-As the girls lacrosse season begins to head down the homestretch, several things are for
sure. After Spring Grove's win against Red Lion recently, no team will finish the season without a win. The Rockets got off the schnide with a 7-6 win over Red Lion on an overtime goal from Jordyn Miller.
Spring Grove found themselves on the wrong side of two early season one goal losses and finally earned their payback against the Lions.
- Earlier in the season I spoke with New Oxford head coach Jessica McIntyre about the
youth and inexperience of her team and she mentioned that building up their confidence and redefining wins was important for the continued growth of her team. It seems the Colonials are starting to turn things around.
Through the first six games of the season the Ox were 0-6, averaging four goals a game. In their last five games the Ox are 2-5 and have increased their scoring to 8.2 goals per game.
- After suffering a season opening loss to York Catholic, South Western rattled off nine straight wins. During the span the Mustangs outscored their opponents 158-48.
The Mustangs have fallen on hard times in their past two games, both losses, at the hands
of Kennard-Dale and Susquehannock. While the Kennard-Dale loss may not have been a huge surprise to many, the Mustangs allowed the Warriors to earn a come-from-behind 11-9 victory on Wednesday.
South Western has a bevy of weapons offensively and their defense, while youthful has gotten better every game so Mustang fans should not push the panic button, it appears this years team is equipped to make a deep playoff run.
