Lily Colley

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Freshman Eleanora Keene scored with 29 seconds left in regulation to give Guilford College a 15-14 lacrosse victory over Marymount (Va.) University Saturday.

Keene's lone goal of the game capped a stirring second-half comeback that saw the Quakers (2-1) erase a 10-5 halftime deficit. Lily Colley, who sparked the rally with five second-half goals, assisted the game-winner off a free-position opportunity. Colley scored the first two goals of the second half and tied the game for the first time with her third goal of the game at the 19:37 mark. Her final tally with 4:40 left gave Guilford a 14-13 edge, its first of the match.

E'leyna Garcia added three goals and an assist in the Quakers' third game determined by one goal. Summer Frazier scored three times and Becca Colley contributed two goals, four ground balls and four draw controls. Keene had a game-best 10 draw controls and Liza Mettler made nine saves in goal.

Marymount's Taylor Johnson scored three goals, all in the first half. Stephanie Flood tied the score at 14-14 with her third and final goal with 59 seconds left in the game off a free-position shot. Megan McGuirk added two goals and Molly Maher added seven ground balls and five caused turnovers, both game highs. Lourdes Lanzas made 12 saves in goal.

The Quakers host Greensboro College Wednesday at 4:00 p.m.
