NASHUA, NH -- An undermanned Gators club fell at Rivier, 13-8, Monday night in Great Northeast Athletic Conference lacrosse play.
Freshman goalkeeper Colleen Tencza made a game- and career-high 18 saves. Sophomore Beth Deegan led the Gators with four goals, and freshman Myrell Redmond followed with three goals.
"We played really, really well," said Pine Manor head coach Jess Blair, whose team utilized only 10 players. "We competed. We played lacrosse."
After the Raiders took a 5-1 lead, an unassisted Deegan goal snapped a string of three straight Rivier scores. Redmond's first goal pulled the Gators to within 6-3 in the final 2:00 of the first half. The Raiders answered with goals from Sara Wilson and Brittany Gunn in the last minute of the half to take an 8-3 lead into the locker room.
An Alyssa Renaud goal just under four minutes into the half opened the scoring in the second, and the teams them alternated goals for the next 20 minutes, when Bridget Emerson's second score made it a 13-6 game. Pine Manor tacked on two goals in the final 5:19 in the 13-8 defeat.
Deegan's four goals came on seven shots. Redmond's career-high three goals extends her streak to seven consecutive games with a goal to start her career.
Pine Manor travels to Elms on Wednesday night at 7 p.m.
