Girls LAX looks to improve after slow start


Fisher LeVasseur

Caroline Muniz charges after a loose ball in the game against Triton


It is finally the spring, which means lacrosse season is in full swing. The girls Lacrosse team is excited for the season, and has already competed in several games.

The girls latest game was Tuesday, April 23rd, against Revere. The girls fought to the finish but ended up on the bottom with a 12-16 loss. This game started off slow for the Fishermen, as Revere scored 6 straight goals, but the girls picked it up and by halftime were only down 3.

All of the goals scored were by senior Captain Ruby Melvin, Captain Julia Kuhns, Caroline Muniz, and Jesse Alexander, each scoring three goals.

In the beginning of the second half, Muniz was tasked with face guarding Revere’s #12, Kiana Napolitano, and did a better job keeping her from the net.

Junior Lillie Favazza played a great game in net, consistently making key stops to slow Revere’s momentum. Caroline O’Leary and Natalie Favazza stood out on the defensive end by pushing out opposing scorers, and keeping them from effective offensive plays.

Though the Fishermen played a great second half, Revere was able to get ahead by 4 points in the last few minutes of the game.

“I thought we played one of our best games of the year,” said Head Coach Michael Lattof. “We showed great improvement and I see great things coming our way if we keep at it.”

This was Gloucester’s 4th loss, making their record 1-4, and their in-conference record 1-1. The Fishermen will play their next, in-conference game, against Winthrop on Friday, April 26th, at 4:00 PM at home field.
