BRIDGEWATER, MA- The Bridgewater State Bears Women’s Lacrosse team played this season in the first time in two years as COVID continues to  roll on even with a vaccine. 

Their season was supposed to start on March 20th against Western New England University, but the seasons start was pushed back with testing concurs. 

The BSU season started with a weekend series against the Worcester State Lancers as they lost both games of the weekend contests. With the next series being against Framingham State, in which the first game. BSU lost 11-10 in double overtime in a thriller. A couple days later, they were supposed to face off against Framingham State again but, Framingham had a COVID case, so they cancelled that game. 

The Bears got their first two wins of the season the following weekend against Mass Maritime and Salem State on April 8th and 10th respectively. 

Senior captain Emily Hiller won the MASCAC Conference player of the week for her performance during the weekend, scoring 15 goals along with a pair of assists for a total of 17 points.  

However, the Bears lost both the games the next weekend against the Westfield State Owls. Their last series of the season would be against Fitchburg State in which they swept them in crushing fashion, by scores of 20-4 and 22-2 respectively. Hiller scored her 100th goal of her career in the second game of the series.  

The Bears’ last game was on April 29th against at the Worcester State Lancers, in which they lost by a score of 18-10. 

For the season, Hiller led the team and the MASCAC Conference in goals with 37. Hiller also lead the team in assists with 11 while also leading the MASCAC Conference in total points (48) and shots (78).  

When the season concluded, I got to talk to Hiller and her fellow senior captain Kelsi Brennan about the season, and here is what they had to say. 

I asked about how their thoughts on the seasons and the captain Brennan said, “It went very well considering that we are in a pandemic.” as Hilled added on, “t was a lot of fun, and I’m proud of everyone for sticking through it.” 

Brennan also said, “I felt very excited just to have another chance to get out there, even if it was short.” 

There are no playoffs in the MASCAC Conference this year, there is just a championship game for the top two teams in the conference as the Bears failed to make this season. BSU ended their season with a 4-6 record, and they were fourth in the conference.
