Host Everett gets ready for a rematch against Medford at Seven Acres later today
The fledgling Everett High School girls lacrosse team (0-7) remains winless, but their attitude is still healthy as they know they are at the beginning stages of something that will continue to grow to give their successors more options to play a sport in the future.
On April 27, the Everett girls lost to host Medford, 12-1. Amanda Verterio scored the lone Everett goal on a solo effort.
“The highlight of this game for us was goalie Khadija Ailane. She made 23 saves,” said coach Christina Buckley, “while we had 10 shots on net throughout the game.”
The Everett girls then dropped an 11-3 decision to the rival Highlanders at Somerville’s Dilboy Stadium the very next day.
Verterio paced the team’s offensive attack with two goals. Katherine Guzman notched the other Everett tally. Sophia Sousa was credited with one assist.
Coach Buckley was pleased by the fact that her players, especially those on defense, held the Highlanders to just two goals in the second half.
The Tide will get another chance to play Medford later today, May 5, this time on their home turf at Seven Acre Park, starting at 4 p.m. Almost one week later on May 11, the Mustangs will return to Seven Acres to take on their Everett counterparts after Somerville pays them a visit three days earlier on May 8. Both games will also begin at 4 p.m.
