FREEPORT — Waynflete scored six goals in the first 10 minutes Thursday and went on to a 14-6 victory against Freeport in a schoolgirl lacrosse game.

Nina Moore scored four goals to lead the Flyers (8-4).

“We came out strong and we knew we had to come out strong to begin,” Moore said.

“Today we put together everything we’ve been working on, so it felt good.”

The Flyers began to show their offensive capability early in the first half with Isabel Canning, Christian Rowe and Helen Gray-Bauer all scoring in the first five minutes.

With 17:14 left in the first half, Moore scored her first goal, charging down half of the field to find the net and give Waynflete a 4-0 lead.

“We really wanted to work on connecting with the ball and working on our transition,” Waynflete Coach Cathie Connors said.

“They did it today and I was very happy to see that.”

After Canning scored her second goal of the game with 16:27 remaining in the first half, freshman Lydia Giguere added a goal with 9:23 left to make it 6-0.

The Falcons (6-6) finally scored with 9:02 remaining in the half when midfielder Chloe Davidson collected a goal from 3 yards out to make the score 6-1.

A pair of goals by Falcon freshman Taylor Rinaldi brought Freeport within 6-3, but Waynflete answered with a pair of goals to take an 8-3 lead into the half.

The Falcons scored the first goal of the second half when Courtney Broderick connected from 5 yards to cut their deficit to 8-4.

But that’s when Waynflete began to pull away for good.

With 21:07 left in the game Giguere scored from 5 yards, and with 14:15 remaining, Beata Vest found the net to increase the lead to 10-4.

With 12:09 remaining, Moore connected on her third goal of the game – a hard shot from 8 yards to all but put the game away for Waynflete.

Moore, Rowe, and Olney added goals before time expired for the Flyers, who have found themselves in a position to do some damage as the fourth seed in the upcoming Western Class B playoffs.

“We’re young, so every day we’re working on seeing the field and anticipating the next play,” Connors said. “They’re doing that so it’s really exciting to see.”

Freeport scored two more goals in the last six minutes, but couldn’t compete with Waynflete, which used an effective mix of aggressive offense and solid defense.

“We’ve been working on our offense a lot and also trying perfect our zone defense,” Moore said.

“It was a very tough (regular-season) schedule. We’ve had some good and bad games, but looking ahead I think we’ll be successful (as the playoffs begin).”
