Seton Catholic Central’s Maddie Williams had five goals and two assists and teammate Meaghan O’Brien added four goals and two assists as Seton CC built a big lead before holding on late for a 13-12 victory over host Chenango Forks in a Section 4 Girls Lacrosse Conference contest on Monday.
The Saints (1-1) led 9-7 at halftime and stretched their lead to 13-8 with five minutes remaining in the second half before Forks’ last-gasp comeback fell a goal short. Sierra Torillo had five goals and three assists to pace Forks (0-3).
Vestal 15, Horseheads 9: At Vestal, Devon McKercher scored four goals and added two assists and Nicole Lyons recorded three goals and three assists helping Vestal win its Section 4 game.
Noelle Patterson chipped in a hat trick for the Golden Bears (4-2), who led 7-5 at halftime and scored seven consecutive goals in the second half to pull away. Tatum Benesh and Crystal Powers scored three goals each for Horseheads.
Maine-Endwell 12, Union-Endicott 6: At U-E, Jillian Greene tallied four goals and Chelsea Cable and Dani Cronk each added three for M-E. Kayla Prosinki scored three goals and had an assist for Union-Endicott (0-4), which outshot the Spartans 27-19. Maine-Endwell goalie Hannah George made 14 saves.
Johnson City 11, Manlius Pebble Hill 9: At Johnson City, fast starts were the theme of the day for the Wildcats. Just 12 seconds into the first half, defender Sarah Espe won the faceoff, raced downfield and scored her first of three goals. That goal would set the tone for the first half as Johnson City (1-1) would take advantage and put themselves up 7-2 at the break. Eighth grader Sam Majewski would net a hat trick helping lead the Wildcats to the early advantage.
The second half began like a replay of the first. Espe again won the faceoff and ran down the field to find the back of the net only 12 seconds in, and the Wildcats were able to hang on from there.
