LOS ANGELES — Five different Tigers scored, but the Occidental College women's lacrosse team ran into another quality team in an 11-5 loss to Fredonia State at Jack Kemp Stadium on Monday.

The Tigers (4-6) have lost four non-conference games in a row, but their opponents during that stretch came into Oxy with a combined record of 12-0 and one was nationally ranked.

Beebe Finch Sanders (Berkeley), Alida Beck (Portland, Ore.), Haley Gandsey (Oakland), Isabel Osgood-Roach (Portland, Ore.) and Rebecca Belding (Burlingame) all scored for the Tigers.

Oxy was even with the Blue Devils (6-0) until Rachel Reinis, Katie Kleine and Marissa Cussins rattled off three consecutive goals for Fredonia, beginning with 7:59 to play in the first half, to take a 5-2 lead into the break. In the second, Fredonia added three more unanswered, putting the game away midway through the half.

Charlotte Bromley (Watertown, Conn.) and Belding each snatched up a pair of ground balls for the Tigers and Tori Larson (Denver, Colo.) grabbed four and had five draw controls.

Cussins had a game-high four goals.

Oxy hosts Oberlin College on Wednesday at 7 p.m. and Colorado College on Sunday at 1 p.m. in its final two non-conference games before returning to SCIAC play against Claremont-Mudd-Scripps on April 6 at Jack Kemp Stadium.
