C-NS girls lax falls to West Genny in sectional final

Wildcats get payback for 2013 playoff defeat in Dome

— But that didn't help as, 15 seconds after the time-out, Donahue converted again. When Elmer converted with 8:29 left in the half, the Wildcats had scored four times in a span of less than 90 seconds.

For a brief moment, the Northstars tried to answer, as Bryar Cummings and Courtney Kenny scored to cut the Wildcats’ lead to 7-3. But WG’s Lexie Meager and freshman Mackenzie Baker scored late in the half to help the Wildcats take a 9-3 lead to the break.

Elmer personally made sure that C-NS could not catch up, as she notched five goals in the second half to give her seven for the night, the last of them coming with 2:23 to play. Elmer also had two assists as Donahue posted three goals and four assists.

C-NS finished its season at 16-2, and both defeats were to West Genesee. And now some talented seniors depart, including Kenny, Tiffany Ryan, Miriam Ghabarou, Katie Uva, Stephanie Liberati and Caitlyn Morris.

However, a strong group, featuring Duffy, Cummings, goalie Bri Stahr, Hanna Haven, Samantha Tortora, Mary Kate Bonnani, Lexxi Knoblock, Megan Caveny and Jenna Lippert, are back for 2015, and with West Genesee’s 17 departing seniors, a chance lies ahead for the Northstars to, finally, get back to the top.
