The Elon Phoenix soared over the UNC-Wilmington Seahawks with a 2-0 win, but later lost to the Davidson Wildcats with a score of 2-1.  

Because several of Davidson’s players were unable to attend the game, both teams were forced to play only eight players at a time, instead of the usual 11.

The game marked the beginning of Elon’s spring season, which will continue March 1 at High Point University.

“Our double-header was a great kick-off to spring season,” said Elon senior Molly Donahue. “We only had two weeks to practice, but we played great. Our girls had good stick skills and communicated really well. I’m excited to see what we can do with more time and practice.”
