SCARBOROUGH — They call it a draw but it’s hardly a 50-50 proposition. Not when Kaitlin Prince is involved.

A senior, Prince is the last remaining link to Scarborough’s 2012 Class A state championship girls’ lacrosse team. After two seasons that ended in regional semifinal losses, Prince is poised to lead the fourth-seeded Red Storm on another title run.

They took a big step Wednesday with a 16-5 Western quarterfinal rout of No. 5 Gorham in large part because Prince kept winning draws to allow Scarborough to control the game.

Abby Corbin scored a career-high seven goals for Scarborough, which opened a 5-0 lead in the first eight minutes. Gorham scored twice in the final two minutes to make it 8-4 at halftime but couldn’t muster a shot for the first nine minutes of the second half as Scarborough made it 11-4.

The Red Storm (9-5) take a five-game winning streak into a rematch with top-ranked Massabesic in a regional semifinal Saturday in Waterboro.

“We’re ready to take whoever it is that comes our way,” said Scarborough first-year coach Michaela Wipfler. “The girls are already pumped up.”

Wipfler attributed Prince’s successful drawing to strength, wrist quickness and repetition of mechanics. Gorham Coach Mary Vaughan-Guimond noted Prince’s height and “those quick-twitch reactionary muscles.”

Prince, who won the first six and 16 of the game’s 23 supposed tossups, credited teammates Bailey Adams and Ellie Smith for boxing out opponents and gathering in loose balls.

“We work a lot in practice on the draws, calling (by numerical signal) where they’re going to,” Prince said. “I mean, I try and call where they’re going to go.”

Adams had a goal and two assists. Prince finished with four goals and five assists. Smith, a freshman playing midfield for the first time in place of an injured junior, contributed a goal and an assist in addition to her work on the edge of the center circle.

“Just before the game, Coach called me into her office and said, ‘What do you think about midfield?’ ” Smith said. “I was really unsure at first because I’ve played attack for my entire life. Defense is definitely not my strong point. But I think this game I … ”

“She crushed it!” interjected Prince.

Reagan Emerson and Marina Pappalardo each scored twice for Gorham (7-6), which lost 13-2 to Scarborough a month ago in their only previous meeting. Allison Sinnett made 13 saves to six for Sammi Shoebottom of Scarborough.
