Bright lights: Darien girls lacrosse tops Staples for fifth win

Darien had points from eight different players, including four multi-goal efforts, used two different goalies, and received a strong overall effort in all facets of the game.

Patton's next chance at program history comes Tuesday at home against nonconference Denver ahead of Thursday's Senior Night contest with Watauga. Sophomore Bailey Grant (Chelmsford, Massachusetts/Chelmsford) posted 11 saves in the Skyhawks goal, adding six ground balls and a caused turnover. Tanner was flawless through five innings in the circle and added a game-high three hits at the plate, with her courtesy runner Brittany Powell scoring twice. It was now Wagner's turn to respond as the Seahawks unleashed yet another 5-0 run, capped by a score from Anna Belle Reilly, off of a Colford assist, with 6:05 left which put the Seahawks back on top, 11-10. Avery Weaver had two hits and stole a base and Emma Price had one hit and drove in three runs. The setback ended a two-game Wildcats' win streak. "We are moving in the right direction, which is a good feeling".

"We have a really big game on Monday against Garden City, and our coach was telling us to be tough, be as tough as you can be", senior co-captain Emma Jaques said.

Tazewell led with four goals, and Valentine tallied three.

Virginia scored back-to-back goals to begin the game, but Louisville would use a 4-0 run to lead 4-2.

Stonehill threatened to get back into the game with three-straight goals within a minute to pull within seven (12-5) with 19:38 still to play.

"We just relied on second nature", Wagner said. Shoemaker found Kelly driving for a score to take the lead.

Foard outshot Patton 13-5 and had seven corner kicks to the hosts' two.

Darien came out flying and, following goals by Ashley Humphrey and Ramsay just 27 seconds apart, had an 8-0 lead 8:44 seconds into the game. Granzier scored from McKelvy and Stratis got his second goal of the game midway through the second quarter.

The Patriots (4-4, 1-4 NWC) defeated West Caldwell on Wednesday for a second time this year, 7-2, before falling to South Caldwell by the same score on Friday.

Joshua DeRosa (3 goals, 1 assist) started the run when he took a pass from Granzier as he cut down the middle of the field, Granzier was the recipient of an unselfish pass by Reece Lagerquist 46 seconds later for a 5-2 lead with 8:06 left in the quarter.
