When these two teams met back in March, Broughton quickly took control of the game and cruised to a 16-1 win. This time the result was similar, a 19-3 Broughton win, but it took a more time than normal to get things going. It took Broughton almost 5 minutes before they finally broke the ice with the first goal, but then the goals came in bunches. Leading Broughton in goals scored was Margaret Anne Warner with 5 goals. Several of those goals came on assists from Carol Seigler who led the team with 6 assists. Seven other Broughton players had 2 goals each showing a very balanced offensive attack.
The defense once again provided stiff competition for the opposing Cougars who were able to score 3 goals after only having 1 goal in the previous game. The Cougars did not get by the defense often but when they did we had 2 strong performances from both our goalies. Carson Harvey was in front of the net in the 1st half and Emily Nicholas filled in nicely in the 2nd half recording 3 saves. We were also able to see several reserves see extended play including seniors Wooten Joyce and Katie Childrey on offense and Sara Goodwin Brook and Lawson Strickland on defense.
With the win the Capitals improved their overall record to 11-1 and 5-0 in the Conference. The Women’s Lacrosse team will close out the season next week with away games at Heritage on Tuesday, at Sanderson on Thursday. The season home finale against Enloe on Friday will be Senior Recognition Night for our 10 Seniors.
