The Arlington High School girls lacrosse team was hungry for a win.
Hosting Wappingers on Friday, the Admirals satisfied their appetite with a 10-4 win over the Warriors. Arlington was coming off a Conference I League A loss to Mahopac.
“We wanted a nice bounce-back game,” Arlington coach Dan Schmitt said. “It was a nice job for us. We had a complete game and came out focused.”
Abby Carlin was one of the most focused Admirals. She scored four goals and caused four turnovers. Schmitt said she “had a big game.”
“Abby set us up nicely,” Schmitt said. “She shined both offensively and defensively.”
Teammate Danielle DiLorenzo provided some backup with three goals, while Danielle Heady scored twice and added an assist. Lauren Tarnowski added a goal, which Schmitt described as a “big boost” for the Admirals. Jordan Smith made one assist.
The defense also played a pivotal role in the win.
“It is an integral part of our team. They won that game for us,” said Heady of the Admirals’ defense. “They played amazing and held Jess Lasaponara to one goal, and that’s amazing because she is going to play lacrosse at Marist.”
Up by three goals at halftime, Schmitt told his girls to take care of the little things.
“We reiterated draws, possession and ground balls,” Schmitt said.
Goalie Maryn Lowell made seven saves. Claire Otis played the final three minutes and made two saves.
“It was a nice team win,” said Schmitt, whose 2-2 Admirals host Monroe-Woodbury at 3 p.m. Saturday.
Jenna Fusco scored two goals for Wappingers. Jessica Lasaponara had one goal and one assist while Alyssa Carpentieri contributed one goal.
Wappingers visits Walter Panas in Cortlandt Manor at 3 p.m. Saturday.
