YARMOUTH — The Kennebunk girls’ lacrosse team ended the regular season Wednesday night with its biggest win of the season.

The Rams beat Yarmouth 8-6 to nail down the top seed in the Western Class B playoffs.

“This really gives us momentum going into the playoffs,” said Jenny Bush, who scored her second goal of the game to send the Rams into the lead for good 13 minutes into the second half. “It really lifts us up a lot going into the playoffs.”

The win followed losses during the past week to Waynflete and Greely.

“We knew we had to come out tough,” said Bush, who snapped a 5-5 tie with her second goal. “We couldn’t come out flat.”

Exactly three weeks before, the Clippers scored three goals late in the second half to pull out a 9-6 win against the Rams in Kennebunk.

“It was not the same game plan and my defense was a lot tighter (this time),” Kennebunk Coach Annie Barker said. “We knew who their shooters were and who they were going to go to. We really studied up on it.”

The Rams (9-3) seemed to be extremely patient when they possessed the ball.

“Possessions are very, very important in lacrosse because if you lose possession the game can change in a heartbeat,” Bush said.

The loss didn’t hurt Yarmouth’s standing in the Eastern Class B Heal point standings. The Clippers will go into the regional tournament as the top seed, but the Rams did snap their 10-game win streak.

“They wanted it more than we did,” said Yarmouth Coach Dorothy Holt. “Clearly (the game) meant more to them than it did to us.”

Yarmouth finished the regular season with a 10-2 record.

“This proves to the girls that we need some work to do,” Holt said. “Nothing’s going to come easy. Every team has won and every team has lost, and every team is beatable.”

The score was 4-4 at the end of the first half.

The game remained scoreless until Molly Maguire converted a feed from Caitlin Teare into the Clippers’ first goal more than 14 minutes into the game.

Olivia Sandford and Bush scored fewer than three minutes apart to propel the Rams into the lead with fewer than nine minutes left in the half, but Yarmouth regained the lead when Lane Simsarian and Grace O’Donnell scored fewer than a minute apart.

With less than five minutes left in the first half, Sandford scored her second goal to forge a 3-3 tie, but Shannon Fallon scored 16 seconds later to send the Clippers back into the lead.

Kyra Schwartzman scored with 23 seconds left in the half to make it 4-4.

Kennebunk took a 5-4 lead when Haley Fecko scored 61/2 minutes into the second half. After Fallon tied the score with her second goal six minutes later, Bush, Carly Sandler and Schwartzman scored to make it 8-5.

The Clippers got a goal from Emma Torres with 3:17 left to complete the scoring.

“We had some critical fouls and turnovers in key situations, and that’s what it really came down to,” Holt said.

“They made fewer mistakes than we did, and we now know what we have to do.”
