Brown Women Triumph Over Bryant And Capture 6th Ocean State Cup
Since the inaugural year of the Ocean State Cup in 2010 the Brown University Women’s Lacrosse Team are undefeated in cup play. This year’s cup competition was no different as Brown came out firing on a very frigid 22-degree morning. After Bryant scored first Brown went on a hot streak scoring 7 straight goals to lead Bryant, 7-1, at the half. In the second half Bryant led off with a goal but Brown answered with 4 consecutive goals of their own to lead 11-2. Bryant persisted despite the score and went on a run of their own scoring 5 goals halfway through the half. It was not enough to catch Brown as they scored once more and walked away with a 12-8 victory.
Both Lauren Toy and Yuna Hur had hat tricks for the Bears.
The rosters of both the Bears and Bulldogs were well represented by Rhode Island talent. For Brown they have Julia Carrellas from the St. George's School and Hannah Langmuir from Moses Brown. On the Bryant roster is Molly Smith from Smithfield High School and Kendall McCartney from LaSalle.
In 2010 the Rhode Island Chapter of US Lacrosse established the Ocean State Cup given annually to the winner of the intrastate lacrosse games between Brown University, Bryant University, and Providence College for the men and Brown University and Bryant University for the women.
