The Edinboro women’s lacrosse team dropped their second straight game, this time in a score of 11-4, against PSAC foe Seton Hill on Tuesday. 

Seton Hill jumped out to a lead within minutes and held it, leaving ‘Boro trailing 5-1 going into the half. 

Edinboro’s offense was lacking the presence of Anna Leva, who scored 20 goals in the team’s first four games. Head Lacrosse Coach Jenny Wirth said Leva suffered an injury during Saturday’s PSAC opener at Millersville University. 

“They’re obviously evaluating, but it looks like it might be a long-term [injury] for a little bit, so that’s kind of unfortunate for us to lose our top scorer this early in the season,” she said. 

The Griffins again started the scoring in the second half. Seton Hill added three more goals before ‘Boro could net one. 

Edinboro faced a Seton Hill defense that worked hard to shut down any offensive attack before it could really get started. Edinboro’s defense was quick to challenge the Griffins, but they struggled to keep up with the quickness of Seton Hill. 

Sophie DePalma netted her 18th goal of the season with minutes left and Chido finished Edinboro’s scoring with her third goal of the game to shape the final 11-4 score. 

Wirth said she was happy with her team’s defense, but plans to work on their offense moving forward. 

“Overall, our defense played 10 times better than we’ve been seeing all season, so I was really proud of that,” she said. 

The Scots will be looking for their first PSAC win when they visit East Stroudsburg University on Sunday at 11 a.m.
