The Canton Girls Varsity Lacrosse team opened league play strong with an 18-5 win over Saranac Lake Placid on Tuesday. The Bears were eager to get back on the field after missing last season. This showed in the first four minutes when the Bears quickly took a 6-0 lead.
Sophomore Etta Coburn led the charge with four goals and five assists. Coburn also helped the Bears win 11 draw controls. Hannah Reed, a Senior attacker, added three goals and one assist to the Bears lead while Camryn Sipher netted two goals and one assist, followed by Haley Stevenson putting away two goals. Sophomore Wyatt Newman also found two goals, making those the first of her career with the Bears Varsity team.
Vivian Coburn came out strong in her first league game of her career as an eighth grader, adding one goal and two assists. Claire Coakley, Megan Martin, and Lindsay Filiatrault all added one goal each while Phoebe Jaskowski added the first assist of her career.
“Being able to regroup and make some adjustments makes a huge difference and allowed us to play a much better game on Tuesday than we did in our non-league game Saturday. We’re happy with the way that we played, and it is a great opportunity to show that we can make adjustments- I’m happy with the effort from top to bottom,” stated Assistant Coach Rachel Holz.
The Modified girls also walked away with their first win against SLP. The Bears return on Friday with an away game in Plattsburgh at 6 p.m., followed by a Route 11 Rivalry game on Saturday at 1 p.m. on our home Roger Dusharm Field.
