Tiger girls’ lax tops Rutland in first game
RUTLAND — The Middlebury Union High School girls’ lacrosse team won its season opener on Friday, April 10, 12-7 at Rutland, after two games earlier in the week were postponed.
The Tigers’ April 14 game at BFA-St. Albans was also postponed. No makeup dates have been announced, leaving the Tigers’ next regularly scheduled game an April 28 date at Mount Mansfield.
At Rutland, the Tigers started slowly.
“We got off to a rocky start, down 0-3 in the first 5:35 of play, but settled defensively,” said Coach Kelley Higgins.
But the Tigers allowed only one more goal in the first half, and then three in the second half. Higgins said they tied the game quickly and took a 6-4 lead at the break and kept the lead throughout, with one key second-half goal coming when defender Riley Fenster intercepted a pass and ran coast-to-coast for a score.
Attacker Alexis Ouellette led the offense with three goals, and middie Julia Rosenberg added two. Six Tigers joined Fenster with a goal apiece, Lejla Mahmuljin, Emily Kiernan, Katie Holmes, Satchel McLaughlin, Emma Best and Emma Donahue.
Higgins said she was also happy the Tigers stalled effectively for the final four minutes.
Goalie Baily Ryan stopped nine shots, a total matched by goalie Kelsey Eddy for the 0-2 Raiders.
