The women's lacrosse team rolled over Bates on Wednesday evening, notching another impressive win to bring their total tally to 10-2 (5-2 NESCAC). With the victory, the women are now ranked 12th in the nation.

Wednesday's game against Bates proved to be a breeze for the Polar Bears, as they dominated the play and kept the Bobcats away from the goal. The Polar Bears ultimately won a 30-20 victory in shots on goal, exhibiting their control of the ball.

Carolyn Gorajek '13 scored a goal and gave two assists to bring the initial game tally to 4-1 before the eight-minute mark. Toward the end of the first half, Bates scored again to bring the tally to 4-2. However, the next 35 minutes proved fruitless for the Bates team, as they were held scoreless while the Polar Bears racked up five goals.

With 12 minutes left in the game, the score was 9-2. The Bobcats rallied, with a flurry of goals that brought the score to 9-6 with seven minutes left to play.

Katy Dissinger '11 and Katie Stewart '12 each scored, holding off the Bobcats for the final score of 11-6, serving Bates their 18th loss out of the last 19 games played between the two schools.

Stewart scored a total of three times for the Polar Bears, and Gorajek scored twice, with two assists.

The women's restful week served the team well last weekend, as it rebounded from a tough loss against Middlebury with a 21-4 win over Wheaton College.

Last Saturday's victory proved heartening for the women as the high margin of victory allowed younger players field time and the opportunity to score.

The Polar Bears came out tough, bringing the score to 14-0 almost immediately. Wheaton was held scoreless for the entire first half, as the women skillfully maneuvered the ball away from their end.

The beginning of the second half continued in the same vein, as the Polar Bears extended their lead to a 16-0 that easily carried them to a 21-4 win over the non-conference team. The women scored the last four goals of the game, tipping them over 20 goals for the second time this season.

Thirteen different women scored, as starters were allowed to sub out. Scoring powerhouse Katie Herter '12 and first year Jordan Smith both tallied a goal for Bowdoin, and first year Molly Popolizio had a goal and an assist. Additionally, Gorajek, Chelsea Albright '12, McKenna Teague '12 and first year Cayla Liptak each scored two goals for the Polar Bears.

This weekend, the Polar Bears look forward to a home game against Williams, and then a non-conference midweek contest against Husson University as their season draws to a close.
