Lady CapsLax Rally Falls Short Against Gibbons
The Lady CapsLax hosted a strong Cardinal Gibbons team last Tuesday night for its first home game of the season. Many on their team are experienced players that play lacrosse year-round. While the final score was 8 vs. 18 in Gibbons’ favor, on the field it was a much closer game. On the offensive end of the field, our girls surprised our opponents, both with our efficiency and with the number of players who contributed. The Lady CapsLax balanced scoring was lead by senior Paulina Escobar (3 goals), junior Alex Yankoglu (2 goals, 2 assists), freshman Kelsey Dupere (2 goals, 1 assist), and sophomore Mary Katherine Fagan (1 goal, 1 assist). The real difference in the game was unforced turnovers, particularly in our transition game on the defensive end of the field. When our girls learn to get the ball into the hands of the midfielders quicker and with more consistency it will certainly pay dividends.
