Girls varsity lacrosse falls short 13-11 to Rockford


The girls varsity lacrosse team lost a hard-fought 13-11 battle on Monday against the Rockford Rams. The Rangers had zero substitutes for the game and were clearly worn down by the end. Despite the loss, head coach Zoe Mamo is proud of her team for being so competitive and battling until the final whistle. 

“The girls continued to remain competitive for the entire game, which we have struggled to do in the past,” coach Mamo said. “They were able to fix their little mistakes on their own and play a full game despite still having a tough loss.”

Ranger goalie, Tori Bates, did an amazing job in the net. She made some incredible saves that helped keep the Rangers in the fight. On the defensive side of the ball, the Rangers did a relatively good job controlling the attack from Rockford. Despite coming up just short, there are so many positives that the girls can take away from this game. 

“We actually played a really complete, well-round game,” senior Julia Brown said. “We had a lot of smaller team victories, even if the score didn’t end in our favor.” 

The girls have Forest Hills Northern and Spring Lake on Wednesday and Friday of this week. They are looking to come away with two wins to round out this week’s worth of competition. 

“We had girls step up at much-needed times due to [having] no subs,” coach Mamo said. “I think [that] helped some of them gain the confidence they need moving into the last part of the season.”
