The Girls Lacrosse team did the honors of hosting the first OFA home game of the delayed Spring season on Wednesday entertaining Indian River at the Alton W. Elliott Athletic Complex.
The visiting Warriors (1-3) restricted OFAs highlights to the defensive end of the field as the Frontier League team received three-goal efforts from Brynee LaFave (3-1), Kelsi Nabywaniec and Sidney Black in posting a 13-3 win.
In Boys lacrosse action Salmon River downed OFA 24-3.
Our transition from defense to offense is still in the developing stage. We have a very inexperienced team and we have only had one outside practice, said OFA Coach Lauren Carroll of her team which will play 13 games in the next 22 days.
But we had some good performances today. Defensively Courtney Sherwin had some nice interceptions and Abby Marshall made some nice runs under pressure. Sky Hoover, Mackenzie Bresett and Danielle Guimond all played well in the midfield and Anna Couperus was really composed with the ball up front.
Couperus, Hoover and Guimond all scored single goals for the Devils and Bresett passed out two assists to back a 10-save goaltending effort from Marissa Foster.
Sara Mattingly scored twice and Courtney Trudeau and Alexandra Berge all tallied one goal with one assist to back Rebecca Monica who collected 13 saves.
