ROXBURY, NJ – The Roxbury High School girls lacrosse team weathered chilly, rainy weather Tuesday for a decisive 13-6 win over Pope John XXIII.

The victory, in which Emily Koepfler scored four goals – including her 100th career goal – also saw Emma Karnitsky make four goals and two assists. Another reason for the Gaels to celebrate: Melissa Murphy scored her first varsity goal.

Roxbury dominated the Lions in both halves, scoring seven goals in the first and six in the second. Pope John managed three goals in each half.

Roxbury next takes on Kinnelon in an away game Thursday.
