and Danielle Drabin also added two goals apiece in the first frame. Freshman Kellyn Savage tallied her first career goal.

The Gators dominated on the offense, out-shooting the Bonnies 43-21 which included 33 on goal. Florida caused seven of the Brown and White’s 16 total turnovers while only having 10 miscues of its own.

Unfortunately, the Bonnies only hit one more goal in the first half courtesy of Timlin and the Gators took a 15-8 lead into the break.

Florida continued its strong offensive output, going up by nine and essentially closing out the game at 18-9 as the Bonnies could only rally three total goals in the second half.

Senior Tori Waheibi started, picking up the loss, making five saves in 22:08 minutes between the pipes while sophomore Victoria Morgan made six saves, allowing 11 goals in 37:52 minutes of work.
