The Lady Knight Lacrosse team traveled to Acworth on Wednesday April 14th to take on the Lady Warriors from North Cobb. The Lady Knights were impressive with all things considered. They were physically and emotionally exhausted from their war with East Paulding the previous night. However, the Lady Knights did what true competitors do – they dug deep and found a way to bring out those competitive juices needed to get the 10 – 5 Area victory.
The Lady Knights were led offensively by Senior Hannah Vecsey who scored a game leading six goals on the evening with one assist for a total of seven points on the evening. Sophomore Riley Parker, and Junior Maggie Gallion chipped in two goals each for the Knights to add to the scoring. Juniors Jordan Pruitt, Rylee Holland, and Maggie Gallion each were credited with an assist.
On the defensive side, the Knights were resilient once again and held strong giving up on three goals until the final minute of the contest. They were lead by Juniors Grace Hamrick, Haley Warholak, Mackenzie Aceto, and Hannah Hewgley. Freshman Goal Keep Emma Porterfield had a solid first half recording five saves. Freshman Valerye Susino came in and played well in relief for Porterfield in the second half.
Congrats to the Lady Knights.
