Girls Lacrosse

From Coach Crawford

The Cowboys hosted Walnut Hills during a windy Tuesday night.   In an exciting JV game, the Cowboys fell behind 0-3 early in the first half but fought back to tie 3-3 at the half.  Second half play saw the Cowboys down 5-3, but goals from Ellie Marty saw the Cowboys tie the game at 5-5 with 26 seconds remaining.   But in the game's last draw, the Eagles took possession and with 12 seconds remaining scored with the final score Cowboys 5, Eagles 6.  Goalie Olivia Grady had a tremendous performance recording 14 saves.  Goals were lead by Ellie Marty (3), followed by Lauren Montgomery (1) and Anna Cate Meis (1).  JV Cowboys record entering Spring Break is 1 Win and 1 Loss.

The Varsity squad also had an exciting game against a tough Eagles team that was looking to reverse last year's lost to the Cowboys.  The first half saw a low scoring, defensive display with the Cowboys on top 6-3.  Two more goals in the first four minutes of the second half saw the Cowboys establishing some breathing room at 8-3, until the Eagles scoring machine ignited and went on a 5 goal unanswered scoring run to tie the game at 8-8 with 2:57 left in the game.  Goalies from both teams performed brilliantly to end last minute offensive attacks as game time expired.  However, in sudden victory overtime, the Eagles won the draw control but could not net a goal after several attempts, thanks to a stonewall Cowboy's defense and remarkable save by Goalie Claire Mellott that, with the following clear, saw the game ending score from Lindsay Stewart after receiving a pass from sister Haley.  Final score 9-8.

Goals were lead by Marielle Smith with 3, followed by Libby Wadds (2), Reilly Simmons, (2), Haley Stewart (1), and Lindsay Stewart (1).  Draw controls were lead by Haley Stewart (5) followed by Emily Wood (3), and Kelly Lyons (1).   Assists were lead by M. Smith (3) followed by H. Stewart (2), and Caroline Meis (1).  Cowboys move to 2 Wins and 0 Loss.
