The Lincoln Sudbury Warriors arrived Wednesday ready to play. Unfortunately, they were overmatched 14-7 by a confident Patriot team that came prepared to win

While the Warriors played a strong, high pressure defensive game from the first draw, CC’s offense found consistent paths to the goal with excellent passing and focused shooting.

Hannah Dudley (4 goals) started the Patriot scoring on the opening draw win. Grace Andonian registered the next two with skillful crease rolls and finishes. Dudley followed by powering her way to the net for the next two CC goals. Next it was Freshman Caroline Hughes scoring on a nice assist from fellow freshman Payton Vaughn. Patriot Senior Captain Lexi Goodhue (4 Goals) then went to work with some sharp shooting finding the back of the net three times in less than two minutes. Junior Captain Madeline Leahy scored the final goal of the half with 30 second left to give CC a 10- 2 lead.

The Patriots assault was made possible because of their tremendous success on the circle as Dudley (6 draw controls) Johanna O’Neil ( 3 draw controls) and Margot Painter (2 draw controls) all contributed. O’Neil would end the game with an additional 4 ground balls and 4 caused turnovers.

On the defensive end Captain and Goalie Conley Ernst, with her usual flare, anchored a very strong and determined unit that kept LS at bay with few scoring opportunities and less than a handful of shots on net.

Junior defender Sophie Shipe led the defense collecting 3 ground balls and a forced turnover while Painter scooped another 2 ground balls. Juniors Audrey Hunt and Brianna Stout had their usual solid games.

The second half was played much tighter with LS coming out strong and scoring 3 quick goals forcing a CC time out. The Patriot’s offense got back on track as Dudley again found the back of the net only to be followed by Junior attacker Cassidy Hale’s 2 successive goals, one coming on an assist from Senior Captain Jenna Carlton. Captain Lexi Goodhue earned her fourth and last goal of the game on a free position shot.

It was a solid team performance by the Patriots and their seventh straight win of the season.

Coach Morrison “LS Game: That was a great win for us. LS is always a strong program and despite being down in the game they never gave up. Lexi Goddhue had a great game in the attack end and Hannah Dudley was immense in all three zones of the field. Johannah O'Neil had a great defensive day.”
