The Lady Lions’ premier lacrosse season is underway with a solid win this past Wednesday night at the Walker Athletic Complex on Piedmont’s campus. The Lady Lions faced Agnes Scott in their first game in Piedmont history. 

The game was off to a quick start when Agnes Scott scored in the first forty-seven seconds of the game. 

What seemed like a long night ahead for the Lady Lions quickly turned around when the Lions were able to come back with five goals within those next ten minutes. These goals were scored by Alexis Narducci, Cahner Manns, two by Megan McDowell, and another by Narducci. 

The Scotties came back with another goal to make it 5-2 with 15:25 left in the first half. 

To finish out the half, the Lady Lions persevered to score another six goals and conceded only one to the Scotties to make it 11-3. Two of these goals scored by Narducci, two by Maggie McDaniel, another by McDowell, and one by Ashton Nash. 

f, McDowell scored again within eighteen seconds of the whistle. 

This was followed by seven more goals by the Lions and one more to the Scotties. 

The Lions’ goals were scored by Narducci, two by McDaniel, another by McDowell, one by Victoria Petrassi, another by Manns, and the last by Samantha Vanover. 

The final score of the game was 19-4 to record a victory for the Lady Lions in their first game in Piedmont history. 

After the game the Lady Lions could barely contain their excitement as they greeted fans and family at the top of the stairs.

“The team as a whole was as ready as we could have been. We were lead by great captains and awesome coaches,” said Vanover. 

The Lady Lions knew that they had made history. There was an air of accomplishment and knowledge that this had just set the stage for the future of the program. 

Alexis Narducci said, “We did very well considering we are a first year team and they [Agnes Scott] have been an established program. The win is motivational for us.” 

The Lady Lions were led by McDowell and Narducci each with five points, followed by McDaniel with four points, Manns with two points, and one point each for Petrassi, Vanover, and Nash. 

Narducci later expressed her excitement and said, “I scored the first goal in Piedmont women’s lacrosse history which was pretty cool.”

The Lady Lions face Oglethorpe University at the Walker Athletic Complex here at Piedmont College on Feb. 27 at 7 pm.
