Chapelgate loses, 13-8, to Indian Creek in girls lacrosse

In its first year in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland, Indian Creek is making a name for itself. Twice this season the Eagles, which only have one conference loss, have defeated Chapelgate, the defending C Conference champion.

The most recent victory came Tuesday as Indian Creek won, 13-8.

It was a disappointing outing for Chapelgate, which was finishing up a stretch of eight games in 10 days and which was also without midfielder Emma Rufolo, who was sick.

“This is not the same team as last year,” said Chapelgate coach Colleen Norton. “We have a lot of new players and a lot of new seniors. We also have a lot of watchers. They want to watch and see what the more experienced players do.”

Watching doesn’t help move the ball up and down the field, however.

Rufolo’s absence hurt in the midfield transition, but Jen Yahiro and Christina VanWingerden were able to get the ball to Chapelgate’s offensive end and be effective. Yahiro had four goals and VanWingerden added three.

The breakdown came on the defensive end, particularly in the second half as Indian Creek pulled away from a 4-2 halftime advantage.

“Our defense just lost its composure,” Norton said. Adding that her players just got into their own heads that they couldn’t compete with the Eagles.

“We ended up playing catch-up in stead of maintaining” our scoring, Norton said.

The Indian Creek trio of  Abby O’Neil (five goals), Kianna Dawson (three) and Margo White (three) helped their team keep out in front.

“Our work around the 8 (meter  mark) is really good,” O’Neill said. “My team gives me really good feeds and they cut really woo so it helps me get assists.” The freshman had four assists on the afternoon.
