By Sam Shiffman

[score id=”49291″ align=”right”] The girls lacrosse team (2–1) shut down the St. Andrews Lions 18–3 Thursday in their highest scoring game of the season.

The Vikes were able to take control early on with a goal off the opening faceoff from midfielder Eden Gray. Gray and midfielder Julia Curran won a majority of their faceoffs throughout the game.

The squad continued to dominate on the attack, taking a 9–3 lead at half.

“We stayed spread out and patient on attack,” defender Ellen Middleton said. “We tried running a bunch of our plays which we ran successfully and resulted in many goals.”

Gray, Curran and midfielder Jenna Hosker led the Vikes on offense, scoring multiple goals each. The team was able to set up goals for each other due to their communication, attacker Hope Hilsenrath said.

In addition to finding success on offense, the Vikes were able to hold the Lions to a season low in goals.

“Our defense had really good crashes and slides that made it difficult for St. Andrews to even get a shot off,” Middleton said.

The Vikings next game is home against Richard Montgomery Saturday at 2:30.
