Everett girls lacrosse closes out the month at Somerville later today

  The Everett High School girls’ lacrosse team (0-6) got back to work this week after finishing up its school vacation workout schedule following a loss to Revere on Patriots’ Day, 10-1.

  The Crimson Tide is still looking to break into the win column in their inaugural varsity season, but as a team they are starting to score more goals. On Monday, April 24, they dropped a 13-4 decision to Malden at Pine Banks.

  Amanda Verterio paced the offensive attack with two unassisted goals. Sophia Sousa was credited with a solo effort against the Golden Tornadoes, along with Brigitte Reyes-Cortez after carrying the ball the length of the field.

  “Offensively, we were much more aggressive in this game,” said coach Christina Buckley. “We had a total of 14 shots on net, but were only able to find the back of the net on four of them.”

  “Defensively, we had a hard time stopping two of Malden’s offensive players, and as a result they scored all of their goals,” added Buckley. “We are definitely looking forward to facing them again later in the season [on May 19 at Everett’s 7 Acre Park].”

  The Everett girls close out the month of April on the road at Medford against the Mustangs on April 27 (after press deadline) and later today (April 28) against the Highlanders at Somerville’s Dilboy Stadium, starting at 4 p.m.
