Girls Lacrosse State Semifinals

Class A: Baldwinsville (III) 7, Rush-Henrietta 6

A last-minute goal by Mia Pozzi sent Baldwinsville to the state championship game for the fifth time and ended R-H’s season with a heartbreaking defeat.

In a low-scoring second half, Pozzi gave the Bees a 6-5 lead with just over 23 minutes to play. The two teams would be scoreless for the next fifteen minutes until Ally Garrett netted the second of her two goals to tie the game at six.

The two teams remained deadlocked until Pozzi’s free position goal gave the Bees the lead with less than 30 seconds to play. The Royal Comets had a great chance to answer on the final possession of the game but Samantha Tanguay made the final of her seven saves to secure the win.

Garrett’s two goals led the Royal Comets, while Avery Roberts, Catrina Rowe, Danielle Garrett, and Megan Schillinger each had one goal. Lena Cox had two assists while Angelie Oechsle had five saves in net.

R-H’s season comes to an end with a 16-4 record and their second state semifinal appearance.
