Kahli Evans Makes Season-Best 19 Saves in Lacrosse's Loss to Dowling

Flushing, N.Y. - At first glance, the 13-4 final score in the Queens College lacrosse loss to Dowling on Saturday would seem like a rout, but the game was actually played a lot closer than the score indicated, thanks, in large part to the stellar play of goalie Kahli Evans, who turned aside 19 saves.  She also had a game-high six ground balls.
 

Dowling got on the board first by scoring two goals in the game's first five minutes.  Queens answered back less than two minutes later when Gabby Casanova found Taylor Martello to half the Golden Lions lead. Dowling would score twice more before Martello scored again, and the Knights trailed at the half, 6-2.

 

The Golden Lions scored the first two markers of the second half to grab an 8-2 advantage, but QC countered with a pair of their own when Alyssa McCormick scored from the free position and later took a pass from Casanova to account for the man-up goal.  Queens trailed 8-4 with just over 15 minutes remaining.  Dowling went on to win, 13-4.

 

The Queens College lacrosse team returns to action on Friday, April 11, when they host Southern Connecticut State at 4:00 PM.
