MAMARONECK, N.Y.— Mahopac’s girls lacrosse team fell into a six-goal first-half hole in the Section 1 Class A quarterfinals and couldn’t dig its way out.

The sixth-seeded Indians stormed back in the second half, but were unable to overcome the large deficit in a 9-7 loss to third-seeded Mamaroneck on Saturday, May 20.

“You are never ready for a season to end and it comes to an end so abruptly,” Mahopac coach Jim Lieto said. “The girls worked really hard leading up to the game and they gave it their all right till the very last second. I am so proud of how they never gave up, stuck by each other’s side and fought their way back into the game in the second half.”

Mahopac scored the first four goals of the second half over a nine-minute span.

Diana Good started the scoring spree when Morgan Kirby found her for a picture-perfect goal just over a minute into the second half.

Four minutes later, Caroline Raymond finished on a free-position shot. Two minutes after that Kristen Maxwell tallied another goal of the free position variety.

Raymond then found Good for a goal and Mahopac trailed just 7-5 with 15:43 to play.

Mamaroneck then went into stall mode to put a halt to Mahopac’s momentum. The Indians were held scoreless for the next 13 minutes.

Mahopac was forced to pressure the ball with five minutes left, leaving holes in the defense. The Tigers capitalized and went up 9-5 with just under three minutes to go.

Katie McDonough found Raymond for a goal and Briana Corace finished on a feed from Good to cut it to 9-7, but that was as close as the Indians would come.

Raymond (3G, 1A) and Good (2G, 1A) each had multiple point games for Mahopac. Emily O’Shea made seven saves.

The Indians, who finished the season 9-8, graduate a talented senior group of players.

“The Class of 2017 will truly be missed,” Lieto said. “They have had a tremendous four years of high school lacrosse and I wish them well in everything they do beyond high school.”
