RANDOLPH, NJ- The Randolph girls varsity lacrosse team has turned their fortunes around from last season’s 5-11 struggle. Having compiled a record of 4-1 in their league, and 5-2 overall in just the first half of the season, the Lady Rams earned a No. 6 seed and a first round bye in the Morris County Tournament.
In their two most recent games, Randolph defeated Morristown-Beard 11-5, and lost a nail biter to Morris Catholic 9-8.
Against Mo-Beard, TT Naslonski posted three goals and added four assists for seven total points to lead Randolph’s offense. Jillian Fantuzzi recorded a hat trick for the second straight game ( she netted three goals against Pequannock ), while Roma Hladky finished with two goals and an assist for the Lady Rams.
Sutton Todd made 12 saves in net for Randolph.
In the Morris Catholic game, the Lady Rams seemed to have an off day, turning the ball over frequently and allowing the Crusaders to control the ball and the tempo. Randolph, who trailed 7-5 at half, and 9-6 at one point, made a late push but it was not enough.
Jillian Fantuzzi and Kelsey Szot each scored two goals, while TT Naslonski had a goal and two assists and Bryn Fantuzzi collected two assists.
Randolph plays their County tournament opener at home against Morristown-Beard on Apr. 29. Their next game is Tuesday Apr. 25 away at Mt. Olive.
