The CCHS Girls Varsity lacrosse team (13-3) continued its winning streak, beating a tough Masconomet High School 17-11 last Wednesday.
CC opened up the game winning the first draw control, controlling the offense, and scoring the first goal of the game by senior Grace Andonian on a free position shot. After a quick goal from Masconomet, CC went on to score 3 more times from solid offensive play by senior Hannah Dudley and sophomore Peyton Vaughn.
During the first half, CC’s solid defense continued its dominance and shut down Masconomet’s offense. Senior Sophie Shipe had a key interception towards the end of the
first half which kept Masconomet out of the scoring column Three more goals by Dudley, and one by sophomore Kylee Bowen, as well as some terrific saves by goalie senior Abbie Flynn, increased CC’s lead to 8-2 at the half.
The second half was more of the same as CC dominated the draw control, with Dudley, Vaughn, Madeline Leahy and Johanna O’Neil all combining to dominate the circle. CC saw 6 different players score in the second half. Although Masconomet made a run, scoring 4 quick goals in 2 minutes towards the end of the game, junior Alison Haney stepped up and made a key interception to change the momentum.
Solid defense and caused turnovers by senior Brianna Stout, as well as some key saves by Abby Flynn kept Masconomet out of the game. Six Patriot players had multiple point games including Dudley (5 goals, 1 assist), Vaughn (3 goals, 1 assist), Andonian (2 goals), Bowen (2 goals), O’Neil (2 goals), and Leahy (2 goals).
