Pine-Richland girls lacrosse team wins a pair of games
The Lady Rams continued section play by traveling to Nichol's Field and facing the Sewickley Lady Panthers.
The Lady Rams scored first with a goal from Hannah Christenson but were soon answered by the Lady Panthers. The defense, led by Emily Thill, Monica Ewansik, Megan Rains and Maura Flaherty, held strong, and anything that did get through was stymied by goalie Kaelin Clogan. The Lady Rams won twice as many draws as Sewickley, with Hannah Christenson, Tess Drotar, Monica Ewansik, Kim Lubic and Maddy Collins chipping in for a 13-8 win.
Scoring for the Lady Rams were Drotar (five goals, one assist), Christenson (three goals), Collins (two goals, two assists), Leah Reimer (one goal), Taylor Thene (one goal, two assists) and Lubic (a goal).
