The Arundel girls’ lacrosse team nabbed an early win against North County in both sides’ county opener on March 23, getting three goals from both Amanda Mozier and Natalie Schaffner; two apiece from Carly Wilson, Madi Newman and Hannah Lloyd; one each from Jordyn Harris and Skylar Grady, and five saves by Shannon Davis and four by Aly Danick in a 14-5 victory. The defense and midfield likewise did their part, holding the Knights to a paltry six shots while winning the ground ball battle 17-8.
Though they have since struggled to a 1-4 overall mark, the Wildcats are looking forward to the return of multiple injured players and have proven in stretches they are capable of playing excellent lacrosse. Against Annapolis on April 3, the Wildcats got goals from Wilson, Schaffner, Hannah Coakley and Carley Eutsler in a competitive loss, and Head Coach Melissa Howard sees promise in her group moving forward.
“They’re working hard,” said Howard on April 3. “They’re doing everything we ask of them and working hard in practice. I know we’re going to get better.”
The Wildcats will look to get back in the win column the week of April 8 with home games against Southern and Northeast.
