Lacrosse, Girls: Varsity defeats Westminster

Event Details

Westminster came out with 6 – 0 lead in the first 23 minutes, and though the rest of the field felt balanced, the Black and Gold were able to find the back of the net while our Deerfield shooters struggled.  We weren’t able to claim space on the scoreboard until the last minute of the half. With a ‘one at a time’ confidence, however, DA entered the second half with a clearly defined shooting agenda and belief in themselves and their teammates.    During the 2nd half, Westy scored three goals in the first ten minutes to bring their tally to 10.  At that moment, however, the Big Green unleashed a comeback and scored approximately every three minutes to bring the game to OT.   2 minutes into overtime, Kathryn Grennon was awarded a free position shot and sent a riser to the upper left corner.  In our post-game chat, the captains felt as though the entire team was deserving of the Player of the Game award.   ​
