What a turnaround game for the Lady Knights! Despite the final score of 11-5, the Lady Knights played a tremendous game today.! They were cohesive, they transitioned the ball, and they caught double teams. Alyssa Morrison was strong in the goal, challenging frequently and keeping the intensity until the very end with 15 saves. Additionally, Morrison and her defensive team showed spirit and camaraderie throughout the whole game.
In the first half it was anybody's game. The score was tied at 3-3 and it was goal for goal for both teams. It didn't seem like either squad was going to budge on the board. Senior Emma Pickett scored the first two goals for the Knights and freshman Cass Belsito put the third on the board. The tie trend carried over into the second half of the game with both teams going goal for goal to keep the tie on the board at 4-4. It was at this point that Wilbraham had some hard breakaways and shots on goal that brought them into the lead. The Knights would answer back with one last goal from freshman Cass Belsito hard down the middle.
Despite the ending to a hard fought game, Girls' Varsity Lax is happy with their play and looks to come on strong against Williams on Monday!
