The women's lacrosse team lost to undefeated Trinity 13-6 before fighting to an 18-12 win against Endicott last week.
The Polar Bears were unable to recover from an early 5-0 deficit in the Trinity game, which ultimately cost them the match. The Bantams' victory avenged their only loss in the past two seasons, which came at the hands of Bowdoin in last year's NCAA quarterfinals.
Carolyn Gorajek '13 said that the game against Trinity was "definitely a wake-up call to refocus ourselves and fix some problems individually that could help the team be more successful."
According to Gorajek, the loss stemmed from the Bantams' early lead.
"We came out flat and didn't have the sense of urgency we needed to make up for the goal deficit," she said.
Despite the loss on Saturday, Gorajek is optimistic about the teams mix of returning and new members.
"The freshmen are just as competitive and driven as the upperclassmen," she said. "It's exciting because we have pretty high expectations for this season."
On Tuesday, Bowdoin came back from behind to rally against the Endicott Gulls, winning the game 18-12. Gorajek and Elizabeth Clegg '12 were instrumental in Bowdoin's victory, scoring four goals each. Tomorrow, the team heads to Wesleyan for a match at 1 p.m.
