MAHOPAC, N.Y. — Briana Corace netted four goals and Caroline Raymond had three goals and three assists to lead Mahopac's girls lacrosse team past arch-rival Carmel, 13-7, on Wednesday.
Mahopac (6-4) and Carmel (3-5) were tied 3-3 at halftime. The Rams went up 6-4 with 20 minutes left, but the Indians erupted from there, outscoring Carmel 9-1 the rest of the way.
Gabby Light (2G, 1A), Kristen Maxwell (1G, 2A), Katie McDonough (2G, 1A), Marella Verde (1G), Natalie Scanlon (seven groundballs, 1A), Christina Lopreato (1A) and Emily O'Shea (six saves) joined Corace and Raymond on the stat sheet. Raymond also won 7 of 11 draw controls and gathered five groundballs.
"It is great to get off to a 3-0 start in our league," Mahopac coach Jim Lieto said. "Each year our league has been getting stronger and stronger and all of the teams are really working hard. We take pride in being the defending league champs and we know that the second round of league play will be even harder than the first go round."
Carmel was paced by Margaret Fiocco's three goals. Catrina Babnik made six saves.
Mahopac is back in action when it travels to Roy C. Ketcham High School to face Wappingers tomorrow at 3:45 p.m.
