A comeback attempt came up short Sunday afternoon, as the Queens College women’s lacrosse team scored the final six goals of the contest before falling to visiting eighth-ranked Bentley University 9-8.
The host Knights (7-3), who trailed by a 3-0 count at halftime and 6-0 with 17:04 remaining, notched their first goal 15:46 to go when junior Kayleen Kelty converted a feed from senior Meghan Monahan.
The teams then traded one goal apiece over the next minute and change, before the Falcons (10-4) scored two consecutive goals to capture a 9-2 edge with 8:58 left.
From there, it was all Queens, as junior Melissa Montreuil started a six-goal spurt to end the game with her second tally of the day at the 8:04 mark. Freshman Shannon Doody scored with just under seven minutes to play, before Monahan scored back-to-back goals to bring QC within a 9-6 count with 3:23 to go.
Montreuil converted a pass from Doody with 2:17 remaining, before Kelty fired home a free-position shot with 57.1 seconds showing on the clock.
