CBA girls lacrosse gives J-D first loss

Even in a week where records and milestones were part of the mix, the Jamesville-DeWitt girls lacrosse team finally suffered a blemish -- at the expense of its neighbors.

Christian Brothers Academy made the short trip across town last Saturday and put an end to the Red Rams' school-record 12-game win streak, winning by a score of 12-9.

Constant pressure helped the Brothers stay out in front most of the way. CBA won a majority of the draws and kept the ball in J-D's end most of the way, never allowing the Red Rams to get much of a respite.

And though J-D goalie Tara Prosak made 13 saves, she could not keep everything out. Katie Webster led CBA with four goals and two assists, while Natasha Grant, Taylor Gait and Sophie Raccitatti each scored twice. Michelle Wiese and Caroline Webster had single goals.

J-D saw Tori Nies put up a three-goal hat trick, while Molly Maroney found the net twice. Liz Beville, Ashriel West, Kate Byrnes and Meredith Howe each had one goal.

Earlier in the week, Phil Luckette, the Red Rams' head coach, got his 200th career win last Tuesday afternoon when J-D ripped past Fulton 22-6.

On its way to a school-record 11th consecutive victory (and Luckette's milestone), the Rams used double-digit goals in each half to overwhelm the Red Raiders.

Emily Johnson led with five goals and two assists as Nies and Byrnes both earned four goals and one assist. Howe had a team-best four assists.

Beville (three goals, two assists) and West (two goals, two assists) were close behind as Maroney, Morgan Freeman, Taylor Bierwagen an Lauren Swan also scored.

The Red Rams made it 12 in a row on Thursday, topping New Hartford 20-4 in a game where, once again, the production remained high all afternoon.
