Women’s lacrosse spent the week away from Radford, playing two Big South conference games at Longwood and High Point.

Radford (1-12) traveled first to Longwood (7-7) to face the Lancers in a midweek tilt.

Five different Highlanders scored in the game which ended with the Lancers coming out on top with a score of 21-7.

Adrian Rius scored in her fourth straight game with at least three goals. Emma Rogers, Callie Bonnel, Gracie Peterson, and Juliette Ruland also scored in the game, but the Lancers were too much for the young Highlanders team.

Longwood outshot Radford, 32-15, and earned a 20-9 advantage in draw controls. The Lancers scored their first six goals before the Highlanders found the back of the net in the 21st minute of the game. Katie McHugh lead the Lancers with seven goals.

Radford then traveled to High Point (10-4) to face the Panthers for a Saturday night game under the lights.

Rius again led the Highlanders in goals, scoring two on the night. She has also has scored in 12 straight games and leads the team in goals on the season.

Bonnel and Ruland both also scored in the 19-4 loss. Bonnel scored the first goal in the game in the 22nd minute of the game.

Radford did score their four goals in five attempts in the net. But again High Point was too much for the Highlanders to take on.

Allie Foard led the Panthers with three goals on three shots. Twelve other Panthers also scored in the game. High Point scored 15 of their 19 goals in the first half. They also had 32 shots on the night.

Radford notched 8 saves on the night and were 6-12 on clears.
