Four straight defeats to open the season had left the Cazenovia girls lacrosse team in an ornery mood - something that would start to ease only when a victory was secured.
And the Lakers broke that drought in an emphatic manner during Tuesday's game against Westhill at the Fenner Street complex, where Gabby Jaquith - and the rest of her team - sparkled in a 19-8 romp over the Warriors.
All through the first half, Cazenovia showed its potency on the attack, not stopping until it had a 9-5 lead. And that production picked up in the second half, just as the defense tightened and kept Westhill from any ideas of a comeback.
Jaquith, in all, picked up 12 points, backing up her seven goals with five assists. She kept getting open because Kaitlyn Button and Becca Wheeler were quite effective, each of them scoring four goals and three assists.
In support, Colleen Dougherty got two goals, while Laura Gregg and Jessy Silfer each had one goal and one assist. Kayla Dorrance contributed an assist, too.
