LEWISTON — Junior Moriah Greenstein scored four goals and senior Emma Getsinger added three more as the Bates women’s lacrosse team downed Connecticut College 15-8 Saturday in NESCAC action at Garcelon Field.

Four players scored multiple goals for the Bobcats (6-7, 2-6 NESCAC). Lacey Hale led the Camels (2-8, 0-6) with two goals.

The game was Bates’ last at home this season. The Bobcats honored seniors Aly Dowey, Kathy Yannopoulos, Jill Conway, and Getsinger. All four players started the game, in their last appearance at Garcelon Field.

Conway, who split time in net with Hannah Jeffrey, recorded two saves in her final home appearance, while Jeffrey notched seven saves in the game.

The Bobcats got on the board first when Getsinger scored on the pass from junior Suzannah Smith of Brunswick. The Camels answered with two quick scores, the first an unassisted shot from Madison Barker to tie the game, and the second, an unassisted tally from Annie Cornbrooks to put Connecticut College on top.

The Bobcats wasted little time tying things up. Junior Emma Noto tied the game 25 seconds later on the pass from Greenstein. Greenstein, who was tied for the lead in points in the NESCAC, gave Bates a lead they would never relinquish with an unassisted score at the 21:28 mark.

Bates added to that lead when Greenstein found sophomore Drew Barry of Portland for her first career goal to put the Bobcats up by a pair. Tina Balzotti pulled the Camels within one on an unassisted goal at the 17:39 mark.

The Bobcats ended the half with six consecutive goals, including two from freshman Camille Belletete.

The teams traded goals, netting five each in the second half as Bates maintained its seven-goal lead through the end of the game.

Bates was three for six on free position shots, and won the battle of draw controls, 17-8. The Camels had the slight advantage on ground balls, 16-13.

The Bobcats return to action April 11 at Middlebury College in Vermont.
