Bel Air women's lacrosse league begins 20th season

Celebrating its 20th season, the Bel Air Women's Summer Lacrosse League opened another year of play Tuesday night in Rockfield Park, but late day storms cut the opening night three-game schedule down to two games - one each in the league's junior and senior divisions.

The night started with junior division play, which for the first game of the season, was between teams A and B. Team B jumped to an early 3-2 lead and was never threatened, pushing to and maintaining a three-goal lead the rest of the way for an 11-8 win.

McKenzie Cox led the winners with four goals, while Delaney Miller and Holly Edwards added two goals apiece. Mallory Boyd, Megan Bollinger and Anastasia Neuman also had goals for Team B.

Alexis Susa led Team A with three goals and Olivia Zorn had two. Single goals were scored by Chloe Dietrich, Sam Foster and Corinna Zorn.

Abby McClure made eight saves in Team B's goal and Bella Ianniello recorded seven saves for Team A.

In the night's lone senior division contest, Gray Goose broke a 4-4 second half tie with Bubbalicious, scoring five unanswered goals, en route to a 9-5 win.

Marisa Braungart scored three goals to pace Gray Goose and Chelsea Braungart netted a pair. Kelly Cross, Kelly Kemper, Kati Vu and Kaitlyn Koterwas each had single goals.

Lisa Parr led Bubbalicious with two goals, while single goals were tallied by Gabby Spalt, Brooke Prater and Meghan Campbell.

Brittany MacKnew made five saves in the Gray Goose goal and Kaitlyn Neumeister registered 10 saves in goal for Bubbalicious.

The other senior division game, between Key Lime and Carribean Blue, got started but because of lightning, the game was halted with five minutes to play in the first half. Key Lime held a 3-0 lead when play was suspended.

The league plays games at Rockfield Park's Ewing Street every Tuesday and Thursday evening, under the direction of league coordinator Terry Handerhan.
