NCAA Lacrosse: Northwestern Women’s Lacrosse Loses To Team USA 16-6 In US Lacrosse Champion Challenge Exhibition On Jan 29

Northwestern tested its mettle against arguably the best women's lacrosse team in the world on Sunday, falling 16-6 to Team USA in exhibition play at the U.S. Lacrosse Champion Challenge in Orlando, Fla.

 The matchup presented a chance for the current ‘Cats to go up against a number of former Northwestern greats, who combined to score eight of Team USA’s 16 goals.

The Wildcats, who shook off a slow start and eventually found their rhythm to the tune five second-half goals, were led in scoring by Amanda Macaluso’s two goals and one assist. Senior goalkeeper Brianne LoMantoplayed the full 60 minutes in the net and made 11 saves. .

“It’s obviously a lot to handle, they have unbelievable players top to bottom,” said NU head coach Kelly Amonte Hiller of Team USA. “We did a nice job battling and we did some good things defensively. It was just some little things that cost us — ground ball battles, turnovers toward the beginning. We just have to keep working on those things before the season.”
