Girls varsity lacrosse looks to take on the Quince Orchard Cougars today after silencing the Seneca Valley Screamin’ Eagles on Monday, winning against the Gaithersburg Trojans, and facing a tough loss to the Poolesville Falcons.

The girls’ victory against the Eagles was well-deserved win of 16-4. “We had a lot of good offensive plays,” junior Ciara Griffith said. The pace of the game was very quick with the ‘Rines scoring goal after goal. “We got the first goal and then Seneca got two goals, and then we got three or four goals,” Griffith added.  “That’s when we got our pace back and we got our hopes up.”

The girls had been anticipating the Gaithersburg game all year, practicing to be victorious after a crushing loss to the Trojans last year. The game was intense and the ladies came out on top with a valiant effort, winning 8-5. “It was fantastic,” senior Lilly-Jean Schlosser said. “It was definitely sweet revenge because we lost to them pretty badly last year.”

Going into the game all the girls had the same mindset: “We’re going to beat Gaithersburg. We all had it in our heads that we were going to win,” sophomore Fiona Franke said. The girls came out with a lot of energy and were not afraid of being aggressive against the Lady Trojans.

After the victory, the girls were ecstatic. “We were all very excited, like we were happy crying,” Schlosser said. They came back, beat their rivals, and showed them that the Lady ‘Rines are a force to be reckoned with.

On Monday, April 4, the girls played against the Poolesville Falcons. Even though they lost, the girls fought hard throughout the game. “We only held them to [four goals] in the second half and that’s something we’ve never done before,” Schlosser said.

Going into the game, the girls didn’t believe they would be victorious, but they “were all a little worried to begin with because Poolesville is a very good team, but we all decided that it was a game that we could all learn from,” Schlosser said. “So [we had] to go out there and try our hardest, and everyone definitely did. We put our all into that, and that definitely showed.”

The second half of the game, the girls really came back and went on a hot streak, scoring three goals in only 39 seconds. It has been a great start to the season for the ladies and they are expecting to continue their success through the rest of the season.  

Come out and support the Lady Rines’ at home, tonight, when they face off against the Cougars and don’t forget to show our Watkins Mill spirit!
