The Lady Lancers have been making their presence known in the Crossroads League with a dominant past two weeks. Their first match against Saint Francis (9-6, 4-2 CL) was a close match, with Grace edging by with the 2-1 victory. Behind two goals from Joceyln Evans and five saves from goalkeeper Abigail Burns, Grace was able to hold off Saint Francis. Evans scored the game winner with five minutes
left in the match. Following that match, the Lady Lancers faced another tough matchup against Mount Vernon Nazarene (6-7-3,
2-3-2 CL), where stormy conditions played a major role in the match. Finding themselves down 2-0, Grace stormed back with goals in the final eight minutes of play from Kristin Yocum and Carianne Sobey. Grace nearly won the game in regulation when Mallory Rondeau slotted a shot that cleared the goalie but was saved by a defender. Neither team scored in the overtime periods and the match ended in a hard fought2-2 draw. In the final match of these past two weeks, Grace shut out Marian
(6-9-1, 1-7 CL) 3-0 on Senior Day. Scoreless after a half, Grace notched three goals by three freshmen, Darcy Johnston, Carianne Sobey, and Faith Voehringer. Burns recorded three saves to preserve the shutout. The Lady Lancers (12-3-2, 5-2-1 CL) look to finish strong when they face Goshen on Tuesday for the final match of the season.
