St. Paul, located in Brooklandville in suburban Baltimore, stayed on even terms with WG most of the way. A fast-paced first half allowed the Wildcats to move in front 9-6, and dictated the pace in the latter stages, even though it couldn’t pull away.
Hawley, with five goals, and Tripodi, with five assists to go with her pair of tallies, led the attack. Geremia finished with three goals as LaComb, Hildebrandt and Anna Elmer each scored once. Kara Datellas added an assist.
Following the win over Oswego, WG returned home Friday night and ripped its way past Rome Free Academy 21-0, with 14 of those goals coming in the first half and everyone in the roster getting a chance to see game action.
Marissa Rose led with three goals and one assist. LaComb, Geremia, Mary Maestri and Michaela Ciciarelli each scored twice. Olivia Wolfram had a goal and two assists as Hawley, Elmer, Hildebrandt, Bello, Shelby Milne, Lindsay Ponto, Marissa Hudgins, Dana Anderson and Madison Huegel took turns getting their own goals.
This only adds to the build-up for Friday’s trip to Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium to face Baldwinsville, who has gone 8-1 since losing to WG 11-6 back on March 31. A Tuesday game against Auburn precedes the rematch with the Bees.
