Warriors beat Elks
Highlighting limited girls lacrosse action Tuesday night, Havre de Grace took the field for the first time in 2013 and pulled off an 11-5 victory over visiting Elkton on the turf of James R. Harris Stadium.
Havre de Grace found it tough going early on as Elkton goalie Delicia Webb turned away the first four Warrior shots. The Warriors, who dominated possession for much of the first half, finally broke through with 13:58 left in the half.
Taylor Johnson took a pass from Katie Thompson and tossed it past Webb to get the Warriors rolling. Less than 45 seconds later, Carly Thompson picked up a loose ball and scored unassisted for a 2-0 lead.
It took the Warriors 10 more minutes before Colleen McCormick added the Warriors third and final first half goal. Carly Thompson assisted on the goal.
Elkton broke its scoreless run with 1:22 left in the half, with Michaela Naughton doing the honors unassisted.
Unlike the first half, it didn't take Havre de Grace too long to start scoring in the second. Martine Ianniello scored the first of two straight unassisted goals at the 22:59 mark. The second goal came with 16:45 to play and gave the Warriors a 5-1 lead. The lead went to 6-1, 56 seconds later, on Johnson's second goal, off an assist from Brianna Haffey.
Elkton stopped the Havre de Grace run on Holly Boyle's low unassisted shot, but Havre de Grace answered with two goals for a 8-2 lead. Lauren Herrington scored the first with assist from Carly Thompson and McCormick netted her second goal of the contest with Haffey adding her second assist.
Elkton countered on Hannah Durant's goal, but the Warriors got that goal back when Herrington scored her second goal off Margaret Stump's assist with 7:33 to play.
Elkton scored its final two goals in the final five minutes. Naughton added her second goal with assist from Victoria Creek and Lena Muldoon scored unassisted.
Havre de Grace then closed out the scoring with goals from Kylee Barber and Haley Dean, assisted by Herrington and Carly Thompson, respectively.
Warriors goalie Abby Blessing finished with four saves and Elkton keeper Webb made 15 saves. The Warriors out-shot the Elks, 23-8.
