ESM girls lacrosse defeats J-D, 8-6

Dooling, DeVona help Spartans; F-M starts 1-1

Nicki DeVona had two goals and one assist, while Morgan Young got a goal and two assists. Kenney, Kate McGarrity, Ashley Scalzo and Cindy Brownson earned one goal apiece, with Steigerwald joining Scalzo in the assist column.

J-D, who saw last Tuesday’s game with Cortland snowed out, did return to action on Thursday and picked up its first win of the season, too, topping New Hartford 13-6.

Much of that margin was built in a 7-1 first half, J-D showing all kinds of diversity in its attack. By game’s end, eight different players had scored, none more than twice.

Carly Neugebauer, with two goals and three assists, led the push, while Carly Stone had two goals and two assists. Kopp, McKenna and Kailen Prosak finished with two goals apiece as Byrnes added a goal and two assists.

Fallon and Marissa Wilcox also found the net, with Jessica Wipper getting two assists and Julia Slisz one assist.

Even though it took the field a bit later than other local teams, Fayetteville-Manlius managed to avoid any weather-related postponements.

Thus, the Hornets were not delayed one bit when it visited Oswego for last Thursday’s opener, and it didn’t show any early jitters, either, taking a comfortable early lead and cruising to an 11-6 victory over the Buccaneers.

During a decisive first half, F-M bolted out to a 7-2 lead. Thus, it was able to nurse its margin throughout the second half, even as Oswego’s attack came to life, led by Alexa Healy’s trio of goals.

The Hornets looked for back-to-back wins on Saturday, against Suffern (Section I), but could not hold on to a big early lead, falling to the Mounties 14-13.

F-M did everything well in the early going, pushing the game’s tempo and establishing a 9-5 edge by halftime. Cara Esposito, with three goals and three assists, led the way, with Sam Hotchkiss and Lindsay Trachtenberg matching each other as they both got three goals and two assists.
