WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – Looking to end a two-game losing streak, a very determined Lakeland/Panas squad earned a hard-fought 11-10 victory at White Plains on April 27.

“After the losses against Yorktown and Brewster, we were definitely fired up,” Lakeland/Panas’ Katie Bradbury said. “No one likes to lose and we were not planning on continuing on a losing streak. Yorktown and Brewster may not have been our best games, but we decided to look forward and improve on the mistakes we made. Every game is a new opportunity to grow as a team and the White Plains game definitely showed our improvement.”

Bradbury (4G), Carlyn Mucci (3G) and Emily Kness (2G) provided the bulk of the scoring for the Rebels versus the Tigers.

“We were simply determined to get a win,” Bradbury said. “We know our strengths and what our team is capable of so we were not going to lose. We competed until the very end and looked to bury every shot that we took.”

Caroline Cahill (3A), Kelsey McCrudden (1G, 2A) and Gianna Napoli’s (2A) playmaking ability also played a key role in the win against White Plains.

“No one person can do everything on their own,” Bradbury said. “We are a team; we win together and we lose together. It was important to have Gianna, Caroline and Kelsey in there connecting with everyone on the field and creating opportunities for others because it is never solely about individual achievement — it is about the team effort as a whole.”

Staying with the Rebels’ team theme, Valerie Perkins (1G), Kiera Scott (2 saves) and Caitlyn Jackson (2 saves) also contributed in the win.

Two days later, Lakeland/Panas hosted John Jay-Cross River, falling to the Indians 14-11.

Bradbury (4G), Napoli (1G, 3A), Perkins (2G, 1A), Cahill (2G), Kness (1G), Mucci (1G) and Jackson (8 saves) all took part in the Rebels’ effort against John Jay.

Lakeland/Panas (8-4) began its week with a 15-11 loss at Brewster on April 25.

Bradbury (3G, 1A), McCrudden (2G, 2A), Perkins (3G), Kness (1G), Mucci (1G), Cahill (1G) and Jackson (4 saves) stood out in the Rebels’ contest against the Bears.

Yorktown was victorious at Brewster 18-10 on April 27.

“We were aggressive and our fundamentals were strong,” Yorktown’s Katie Comerford said. “We played as a full unit at Brewster. “

Comerford (5G, 1A) and Casey Duff (5G) made up more than half of the goal scoring for the Huskers.

“Our team was able to put Casey and I in positions to score and contribute,” Comerford said.

Rilea Fusco (2G, 6A) Julia Cook (3G) and Michelle Seger (2G, 1A) also enjoyed multiple-goal games.

“These girls are getting their stride at the right time of year,” Comerford said.

Ciara Frawley (1G) and Catherine Calidonna (4 saves) got into the box score as well for Yorktown against the Bears.

Yorktown (8-4) concluded its week with a 12-11 defeat at Greenwich on April 29.

Duff (6G), Fusco (2G, 2A), Comerford (1G, 2A), Seger (1G), Ellen O’Callaghan (1G), Cook (1A) and Calidonna (2 saves) all produced for the Huskers.

I digress.
