CC traveled to Marblehead on Monday and extended their winning streak to 10 in a row as they methodically beat the lady
Magicians 18-10.

CC got ahead 4-0 after 6 minutes but was unable to stretch their lead as Marblehead climbed back into the game during a choppy first half of play. CC had a 5 goal lead at one point but Marblehead would not go away and the first half ended at 8-5.

The teams traded goals to start the second half before CC went on a four goal run to open up a 7 goal lead after 7 minutes. The teams then traded goals for the remainder of the day as CC went on to score 18 times, led by Becca Olsen’s 6 goals and 3 assists.
Emma Brandhorst added 5 goals and Emma Mahoney chipped in with 4 goals. CC’s defense was effective again with 7 caused turnovers as they made it difficult for Marblehead to advance the ball, particular in the early going.

Conley Ernst and Kayla Milofsky combined for the victory in goal. 

Coach Paul Morrison commented “The team has been on a great run and that is a testament to the captains' (Barrett, Brandhorst, Mahoney, Olsen) leadership on and off the field. All of our captains are all capable of scoring goals, but they also do the other things that are crucial to winning, and the underclassmen see that and follow suit."
