Kelsey O’Brien had five goals and an assist as host Massapequa dominated MacArthur, 19-2 today in girls’ lacrosse action.
“This was a great team effort,” said Massapequa (11-1) head coach Megan Zimmer. “Everybody was able to get in today, I was happy with the offense and the defense being able to keep this team to only two goals.”
“We have a couple of tough games coming up; Baldwin, North Shore and Farmingdale so we are going to prepare for each one a day at a time. Hopefully we will win and then move on to the next one and we are just going to try to improve every practice.”
Massapequa went up by 10 goals at the 9:03 mark of the first half so the rest of the game the clock kept running. The Chiefs took a commanding 13-1 lead into the half. In the second half Zimmer cleared her bench, allowing everyone to get a chance to play.
Haley Burke had three goals and one assist and both Rory Sadoff and Olivia Batista had two goals.
“Today was a good overall effort by everyone on the team,” said senior attack O’Brien. “It helps that we go forward with great momentum behind us.
“We are definitely looking forward to having some big wins going into the playoffs but with the conference games coming up they are equally as important, so we will take these games one step at a time.”
Kristina Coiro and Amanda Gross both had one goal each for Mac Arthur.
“This season we are struggling a lot,” said Mac Arthur head coach Janine Bolzis. “But these girls never give up and they always fight to the end, and I’m proud of them.”
