Your Lady Tigers Lacrosse Team resumes their 2015 season on Saturday February 15th as the Sam Houston State Lady Bearcats (1-4) & Houston Lady Cougars (0-2) lacrosse programs come to Baton Rouge for a couple of games each to be played out at the LSU UREC Fields. Located off of River Rd, just down from Alex Box Stadium – parking & admission for the games is free, as always.

The Lady Tigers are looking to continue a strong showing for the season on the heels of their 12-6 win over D1 Texas Women’s Lacrosse League (TWLL) conference opponent Baylor Lady Bears & a 10-10 tie in exhibition play against neighboring foe Tulane. The postseason hangs in the balance for the purple & gold as there are 4 divisional games remaining on the schedule. At this point in time, it appears that all roads lead to undefeated SMU for the 2nd place D2 TWLL qualifier.

At 10am the Tigers & Bearcats will face off in a D2 TWLL conference matchup with post season play looming in the balance. Sam Houston State comes to town led by Head Coach Allisa Blanton, an alumnus of the school & team. After opening their 2015 campaign with a 14-7 win over now inactive Trinity Lady Tigers the Bearcats have suffered 4 losses in a row, 2 to D1 TWLL opponents & 2 to D2 TWLL opponents.
At high noon Sam Houston & Houston will square off as each will look to improve upon their records in TWLL play. Last season, the Lady Cougars earned the victory in a tight 13-11 final over the Lady Bearcats in the 1st contest between the 2 programs in TWLL action.

Houston makes their way to Baton Rouge looking to find a W in their TWLL season after 2 losses to D2 SMU & TCU on Sunday February 15th. Led by Head Coach Collin Palomares the Cougars are looking to improve on their 1-3 record in 2014.

Then at 2pm, LSU & Houston will conclude the day of games. The Lady Tigers traveled to Houston last season coming away with the 17-8 victory in their 1st ever matchup against the Lady Cougars. The Lady Tigers are led in scoring by 3 juniors on offense: Taylor Reeves (Boston, MA) with 4 goals, Emily Sullivan (Long Island, NY) & Reese Gassie (Leonardtown, MD) have notched 3 goals each. Look for the entire LSU offense to continue to put up solid game numbers this weekend. Junior goalie Kaci Rogers (Winnfield, LA) has put up a 60% save marking in the game vs. Baylor.
