BATH – Dakota Foster had three goals and three assists, and Corinne O’Connor and Lydia Caputi added three goals each Friday as Brunswick beat Morse 13-8 in girls’ lacrosse.

Foster scored three of the first four goals for Brunswick, which led 6-2 in the first 11 minutes.

“Their goalie (Crystal Leavitt) was very good, but we worked on possessing through the midfield,” said Foster. “We wanted to transition out of the defense, and our passing through the middle was real strong.”

After Leavitt blocked close bids by Caroline Wild and Foster, O’Connor fed Caputi, who cut in front and scored on a bouncer to make it 1-0 at 2:58.

Foster made it 2-0 off a loose ball before Sadia Crosby answered for Morse at 5:36.

Foster scored the next two, taking a feed from Caputi for a goal, then converting a Wild assist for a 4-1 lead.

Tori Field scored for Morse (3-2) off another free possession, but Kelsie Jenquine of Brunswick (4-2) got one on a free possession and Annie Kelly made it 6-2 with an unassisted goal.

“We had great ball movement through the middle in the first half,” said Dragons Coach Beth Caputi. “We had a lot of wide-open looks, but their goalie is very brave and made some real nice saves.”

After Lindsey Watts scored off a loose ball for Morse, Suzannah Smith, O’Connor and Caputi answered to make it 9-3.

Watts scored twice in 30 seconds, first racing through the defense after Shannon Rice’s long pass, then taking advantage of a turnover near the net.

But Brunswick goalie Molly Herman blunted any further momentum by stopping Field on a free possession bid and following with an excellent point-blank save to rob Christina Stuart.

“Molly is a very strong keeper,” said Caputi, “and those were important saves.”

Goals by Caputi and O’Connor made it 11-5 at the break, and O’Connor added another early in the second half. But Field scored twice and Crosby once to pull Morse to within 12-8 with 8:29 remaining.

“We kind of got caught up in their comeback,” said Foster, who fed Kelly for the final goal with 46 seconds left, “but Coach told us we had eight minutes left and to play like it was 0-0.”

“We made a few mistakes,” Ca-puti said, “but we did a good job of forcing them to make passes they didn’t want to make. We’re learning to trust each other.”

“They’re well-coached and they did a real good job of catching and throwing, and they play a quicker game than we’re used to playing,” said Morse Coach Linda Levesque. “But I thought once we got our feet under us, we were able to generate some pressure.”
