Plymouth’s Cathryn VandenBosch (No. 15) tries to escape the defensive pressure of Salem’s Megan Finkbeiner (No. 44) during Wednesday night’s varsity girls lacrosse match.

Wednesday night’s tight defensive battle between Park varsity girls lacrosse rivals went Plymouth’s way as the Wildcats earned a 6-5 victory over Salem.

The Kensington Conference contest was played on the varsity turf field at Plymouth-Canton Educational Park.

Marissa Cirino and Natalie Nowicki each scored two goals for Plymouth with Michelle Burke and Cathryn VandenBosch also scoring.

A key to the win was excellent team defense anchored by the play of goalies Erin Oleszczak (five saves) and Elizabeth Elliott (four saves).

Other excellent defensive work was turned in by Shelby Strawn, Sarah Curtis, Elizabeth O’Donohue and Hannah-Renee Figley.

For Salem (3-5, 1-2), Andi Marthaler registered three goals while Leah Tardiff and Joslyn Longe each tallied one goal each.

Plymouth (4-2, 1-2) outshot Salem 21-14, with Rocks’ sophomore goalie Maddie Johnson making 15 shots.

“Plymouth is a strong team,” Salem head coach Dave Medley said. “I know their kids have worked hard in the off season and have a good record this season to show for it.

“… We came up a little short, but we played more like we’re capable of playing.”
