FREEPORT — Brooke Clement propelled Greely to a fast start Wednesday in a girls’ lacrosse game against Freeport.

Then Freeport fought back from an 8-2 deficit, closing to within a goal early in the second half, but the Rangers held on for a 13-10 victory.

Greely is 6-1 and ranked second in the Class B Heal points. Freeport, now 4-3, went into the game ranked third in Class C.

Clement, a junior, either scored or assisted on her team’s first five goals as the Rangers grabbed a 5-1 lead midway through the first half.

“She does great things for us,” Greely Coach Becca Koelker said. “We try to get her out from behind the net more, but regardless, when she touches the ball, she makes things happen.”

Freeport got a goal from Chloe Davidson, assisted by Taylor Dostie, but Greely answered with three more goals for a commanding 8-2 lead with 7:02 left in the half.

Greely scored on its first eight shots.

“It was important for us to jump out to that early lead. It helped us control the tempo,” Koelker said.

Following a Freeport timeout, the Falcons won the draw control and moved down field for a goal by Dostie, on a pass from Jessie Driscoll.

Freeport quickly added three more goals, closing to within 8-6 on a goal by Taylor Rinaldi, again set up by Dostie.

“Once we started scoring, we realized we could play with them,” Rinaldi said. “Wish we could have started that sooner, but it gives us a lot of confidence to go out play with a team like that.”

“I probably should have called a timeout a little sooner than I did, but I sometimes like to have them try to work it out,” Freeport Coach Marcia Wood said. “We just talked in the timeout about how we can continue putting pressure on them and the goals would come.”

Greely’s Ellie Holt got her second goal of the half to make it 9-6 at halftime. But Freeport’s Davidson and Margaret Perrotta opened the second half with goals that cut the lead to 9-8.

Clement then scored the next two goals, with assists from Jen Spencer and Sam Goldburg.

Clement finished with four goals and four assists, running the offense from behind the net.

“I like to hang out there. It lets me see the field and I’m able to look for my teammates,” Clement said.

Greely goalie Hannah Perfetti came up with some key saves late in the game to secure the win. Holt recorded three goals, and Greta Van Curan and Jayme Morrison each added a pair.

As has been the case throughout the season, the Falcons spread their scoring around, getting two goals each from Rinaldi, Davidson, Allison Greuel and Emma Carter. Dostie had a goal and three assists.

“We talked about it after the game,” Wood said of her team’s effort against a strong Class B team. “While some were not happy with the loss, we all realized that this is a good step for us and hope we can continue carrying this on for the rest of our schedule and into the Class C tournament.”
