NORTHAMPTON, MA-Host Smith took an 8-1 halftime lead and held off the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's women's lacrosse team, 10-7, in a non-conference match at the Smith College Athletic Fields Thursday evening.
The Corsairs scored the final three goals of the game, and had a few chances in the final two minutes of the game, but were unable to come any closer.
"We came back big time, but we ran out of time," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Jerry Jennings. "I was pleased with our team for coming back strong after we came out a little flat in the first half. We have games three days in a row with a game against a tough Eastern team tomorrow, so we played everyone tonight."
UMass Dartmouth fell to 5-8 with the defeat, while Smith improved to 4-10 with the victory. The Corsairs will return to action when they visit Eastern Connecticut State in a Little East Conference match Friday.
