Girls’ lacrosse off to a good start in the pre-season

Riley Beem

By Matt Pascarella

The girls’ lacrosse team played a preseason game against Thornton Academy on Wednesday, April 3rd at Saint Joseph’s College in Standish.

The very windy conditions did not slow the Lady Eagles down. Windham was aggressive right from the start, pressuring Thornton Academy. Emma Yale #24 scored shortly into the game. From that point on, Windham could not be stopped as their strong offense and defense only let Thornton score one goal. The Lady Eagles just kept going. Riley Beem, #1 got one by the goalie. Then Emma Baker, #12 scored. Windham worked hard, beating Thornton Academy to the ball and the score reflected it. 

Belle Skvorak ,#10 put two in the net. Baker got another one by the goalie. Windham did not let up. Morgan Colangelo, #25 put one in, Skvorak scored two more times and then Yale got one between the posts.

Final 10-1, Windham

“We had a really big improvement [from a previous game] and we really worked on the things that
we felt we weren’t good at,” observed coach Matt Perkins. “I’m really pleased about how we worked those practice and we already see the change today. They’re focused...and their coachability is what we’re looking for.”
