Decatur girls’ lax team wins ‘17 opener, 10-5, over STPP
(March 24, 2017) The Stephen Decatur girls’ lacrosse team won Wednesday’s season opener, 10-5, over the Saints Peter & Paul Sabres in Berlin.
“Overall, I think we played well. They pushed themselves and tried to do a lot of the things we’ve been working on, and they played cleaner defense,” said Decatur Coach Sara Braniecki. “We realized there are a lot of things we need to work on [such as] more communication and doing defensive and offensive sets properly.”
Senior captains Claire Porter (one assist) and Christina Romano scored three goals apiece. Seniors, Lexie VanKirk, a team captain, and Brigitte Ardis and freshmen Sarah Engle (one assist) and Mariana Donohue netted one goal each.
Senior captain Sara Mitrecic recorded five saves in goal for Decatur.
“I think it’s a good way to start the season,” Braniecki said. “I’m excited. I think we have a good season ahead of us.”
Decatur will travel to Ridgely on Monday to face the North Caroline Bulldogs at 5 p.m. The Seahawks will host the Queen Anne’s Lions on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m.
