LAX: Tough Loss for Lady Caps

Friday night was a perfect evening to play lacrosse. It started out with great food and socializing at the parents tailgating party, and the weather was beautiful. Although the score didn’t show it, we were in control of the game til the end. It was a tough, heartfelt fight as the Lady Caps lost to Wakefield 11 to 10.

We dominated the first half. Sydney Fry and Kelsey Dupere each scored two goals, and Alex Yankoglu and Charlotte Barbour each scored one. Emotions were high as Wakefield was awarded two yellow cards and we were given one. Kelsey Dupere had three aerial intercepts and we won 12 ground balls. The score at the end of the half was Broughton 6, Wakefield 4.
The second half was even more intense, as the girls fought hard to maintain their lead. Once again, tension was obvious as Wakefield was handed two more yellow cards, resulting in one player down for the remainder of the game. The lead kept changing with BHS up by two, then Wakefield catching up again. Alex Yankoglu scored two more goals, followed by Sydney Fry and Kelsey Dupere with one each. Each team had six draw controls.
The score was tied in the last two minutes of the game. With a Wakefield goal, it left us with less than one minute to tie the game. Unfortunately our luck and the clock ran out. The final score was Wakefield 11, Broughton Lady Caps 10.
