The Stimson Middle School Girls Lacrosse team finished their season on a high note beating Candlewood Middle School 9-8 in battle that came down to the very last possession.  Amelia Hatton, Sammy O'Toole and Sydney Kahn led the scoring with 2 goals each while Mae Morelli, Alexa Brunneti, and Emily O'Mara each scored 1 goal.

The scoring was made possible by excellent passing and assists from Kristen Finnerty and Jenny Duclay.  The defense was led by Kayleigh McArdle, Anna Garziano, Cassidy Browne and Isabella Rombaldi.

Alyssa Chillemi, Alyssa Morisco and Kate Jenkins all turned in Strong performances.  Isabel Aquilino and Jessica Vesque each had 15 saves.  The play of the game came when Jessica Vesque made an incredible save with 10 seconds left on the clock and brought the ball out of the crease and controlled the ball while the final seconds ticked off the clock and the final horn sounded. 

The Girls Lacrosse team had a very successful season this year.  Their hard work, determination and most importantly their commitment to the team was undeniable.

“Under the leadership from our 8th grade captains Eleni Glodowski, Kayleigh McArdle, Emma Farrell and Grace D’Souza and 7th graders Kristen Finnerty, Emily O’Mara and Fiona Smith, the entire team contributed our success,” said Coach Rory Sherman.    As the season progressed, so did the girls stick work and game play. In each game the girls played better and better lacrosse. The girl’s hard work and determination really paid off.  They finished the season 2 and 7 against some really tough teams.  The climax of the season came when we beat Candlewood Middle School winning 12-6 the first time and then again 8-7 in a nail biter. 

“I could not be more proud of this year’s team.  It was truly my pleasure coaching them,” said Coach Sherman.  “8th graders– good luck at Whitman and 7th graders– I will see you next year.”
