For the fifth consecutive year, Dublin emerged as the RVAL Girls Lacrosse Champions. Dublin jumped out to a quick two goal lead. However, a determined Stoneleigh team played very aggressive defensively and tried to shut off two of the Dublin players that hurt them earlier in the year. After our early success, we struggled to get possession of ground balls as Stoneleigh battled intensely for each possession. However, when we were able to get the ball into the offensive zone, our ball and player movement led to a series of artfully created goals. Midway through the first period, Stella Davis began to dominate the face-off circle, leading to a series of unanswered Dublin goals and opportunities. At the break, Dublin led 11-3. We cruised through the second half, not allowing a second half goal. Amani Natson had seven saves in cementing the win.
The senior girls won the RVAL trophy in each of their years at Dublin, setting a high standard for their teammates who are not graduating.
