MHS Girls Post First Win Of Season, 12-5
By: RICH MACLONE, May 2, 2014
Oh, the irony of it all. Coach Pat Ball’s Mashpee High School girls’ lacrosse team picked up its first win of the season yesterday at Sturgis West, posting a 12-5 win over the Lady Navigators on the road. The coach was quite pleased to finally have his team pull out a W, but he hardly thought his team played its best. “Honestly, I think it was probably the worst we’ve played all season,” he said. “We’ve played some really good teams, and I thought we were better, but it’s nice to get the win.”
Mashpee led 5-2 at half-time, but Sturgis opened the second half by scoring two quick ones. From that point forward, though, it was all Lady Falcons as they outscored their hosts 7-1 the rest of the way. Eric Caldwell led the barrage, netting seven goals in the victory. Christina Ball and Rachel Bridges each scored a pair and Jackie Lynch had the other one.
Cassidy O’Hara finished with 12 saves in the net.
