Regis Women's Lacrosse Drops Low-Scoring Game to Colorado College 9-6

Colorado Springs, Colo.: The high-scoring Regis University women's lacrosse team was held to just six goals in a 9-6 loss to rival Colorado College.

Colorado College (1-0) scored the first two goals of the game but Regis (1-1) responed with two of their own over a four-minute span to tie the game at two.  Freshman Melissa Hastie scored her the Rangers first goal while senior Erin Dybus notched a goal off an assist from senior Morgan Taylor.
