Girls Lacrosse Falls Short At Roxbury

By on April 6, 2018

On a cold, blustery Wednesday afternoon this week, the Lady Hillbillies girls lacrosse team competed until the very end but came up just short, losing to Roxbury by a score of 13-10 at Roxbury High School.

Verona found themselves down 4-1 early in the first half, prompting head coach Sue Giarusso to call a timeout to reset the girls and the move worked. Coming out the break senior CC Courter found the back of the net after receiving a well-placed assist from junior Allie Madigan for the first of her two goals in the game to make the score, 4-2, and start the Verona comeback. Madigan would also score her first goal of the season a few minutes later and the Lady Hillbillies managed to tie the score at halftime, 6-6.

Juniors Erin Kiernan and Sarah Carlucci played at a high level throughout the game, both scoring three goals apiece to keep Verona close whenever Roxbury would begin to pull away.Sophomore Maggie Lonsinger has a huge impact on the game with her two assists and an eye-popping ten draw controls, which might be a VHS single-game record. Junior Julia Mackey also registered a goal and an assist in the contest, one of six Lady Hillbillies recording points in a well-balanced effort by Verona.

Despite second half goals by Courter, Kiernan and Carlucci, to narrow the gap, Roxbury would eventually outscore Verona, 7-4, in the half to clinch the win. Goalie Skyler Freedman recorded six saves in the loss.

Verona (2-1) returns to action on Saturday morning, April 7 for a 10 a.m. Freedom Conference-South clash at Kent Place (0-1).
