Lacrosse: UConn looks to snap three-game losing streak
The UConn lacrosse team returns home Sunday to take on James Madison. UConn (1-4) is currently on a three-game losing streak during which they have dropped games to Dartmouth, Boston College and New Hampshire. Meanwhile, the Dukes are 4-1 following, come-from-behind victory over No. 9 Penn State.
UConn hopes to bounce back strongly at home, where they are 1-2 to start the season. Perhaps being home will be a benefit, as the only game JMU has lost this season was on the road at Florida. JMU, based in Virginia, may have trouble playing in the cold, as the weather forecast predicts a mid 30s temperature, and the wind is always a factor up at the Sherman Complex.
The Huskies' losing streak cannot be pinned on one particular aspect of the game. At times, the offense, defense and goaltending were all clicking, and at times, all three aspects failed to produce. They lost to Dartmouth 14-11, in a game where their offense was clicking on a high level. They followed that performance with a blowout defeat at the hands of Boston College 15-3. Tuesday, at New Hampshire, the Huskies fell short in a furious comeback in the second half, 11-7.
If UConn is to prevail Sunday, they will need sophomore goalie Shannon Nee to shut down an offense that is averaging over nine goals per game. The Huskies will also need junior Lauren Kahn to add to her team-leading 16 points. Katherine Finkelson is second on the team with 11 points.
Sunday's game begins at 1 p.m. at the George J. Sherman Family Sports Complex.
