Lacrosse, Girls: Varsity defeats Berkshire

The temperature reached 95 degrees with another ten likely added by the turf during Wednesday’s contest against the Berkshire Bears.  The Deerfield defense offered a consistent, confident, and effective performance throughout the day, and the victory was very much a consequence of their steady defensive execution.   The story was not quite as positive on the offensive end of the field where the Big Green struggled to find their rhythm and/or the back of the net.  Despite this, the Big Green maintained composure, positivity, and continued to compete.  Their resilience through an off-game resulted in a two-goal advantage when the clock ran out.  The Captains named Margaret Williams as the Team Player of the Game for scoring the first goal of the contest and for her effort in diving flat-out to save a ball that was rolling out of bounds.
