Girls lacrosse Wildcats edge Pittsford

WG, atop state rankings, improves to 7-0

— But WG would need those goals. Pittsford, in a frantic scramble, scored three times in the final 90 seconds to cut the margin to one, but the last of those goals came with four seconds left, too late to do anything with the ensuing draw before the horn.

The Wildcats’ second regular-season encounter with Liverpool in an 11-day span took place last Monday night at LHS Stadium, and like their first game April 4 in Camillus, it ended with WG on top by an 11-4 margin.

Back in that first game, the Wildcats shut out the Warriors in the first half. That didn’t happen here as WG, playing its fourth game in seven days, could not get the ball enough to control tempo, allowing Liverpool to hang around and only trail 5-3 at the break.

But the second half was another matter. WG won draws, settled into its attack and spread production around, eventually outscoring the Warriors 6-1 in those last 25 minutes.

Michaela Ciciarelli earned her first three-goal hat trick as a varsity player. Elmer scored twice, adding a pair of assists, while Hildebrandt and Collins matched that two-goal output. Graveline had three assists and Riley Donahue added two assists, with Osterdale and Cailyn Negus also scoring.
