By on May 15, 2017

Five unanswered goals to start the second half doubled their lead as Brockport’s girls’ lacrosse team defeated Gates-Chili 12-7 in a steady rain.

Senior Emma Moulton gave the Blue Devils an early 1-0 lead with a free possession tally just 39 seconds into the contest.

Leah Daly made it 2-0 at 3:23 of the first half when she intercepted a pass at midfield and charged to the net. Three minutes later, Moulton helped make it 3-0 Brockport as she stepped into the passing lane to create a turnover and found Daly for the goal.

After Gates-Chili scored, Moulton completed her hat trick with a free possession goal at 14:23 and using a spin move before putting the ball just inside the post at 19:24 to put Brockport ahead 5-1.

The Spartans scored twice before Brockport senior Erika Ruggieri found Daly alone in front with just one second remaining in the half for a 6-3 lead.

Daly won the opening draw of the second half and drove to the net just 15 seconds in to start Brockport’s five goal run.

Ruggieri hit the upper left corner of the net at 2:49, Christina Middleton scored with an assist from Moulton at 5:21 and junior Lizzy Schultheis scored on a scoop shot off an assist from Moulton at 7:14.

Daly teamed up with Moulton to complete the scoring run at 9:29 and give the Blue Devils an 11-3 advantage.

The Spartans scored two goals a little over a minute apart before Schultheis found Ruggieri to make it 12-5 Brockport. Two late goals by Gates-Chili made the final 12-7.

Moulton finished with a seven point game with four goals and three assists while Daly had four goals and one assist and Ruggieri a three-point effort with a pair of goals. The defense of Sara Dempsey, Maddie Eggenberger and Rowan Grady accounted for eight of Brockport’s 19 ground balls in the contest to help the Blue Devils to their second win of the season.
