Commodore girls’ lax falls to Lakers
COLCHESTER — No. 8 Colchester on Tuesday defeated the Vergennes-Mount Abraham collaborative girls’ lacrosse team, 15-11, in a first-round Division II playoff game.
The Commodores finished their second season of varsity play at 4-11, quadrupling their first-season win total.
Colchester improved to 5-11, a misleading total considering the Lakers played a number of D-I games and had recently defeated D-I St. Albans, 14-12.
Coach Marikate Kelley said the Commodores gave the Lakers a battle, and Colchester earned just a 29-27 edge in shots on goal.
“This group never gave up all season and stayed in the game right to the end. (I’m) very proud of them,” Kelley said.
Norah Deming, one of just three seniors on the team along with attacker Erin Lawrence and defender Ally Atkins, scored three goals to lead the Commodores. Sydney Weber contributed two goals and an assist, Jalen Cook had goal and two assists, and Lawrence recorded a goal and an assist.
Leah Croke, Siobhan Eagan, Ava Young and Hannah Kelly also found the net for the Commodores, and Harriet Anderson and Ashley Tierney each played a half in goal and made six saves.
Gabby Gosselin poured in seven goals and set up two scored to lead the Lakers, and two goalies combined for 14 saves.
