CLAREMONT, CA -- In their first true test of SCIAC play, the Athenas (9-12, 2-1 SCIAC) were handed their first SCIAC loss of the season, losing a 7-5 match to the Occidental Tigers on April 10th.
The Tigers were up 4-1 after the first quarter, but the Athenas, with seniors Abigayle Lin (Honolulu,HI) and Kristyn Ross (Woodland Hills, CA) leading the play were able to come back strong and show a lot of heart in order to finish the game. CMS goals include Jenny Ward (JR, Davis, CA) with two and Kristyn Ross, Abigayle Lin and Jessica Palmer (SR, Sacramento, CA) with one apiece. Abigail Woodruff (JR, Davis, CA [pictured]) also played a solid game with 12 saves.
The Athenas are now 2-1 in SCIAC and will be playing the La Verne Leopards at La Verne on April 14th at 5pm.
