SOUTH BERWICK — Lindsey Poirier scored seven goals as second-seeded Marshwood dominated fourth-seeded Scarborough 16-3 to capture its first Western Class A girls’ lacrosse title.

“We were working on that, as far as isolating (Poirier),” said Marshwood Coach Bernie Marvin. “All seven (offensive players) can shoot and score down there so we were waiting for the slides but they never came so she had the green light.”

Poirier was a freshman the last time Marshwood (12-3) played in the Western Class A championship game, a loss to Scarborough.

Poirier, a senior, also lost to Scarborough this year in the Western A final in field hockey. Poirier enjoyed every last second of the revenge.

“Freshman year we didn’t really know what we were doing quite yet,” said Poirier. “But finishing it off and winning our senior year is amazing. And to do it with this team is out of this world.”

Poirier also chipped in with three assists.

“We’ve worked so hard to be here and I couldn’t be more proud. I don’t even know how to describe it,” said Poirier.

Hannah Costin scored five goals and Korinne Bohunsky added three goals for the Hawks.

“I was very nervous before the game,” said Costin. “Probably the most nervous I’ve ever been. But whenever I get onto the field and hear the first whistle, I try to keep calm. That’s what I did, I kept calm and collected and scored some.”

“It feels really good and we won as a team which is even better,” Bohunsky said. “Everyone was a part of it, from the bench all the way through. It was a beautiful thing.”

Scarborough finished 10-6.

With 10:25 left in the first half and Marshwood ahead 2-0, Scarborough goalie Sammi Shoebottom made what could have been a momentum-shifting save. Poirier busted out on a breakaway and had a great shot attempt up high but Shoebottom made a better save, getting her stick on the shot and deflecting it over the top of the net.

“That was an insane save,” said Poirier.

But just 40 seconds later, Poirier carried the ball across the middle from left to right and buried her shot short side to put the Hawks up 3-0.

“Our ride is awesome, our attack rides hard all through our midfield,” said Poirier. “To get the ball back that quickly and to capitalize is awesome.”

The Hawks continued rolling from there and scored five more goals to close out the half with an 8-1 lead.

Emily Kahler was terrific in net for Marshwood, making 11 saves.

“I have to give a lot (of credit) to my defense,” said Kahler. “I don’t see as many shots as any other team does because I have a fantastic defense who is always there and always helping out. The shots (other teams) do take – they force bad shots. That makes it easy one me, makes me look good.”
