Patterson Scores Final Three Goals as Warriors Take Down Pilots

Babson Park, FL – The Webber International Women’s Lacrosse team hosted the Bethel University Pilots at the Warrior Turf Field on Friday morning. Late heroics from Kaitlyn Patterson and Bryce Gerber helped the Warriors take down the Pilots in a tight victory 14-13. 

The Warriors would find themselves down early as Bethel was able to find the goal in the first minute. The Pilots would quickly be up 2-0 after winning another draw control. The Warriors were finally able to gain possession and started to take shots at the goalie. Hailey Leavines and Ayame Macedo would be unable to get it past the Pilots goalie at first, and a save would allow Bethel to run down the field and go up 3-0. Webber would finally get on the board from the free position, as Leavines fired a goal on a man-up opportunity. Courtnie Couch and Gerber would both have shots saved by the goalie as Webber headed to the second quarter down 3-1. 

Bethel would get two more quick goals to take a commanding 5-1 lead two minutes into the quarter. Patterson would find herself in the free position and scored to breathe life into the Warrior offense. Natalie Baumgarten found the back of the net off a pass from Gerber to bring the game within two. Bethel would get another goal to re-extend their lead, but Patterson would score man-down for the Warriors with a feed from Gerber. Gerber would find the net soon after to bring the deficit to one, and Couch would score from the free position to tie it 6-6. The Pilots would retake the lead, but another goal from Baumgarten would take the game into halftime tied 7-7. 

Gerber started the second half with another free position goal to give the Warriors their first lead of the game. The Pilots were able to tie it, but Macedo would find pay dirt with an assist from Jun Saito to give Webber a 9-8 lead. Bethel scored the next two goals to make it 10-9 Pilots. A turnover by the opposition set up Leavines towards the end of the quarter as she got her second goal of the game to tie it at 10 heading into the final frame. 

With the Florida heat turning up in the fourth, both teams would get out to slow starts. Cheyenne Burton was able to give Webber a one-point lead as she scored with another assist from Saito. The Pilots soon after had an answer for Burton’s goal as they were able to tie it back up. Patterson had another free position goal, but the Pilots were able to capitalize and score two quick goals to take a 13-12 lead. Patterson would tie it with 2:29 left on the clock with another assist from Gerber. One minute later, Patterson found the game-winner on a man-up opportunity with yet another assist from Gerber. The Warriors were able to run out the rest of the clock and run off the field with a tight 14-13 victory over the Pilots. 

Gerber led the team with six points, four assists and two goals. Patterson had five points all on goals. Leavines, Baumgarten, and Saito each had two points for the Warriors. Defensively, Sophia Sesi led the team with five ground balls, she also caused one turnover and won a draw control. Alia Loydd had three ground balls and three caused turnovers, while Asiah Dewberry had three ground balls and two caused turnovers. In the goal, Jordyn Davidson netted six more saves. 

The Warriors will be back in action on Monday, March 11th when they host the Anderson University Ravens on the Warrior Turf Field.
