Devils knocked out despite win over Potsdam

Fredonia women's lacrosse got the win it needed Saturday at Potsdam, just not by as large as score they needed to make the SUNYAC Tournament.

The Blue Devils emerged with a 9-8 victory over the Bears, yet needed to win by two or more goals to make the six-team SUNYAC Tournament. Instead, Potsdam will go.

The heatbreaking part for Fredonia: Potsdam scored its eighth goal with 27 seconds left.

Fredonia would also have made the tournament with a win over Potsdam and an Oneonta win over Geneseo. Instead, Geneseo defeated Oneonta.

The Blue Devils -- who finished their season with a 7-10 overall record, 3-5 in the SUNYAC -- built an 8-3 halftime lead and were outscored 5-1 in the second half. Senior attack Katie Miller (Hamburg, N.Y./Hamburg) led the attack with five goals and five draw controls. Sophomore midfielder Audrey Yokopovich (Webster/Webster Thomas) added two goals and three assists, plus two draw controls and three caused turnovers.

Fredonia sophomore goalkeeper Nicole Burrows (Baldwinsville/C.W. Baker) made eight saves and collected four groundballs.

Fredonia's three graduating seniors playing their final collegiate game were defender Lauren Kotas (Williamsville/Lancaster), defender Jessica Tuttle (Webster/Webster Thomas), and attack Juliana Kotas (Lancaster, N.Y./Lancaster).
