DALLAS TWP. – With the Wyoming Valley Conference Division 2 girls lacrosse lead on the line, Lake-Lehman passed a test from its Back Mountain rival by improving its passing game.
The defending champion Black Knights broke a halftime tie on the way to a 12-7 victory Monday.
“In the second half, the girls played more as a team,” Lake-Lehman coach Ron Strohl said. “They became more about passing, which is what I talked about in the beginning of the season.
“This is an aerial game.”
Lake-Lehman used the win to improve to 2-0 and take over first place. Dallas dropped to 3-1.
Strohl hoped the second half was a sign that his team is grasping how he would like to see its play evolve.
“They slowed down, brought the game to them, started looking for those open passes and started moving the ball down the field,” he said.
Alicia Galasso led the win with three goals.
Kate Roberts and Jess Evans each had two goals and an assist. Katie Strohl and Hallie Jenkins also had two goals each. Alexis Barker had a goal and an assist.
Grace Butler made nine saves in the win.
Sam Delamater led Dallas with four goals. Kate Kapral and Mindy Ratchford each had a goal and an assist while Lauren Delamater had a goal.
