On Wednesday, April 5, the Girls’ Varsity Lacrosse team won their game against Boston Latin with a score of 16-4. Displaying strong teamwork and strategies, WA had other team members and the audience cheering with every goal they scored.

The first half started with WA scoring the first goal of the game in the first minute. They dominated the beginning of the game with a strong offense, and continued to score regularly as much as Boston Latin tried to stop them.

An overwhelming majority of the goals in the first half were scored by WA, with players such as sophomore Abby Katz and senior Cat Mahanna excelling on the field. Boston Latin managed to score with three minutes left, and the score at halftime was 12-1 with WA in the lead.

The Ghosts once again scored the first goal of the second half, in the first four minutes. Boston Latin put out a stronger game this time, with the teams alternated possession a lot more in contrast with the first half. WA was not able to score as much in this half because of the stronger defense Boston Latin displayed.

Both teams scored a few points throughout the half and showed strong offensive and defensive skills, especially by the goalkeepers junior Britta Cianciolo and senior Katarine Franz. However, WA did not allow Boston to get by too many times, and the Ghosts ended up victorious.

Coach Julie Olivier was satisfied with how the team played. She recognized Katz and Mahanna, as well as sophomore Morgan Freud for playing well. She also noted Cianciolo and Franz for excelling in goalkeeping.

Olivier mentioned that Boston Latin was a team they had played before and that their lacrosse program was relatively new, so WA had to adapt to their playing style.

“We needed to work on our plays, our spacing, our fundamentals, and the girls, I believe, did do what I had asked them,” said Olivier.
