Loggers Stumble In Second Half At Chapman

ORANGE, Calif. – A 12-0 run in the second half all but sealed the deal as the Puget Sound women's lacrosse team fell 22-7 to Chapman on Monday. Julia Schulman scored six of the Loggers seven goals, giving her 13 goals in the last two games.

Schulman's six goals run her total to 23 for the year. She is just three goals away from becoming the Loggers all-time leading scorer and four points away from breaking the all-time points record.

Unfortunately for the Loggers (2-3), Schulman was the only one finding the back of the net at Chapman as the rest of the team combined for just one goal on 17 shots. Rachael Silva scored the Loggers other goal.

Chapman (8-2) scored the first three goals of the game and never looked back as it led the entire way. Schulman kept the Loggers within one with her first four goals coming in the first 20 minutes. The final 10 minutes of the opening half belonged to the Panthers as they built a 9-5 lead by halftime.

Silva scored her goal to open the second half scoring but the Panthers embarked on a 12-0 run in response to blow the game wide open.

Kelsey Mackin scored seven goals to lead the Panthers while Shelley LaMotte and Kylee Moore each added in three goals.

The Loggers wrap up their southern California swing tomorrow at Pomona-Pitzer at 11 a.m.
