MAMARONECK, N.Y.— Facing a three-goal halftime deficit, Mahopac’s girls lacrosse team was unable to come-from-behind in a 16-10 loss to host Mamaroneck on April 12.
Trailing 8-5 at halftime, Kristen Maxwell cut the Tiger lead to two goals just 90 seconds into the second half.
Mamaroneck, however, wasn’t messing around after that as it scored five goals over a four-minute span to take a commanding 13-6 lead.
“It was a game of possessions and runs and unfortunately Mamaroneck was more successful than us in both of those areas,” Mahopac coach Jim Lieto said. “We were never able to score more than two goals in a row while they were able to go on a three-goal run in the first half and the backbreaking five-goal run in the second half after we got as close as 8-6.”
Caroline Raymond led Mahopac (4-2) with four goals and two assists. Maxwell added two goals, while Katie McDonough (1A), Natalie Scanlon, Diana Good and Morgan Kirby added a goal apiece.
Emily O’Shea (four saves) and Jordan Barbagallo combined to make six saves in net. Kirby and Scanlon each picked up four groundballs.
The Indians crushed visiting Wappingers 18-3 on April 8.
Raymond and McDonough tallied three goals and three assists apiece. Kirby added four goals. Good (1G, 2A), Gabby Light (1G), Maxwell (2G, 1A), Briana Corace (2G), Devin King (2G, 1A) and Colleen MacNeil (1A) helped the Indians fill up the stat sheet.
O’Shea and Barbagallo notched three saves each in the win. Scanlon, Maxwell and Marella Verde scooped up four groundballs apiece.
Mahopac traveled to Arlington on April 18 and hosts Suffern at 4:30 p.m. today.
