CONGRATS to the Lady Knights JV and Varsity Lacrosse team as they swept the Lady Blue Devils from Marietta last night. The JV Knights got things rolling with a thrilling 8-7 win that wasn’t decided until the final whistle blew. Marietta was driving for the game tying score as the clock was counting down. However, the Knights defense stood their ground and did not allow Marietta to get off of final shot preserving the 8-7 win. Marie Fallon, Megan Paloski, Emma Roberts, Sammie Glendening, and Kate Hewgley each recorded goals in the victory. With the win, the JV Knights move to 1-0 on the season.
In the nightcap, the Varsity competed in a thriller of their own taking down Marietta 12-10. Things were all knotted up 7-7 at intermission. The Knights stood tall and never wavered. The Knights consistently had the lead throughout the night and Marietta would make several runs. However, the Knights never relinquished their lead and had a 14-11 edge with about 3:00 to go. Marietta started the rally and brought the score to 14-12 in favor of our Knights with about 2:30 to go. The Lady Knights won the draw and maintained possession for the final 2:30 to leave Marietta with a 12-10 victory.
