The CC girls lacrosse team shook off their Tuesday loss to AB with a solid 19-11 win Thursday at Wayland. The Patriots are now 12-1. 
The Patriots were poised, confident and all business Thursday looking to get back to their winning ways. Hannah Dudley set the tone early taking the opening draw and storming to goal to put the first of 19 CC tallies on the board. This was followed only seconds later by Captain attacker Lexi Goodhue, who appeared to be unstoppable this day, as she ripped one to the back of the net for her first of 5 goals on the day. The offensive fireworks continued with Junior attacker Cassidy Hale adding 2 of her 4 goals while Dudley added 2 more. Dudley would end the game winning 9 draw controls. 

While the offense took charge the Patriot defense played very tight allowing only 8 first half shots on net. CC goalie Conley Ernst made 5 saves including 3 challenging bounce shots. The first half ended with CC ahead 11-3.

The second half was much the same with CC adding 8 more goals coming from 7 different players and although the Warriors managed to get more shooting opportunities than they had in the first, it was impossible to stop the CC offensive surge.

Strong CC performances came from Captains Lexi Goodhue & Madeline Leahy, Hannah Dudley, Cassidy Hale, Margot Painter & Audrey Hunt.

Coach Paul Morrison commented after the game. “This was a great bounce back win after AB. Lexi Goodhue had a tremendous game. She carried the torch for the team which played with passion and something to prove to themselves and others. Hannah Dudley dominated on draw control giving us a huge possession advantage and the defense played in its normal aggressive and strong way".

The Patriot Girls have two games this week beginning Thursday at home versus league rival Westford Academy followed Friday away at Masconomet.
