Oklahoma Baptist lacrosse team hosted Rockhurst University for a Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference contest in its last home game of the season.

The Lady Bison seemed to have a great start when Paige Morrison scored two early goals to give OBU a short advantage.

However, the visitors reacted and found the end of the net five consecutive times to send the game to a 10-4 halftime score for the Hawks.

Freshmen Breanna Wichert and  Lauren McCormack contributed a pair of goals to shortened the score.

With six minutes minutes left, junior Alexis Martin scored a goal after an assist from Allison Ingrim.

The Lady Bison added three more goals in the second period, but Rockhusrt kept pushing and beat freshman goalkeeper Courney Barnickle in nine opportunities.

The final score was 19-7 resulting a tough loss for OBU on Senior Day.

The Lady Bison registers a 2-6 RMAC and 4-8 overall record.

The lacrosse team will close the spring season when the Lady Bison visit Lindenwood, MO. OBU will face Mckendree University April 20 and April 22.
