Liberty girls pick up steam, win 26-1


It's hard to please coach Courtney Vaughn.

Vaughn's 13th-ranked Liberty girls lacrosse team won its second straight Class 4A-3A North regional game in overwhelming fashion, a 26-1 pounding of visiting Damascus in Eldersburg yesterday.

Senior attack Michelle Allen led 11 different Lions players in scoring with five goals and four assists, and sophomore midfielder Lindsay Weiner and sophomore attack Becky Trumbo each contributed a hat trick and three assists to help Liberty improve to 13-2.

But Vaughn said she is concerned with the lack of defensive strategies in yesterday's contest and in a 29-1 rout of Frederick on Thursday."It's nice to see everybody score, but we're not getting the kind of defensive pressure that we're going to see down the road," Vaughn said.

The Lions will play host to county rival North Carroll tomorrow at 5 p.m.

North Carroll 11, South Carroll 6: Senior attack Jill Pyzik and junior midfielder Erin Lamotte each recorded a hat trick to help the host Panthers win their second Class 4A-3A North game in Hampstead.

North Carroll (11-3) also received goals from senior attack Erin Cullison and sophomore attacks Maria Humphries and Lauren Therit to compensate for the absence of junior midfielder and leading scorer Lacey Hentz, who was ejected from the game for receiving two yellow cards with about five minutes left in the first half.

Junior attack Leah Onda and sophomore midfielder Jen Kasper tallied two goals apiece for the Cavaliers (7-7).
