Lady Leopards Season Comes to Rough End at Kent Roosevelt – Girls Lacrosse

Kent Roosevelt 17, Louisville 10

The 9th Seed Louisville Leopards fell to the host 8th Seed Kent Roosevelt Rough Riders 17-10 in the Division II, Region 6 Qualifying Round of the Grove Appliance Alliance Ohio AdOHSAA Girls Lacrosse Tournament Wednesday Evening at Stanton Field. The loss ends the Leopards undefeated run as they finish 12-1 for the 2017 campaign.

Alexa Oberster recorded a hat trick, had an assist, and caused 2 turnovers on defense to lead the Leopards. Haley Black and Mandy Wesely also added 2 goals each for Louisville.

The Lady Leopards never led in the game as the Rough Riders galloped to an early lead. It took Kent Roosevelt’s Mary Creech just 19 seconds to find the net on the first of her two goals scored in the game. Louisville answered back 17 seconds later when Wesely scored on a free shot to knot the game at 1-1. 

Three different Rough Riders scored the next three goals to put Kent ahead 4-1. Next, Oberster assisted Black on a score and tallied a goal herself to cut the deficit to 4-3.

The Lady Riders took over after that by scoring 6 of the next 7 goals to put them ahead 10-4 at halftime. The lone Leopard score came on a steal and Leopard Head Long Sleeve Blue Shirt - Under Armor - Beatty's Sports Spring 2017score by Marissa Vick. Kent Roosevelt topped that sequence with an 8-1 run in the second half to pull ahead 17-6.

The rest of the game was academic, but there was no quit in the Lady Leopards. Louisville scored the final four goals of the game over the last 5:09 to finalize the score at 17-10. Katie Hollifield and Kloe Mercorelli were among the Leopards second half goal scorers along with the aforementioned Black, Oberster, and Wesely. 

The Rough Riders were led by Gina Rock who scored a game-high 5 goals and Renee Slattery who finished with a hat trick. Creech, Maggie Ferrara, and Katie Kingsley also added 2 scores each.
