After four consecutive losses to Indian Creek, including one in last year’s conference championship, Chapelgate found the win column, 9-2, on Monday.
In their final home game of the season, the Yellowjackets held the Eagles scoreless in the second half, something that is hard to do in a high-scoring game like girls lacrosse.
Ahead, 5-2, at the half, Chapelgate “came out even more determined,” said coach Colleen Norton.
The Yellowjackets’ defense, anchored by goalie Courtney Hayes (six saves), caused five turnovers and made three interceptions in keeping the reigning IAAM C Conference champions scoreless.
Emma Rufolo, Julia del Carmen and Abby Heffler each scored twice for Chapelgate, which upped its record to 6-4 in conference play.
Abbi O’Neil and Kacee Helm found the net for Indian Creek. The Eagles beat Chapelgate, 10-7, earlier this season.
