The 2019 WPLL season may have been slowed a bit by cancelled games due to poor weather, but one thing couldn’t be denied — amazing talent and skill showcased by the WPLL players. Read our 2019 WPLL season recap to catch the top moments from this past year.
The WPLL had its fair share of difficulties with the weather this season. First, they were forced to postpone the games that were scheduled for West Chester, Pennsylvania on July 6 to July 13 at Loyola’s stadium in Baltimore, Maryland. Then, the games scheduled for Long Island were cancelled due to a heat advisory in the area.
It’s too bad that the WPLL had to cancel some of their games, because the product they had been putting on the field was really good.
Even in spite of the difficulties, it was still a memorable year for the league as they saw incredible growth on their various media platforms as well as the fantastic action that was found week-after-week for each of the games.
Let’s take a look at some of the top moments from the year.
2019 WPLL Season: Top Moments
Brave Find Redemption
The Brave proved their mettle in what was an exciting title match between the Brave that saw the club win their first title after losing in the WPLL’s inaugural championship game last season.
What was great about this game was the 5-1 run at the end of the game to put the Brave ahead by a single goal to win the game.
The team’s success was in large part due to Dempsey Arsenault, who had four goals and an assist in the contest and was all over the field showing why she was a finalist for the Tewaaraton Award this past year.
Kayla Treanor’s BTB Goal Makes SportsCenter
Speaking of championship games, Fight attacker Kayla Treanor had SEVEN goals in the 2019 championship game. Talk about a heroic effort. Not only was she the most deadly offensive player for that game on the field, but she also made SportsCenter for her amazing behind-the-back goal. Check out the play below:

This play took place back in Week 3 at Homewood Field in Baltimore, Maryland — one of the most historic fields in all of college lacrosse.
