The Pioneer girls’ lacrosse team scored a convincing 11-5 win Thursday over host Huron as the Pioneers continued its dominate run over city opponents.
Pioneer Coach Zachary Maghes saw some good things from his club but admits there is still plenty of work to do in order to reach their goals.
“We are trying to figure many things out and there is only four weeks left in the regular season,” he said. “One of our biggest problems is we don’t know what playing together and for each other is really about. There is still too much me and not enough we.”
Maghas passed along plenty of praise to the River Rats for a solid effort.
“I’m so proud of Huron Coach Hayley Peach,” he said. “Huron has shown so much growth in one year under her command. They are really lucky to have a River Rat alum with that much passion for the sport and school pride coaching them.”
The Pioneers turned 29 shots into 11 goals for the game.
Reagan Malcolm, Tess Yuhas, Quinn Moffett and Ava Millman all scored two goals for the Pioneers. Karleigh Marable, Anna Muckstadt and Julia Hunter scored solo goals in the win.
Landon Harsch made four saves for the win in goal.
Marable, Moffett and Millman all had assists. The Pioneers caused 21 turnovers including a team-high six from Sarah Cohen.
They also had 14 of 18 draw controls led by four from Annelore Fleischmann.
Mairead Erhardt had two goals along with one draw control and one ground ball control for the River Rats. Ana Connolly had a goal; Georgiana Gunther had a goal and one ground ball control; Anna Scott had five ground ball controls; Gabriella Forman scored a goal for Huron and Jackie Mortell had five ground ball controls.
