The Lady CapsLax played a much more competitive game against conference rival Athens Drive last Friday night, 4/08. A good crowd was on hand for senior night in what was the only varsity Girl's/Boy’s CapsLax double-header of the season. Seniors Paula Escobar and Heather McDougal were recognized during a ceremony after the game. (Note: A separate ceremony will be held for Sara Stidham and Charlotte Dubald who were not able to attend last Friday's recognition ceremony.)
In this Athens game, the Lady CapsLax entire defensive unit was stellar particularly in the 1st half. The score was 4 vs. 3 in favor of Athens at halftime, much different than the first outing earlier in the season. Athens broke open a tight game early in the 2nd half causing Broughton to play catch up the rest of the game which ended up in a loss by a respectable 8 vs. 12 score to the conference’s second ranked team. Overall this was a great game by the Lady CapsLax showing overall team effort, passion, and hustle consistently by the entire team. On offense, leading the Lady CapsLax scoring was freshman Kelsey Dupere (5 goals), senior Paula Escobar (2 goals), and sophomore Mary Katherine Fagan (1 goals). Alex Yankoglu added one assist on the evening.
