Rosemount girls' lacrosse falls at home to Eastview
Rosemount girls' lacrosse struggled against Eastview at home on Tuesday in a 15-5 loss. The Irish were not able to get much going offensively outside of individual efforts by eighth-graders Sayla Lotysz and Emma Duchscherer and sophomores Larisa O'Neil and Delaney Smith.
The Irish trailed 5-2 at halftime, with both of their first-half goals coming on aggressive moves to the middle and great shots by Lotysz. Duchscherer scored a few minutes into the second half to make it 7-3 and O'Neil scored to keep it a four-goal deficit at 8-4. However, that was the closest Rosemount would come as the Lightning extended their lead. Smith scored the last goal for the Irish.
Eagan and Brainerd
The Irish bounced back from their loss to Eastview with consecutive wins over Eagan on Thursday and Brainerd on Friday, while also claiming the annual Clover-Cat Trophy with the win over the Wildcats. Rosemount beat Eagan 10-9 in double overtime after being tied at nine in regulation and after a scoreless first overtime. Scoring for the Irish were senior Britney Topor and Smith, each with a team-leading three goals, two from O'Neal as well as a goal each from Lotysz and Duchsherer.
The next day they demolished Brainerd 17-0 with goals from nine different players. Topor led all scorers with five goals (along with two assists), Duchsherer added three goals, and both O'Neil and sophomore Taylor Janssen had two. Lotysz, sophomores Grace Willmott and Regan Hansen, senior Claire Boyum and sophomore Gianna Freking all had one goal each.
