Denae McGrath scored three goals for the Genesee Community College women's lacrosse team on Wednesday night, but it was not enough as the Lady Cougars fell to visiting Niagara County Community College, 16-4 in their final regular season home game of the season.
McGrath's first goal came at the 11:08 mark of the first half to cut Niagara's lead down to 3-1. Cassandra Dembik scored four-minutes later to get GCC to within 3-2 and Genesee was able to hang around. McGrath responded to a Niagara goal with her second goal of the game to keep the Lady Cougars within one, at 4-3.
The Lady Thunderwolves took control of the game in the final ten-minutes of the first half, however, scoring five unanswered goals to end the opening period, upping their lead to 9-3.
Niagara made it 13-3 before McGrath scored her third goal of the game late in the second half and the Lady Thunderwolves cashed in three more times before the night was over to earn the victory.
Sarah Bosa made 18 saves in net for Genesee.
Genesee falls to 0-7 on the season and will travel to Herkimer County Community College on Saturday for a 1 p.m. start.
