The Edgewood girls lacrosse team opened its 2019 season Monday with a shutout win over host Aberdeen.
The Rams scored in the first minute of play and then added 12 more goals to win the non-UCBAC division game, 13-0.
Emma Grantand scored the Rams first goal, just 53 seconds in and the Rams rolled from there. Ryan Parncutt’s first of two goals came nearly 6 minutes later, then Alexa Warren added her only goal a minute later, causing Aberdeen coach Erin Steelman to call timeout.
Out of the timeout, Edgewood senior captain Shelby Johnson scored back-to-back goals, some 24 seconds apart.
Johnson’s third goal was the final goal of the half, which ended with the Rams leading, 9-0. Mary Anne Moubarak, Parncutt and Madison Rankin also scored in the first half.
“It feels great, honestly, it was all about running our plays,” Johnson said. “This is the first time we’ve really gotten out here and started to run our plays and honestly, we didn’t do bad today. All things considered, we were able to get out there, settle the ball down and work the plays in the way that we needed to.”
It was Johnson’s fourth goal that opened the second-half scoring 6 minutes in. Caris Cianelli, Moubarak and Phoebe Calero, a freshman, added the final three Edgewood goals.
Aberdeen goalie, Taylor Miller, a senior captain, was a bright spot on a gloomy day for the Eagles. Miller made 15 saves, some of which were from point blank range.
“We definitely have a new team this year, so it’s a lot to improve, definitely working with people, but it’s good to see hustle from everybody and be able to interact with the defense and kind of teach newer players,” Miller said.
Edgewood starting goalie Danielle Larbi made one save.
