The Varsity Women's Lacrosse team got off to a quick start with a goal scored by Kelsey Dupere in the first minute of play. Wakefield came back with numerous answers, outscoring Broughton 11-6 in the first half. Despite the frigid, damp and slick conditions, the Lady Caps, fought back with passion in the second half and held the Wolverines to 7 goals. The most bizarre event of the evening came with 19 minutes left on the game clock. The Wakefield goalie was charged with a penaty for wrapping up Madeline Crone in her stick, eliminating the goalie from further play for the evening. The penalty shot was then taken and scored by Crone on an empty net. There was a barrage of yellow cards on both sides in the second half. Broughton kept bringing their game, even scoring a last second shot to end the evening: Wakefield 18--Broughton 15. Other stats: Kelsey Dupere-6 goals/ 1 assist; Madeline Crone-5 goals/ 1 shot off frame; Sydney Frye-3 goals; Sara Joyner-1 goal; Olivia Joyner (G)-4 saves.
