CBA’s girls lacrosse team resumed action last Tuesday, against the newly-combined Bishop Ludden/Bishop Grimes entry, and steadily worked its way past the Gaelic Knights 18-8.
An active first half saw the Brothers gain a 10-5 edge. Ludden/Grimes never went away, thanks to one of the Grimes players, Erannan Shattuck, who led her side with five goals.
Still, CBA had too much production. Caroline Webster got six goals and one assist, while Taylor Poplawski scored four times. Marisa Romeo and Sophie Racciatti each scored three times, gaining three assists between them. Rachel Perla added a goal and two assists and Meg Hannan chimed in with one goal and one assist.
When the Brothers met 5-2 Tully on Saturday afternoon, it used timely scoring spurts to take control on the way to beating the Black Knights 19-9.
CBA got the game’s first three goals before the game was five minutes old. Tully played on even terms from there, but with the score 7-4 the Brothers lit it up as Romeo, Webster and Michelle Wiese all scored in the last two minutes of the half, doubling the margin to 10-4.
From there, CBA breezed home as Romeo piled up five goals and four assists, with Wiese enjoying her best output of the season as she earned four goals and two assists. Poplawski got three goals, while Racciatti and Emily Ehle each had two goals and one assist. Webster gained three assists to go with her lone tally as Dell’uomo and Rachel Vercillo scored, too.
Each of the CBA sides would play Onondaga Tuesday before key tests on Friday against Marcellus.
