J-E lacrosse teams earn splits

Amanda Wheeler had four goals and one assist. Kelsey Youmell scored three times, adding an assist, too, as Carrie-Jo Farrugia had two goals and one assist. Ella Thorpe and Amanda Brown each got one goal and one assist as Mallory Snyder and Emily Dillon also converted.

Kelsey Richardson posted 11 saves, the same as Cazenovia counterpart Lauren Divine. Gabby Jaquith and Kaitlyn Button led Cazenovia with four goals apiece.

The Eagles turned around Thursday night and put together a 10-9 victory over Westhill that involved some late heroics from Farrugia.

Trailing 6-4 at halftime, J-E kept in touch throughout the second half, yet still trailed 9-8 with less than a minute to play before Farrugia took over.

With just 39 seconds left, Farrugia flung a shot past Morgan Roach, tying the game 9-9. J-E quickly won the ensuing draw and, 10 seconds later, Farrugia converted the game-winner, her third goal of the night to go with three assists.

In support of Farrugia, Youmell and Dillon each got two goals, while Emily Bates and Chelsea Maitland also scored. Brown and Wheeler added assists. J-E won despite Westhill's Brenna Rainone (four goals, three assists) and Caroline Buonocore (three goals, one assist) both having fine efforts. Richardson had nine saves.

As it turned out, J-E, with the no. 3 seed for the Class C-2 playoffs, hosts a rematch with no. 6 seed Westhill on Monday, with the winner to get Skaneateles or LaFayette in Wednesday's semifinals. The C-2 final is Friday at Solvay's Earl Hadley Stadium.
