AMHERST – Madison Learned scored five goals and had three assists to help lead the Souhegan High School girls lacrosse team to a 16-3 win Wednesday over Hollis Brookline.
Meggie Whitney added four goals and Jocelyn Donohue had three as the Sabers improved to 8-1 in Division I and 9-1 overall.
“Everyone is just doing well,” Souhegan coach Maren Petropulos said. “We don’t really have one or two scorers. In anyone given game, it might not be the same person the next day. For someone to come in and face-guard or say they’re going to take one player out, go for it. We have others. For a relatively young team, we’re deep.”
The Sabers also got a goal and two assists from Mickenzie Larivee, as seven different players scored. Souhegan goalie Megan Kolopsky made nine saves and Jamie Wallisch had three assists.
HB (5-2) struggled to score against the Sabers, missing on a few opportunities early in the game as Souhegan got out to a 5-0 lead.
“It would have pumped us up a little more to get more goals in the first half,” HB senior Caitlin Sweeney said. “We worked extra hard, we got to the field early so we could prepare. It wasn’t a lack of focus, it was just the fact that we played well, but they played better.”
The Cavaliers got two goals from Kasey Rich and Allie Kohler also had a goal. Erin Turner made six saves.
Souhegan returns to the field Friday at home in a non-division game against Bishop Guertin, while HB plays at Nashua North on Saturday.
