LAGRANGEVILLE, N.Y.— Senior Gabby Light tallied four goals and four assists in Mahopac girls lacrosse’s 14-8 win over host Arlington on April 18.

Light scored the first three goals of the second half to give Mahopac a 10-3 lead as the Indians held the Admirals scoreless for the first 12 minutes of the half.

“Gabby Light had a huge day for us today,” Mahopac coach Jim Lieto said. “At one point she had a hand in either scoring or assisting on eight of 10 straight goals over a 30-minute stretch in the middle of the game that helped us pull away.”

Caroline Raymond (3G, 2A) and Diana Good (2G, 3A) were also big contributors for the Indians.

Kristen Maxwell scored two goals while Katie McDonough (1A), Briana Corace and Morgan Kirby added a goal apiece.

Emily O’Shea (five saves) and Jordan Barbagallo combined to make seven saves in net. Good, Kirby and Natalie Scanlon scooped up five groundballs each.

“It’s always great to win games in our league,” Lieto said. “The girls take pride in the fact that we are two time defending league champions and want to continue that this year. Every game within the league means a little more to both teams. We are especially happy to have been able to go up to Arlington and defeat them on their home turf, which is a difficult place to play.”

Mahopac was deadlocked at 3-3 with powerhouse Suffern at halftime, but the visiting Mounties outscored the Indians 11-3 in the second half to pull away for a 14-6 win on April 20.

“In all three of our losses the other team has gone on one big run that makes the difference,” Lieto said. “The seven-goal run by Suffern to start the second (half) was just too much to overcome. We have to be able to stop the other team’s big run and expand our own runs.”

Raymond netted three goals for the Indians, while Corace (2G), Kirby (1G, 1A), Good (1A), McDonough (1A) and Alexa Rispoli (1A) also got in the box score. Natalie Scanlon collected six groundballs.

Mahopac hosted rival Carmel on April 26 and will travel to Wappingers for a 3:45 p.m. game two days later. Both games are league contests.
