MPrep Girls' Varsity Lacrosse faced off against Beaver Country Day School in their season opener for 2019.
Both squads came out strong and ready to play. MPrep won the ball on the first draw with freshman newcomer Cassie Belsito gaining possession off a loose ground ball on the circle. The Knights took a bit to gain back momentum after that but were able to put 4 goals on net. Freshman Cassie Belsito scored her first two varsity goals for MPrep followed by one in net by junior Josie Nguyen and one by fellow junior, and Captain, Mary Wall. Notable standouts on defense included junior Julia Kilroy who scrapped and won several turnovers on ground balls and fellow juniors Ava LaRoche and Eva Dellea.
The BCD squad ended the game with a 16-4 win but the Knights are just starting and already have their sights on Friday's matchup against Wilbraham & Munson.
