C. Milton Wright hosted a perennial state girls lacrosse power Wednesday, bringing the Century Knights to the turf in Fountain Green. The Knights have been in the state final six of the past seven seasons, winning four of them.
Wednesday, however, it was CMW getting the win, beating the Knights, 14-13, in non-league action.
"Century jumped out quick on us and we talked during our timeout that we needed to increase our intensity and play as a unit to compete with a quality team like Century," CMW head coach Brent Ritz said. "After that timeout we responded, changing the momentum from being down 6-2 to tie the game at the half."
The game was tied 8-8 at the half, and CMW kept pace throughout the next stanza.
"We were able to hold momentum in the second half, mainly due to some great effort on 50/50 balls. Maggie Gallagher and Lauren Haggerty led the way on the offensive end and our defense really tightened up and played cohesively to make Century work much harder for their goals," Ritz said.
Gallagher led with four goals and Haggerty netted three. Haley Alexander and Lauren Cavanaugh also had multiple goals with two each. Alexander and Haggerty added three assists each, and Gallagher had two.
Mustangs goalie Katelyn Miller made seven saves.
