Under first-year Head Coach Amy Rotger, the Revere High School girls’ lacrosse team seems to be making noticeable improvement. The Patriots opened their 2022 season with three games in three days late last week. The trio of back-to-back road contests ended with one victory – a 9-6 triumph at Somerville last Friday. Revere dropped its season-opener at Gloucester by a 16-2 count last Thursday, but that game was more competitive than the score indicated. Revere fell to 1-2 overall after losing to Cambridge last Saturday.
In the win at Somerville, Angela Huynh scored four times, followed by two goals by Skyla DeSimone and one each from Hadia Bellemisch, Lynberlee Lang and Zoey LeGrand. Goalie Aya Elkawakibi played well in net to earn the victory.
Rotger said the Somerville victory was a great team effort. “We are just continuing to work to get better and improve,” she said.
In the loss at Gloucester, the Patriots trailed 7-1 at halftime but managed to threaten the Gloucester end on numerous occasions. The home team’s goalie came up with several key saves to keep Revere at arm’s length. Gloucester was able to take advantage of its scoring opportunities and pulled away in the second half.
Other members of this year’s team include: Dania Alvarez, Sophia Zari, Briana Mendieta, Gweneth Ke, Hana Aklog, Emanuelle Menezes, Angelina Marin, Melisa Devedzic, Leena Menkah, Dianne Mancio, Marianna Tamayo, Chantal Fontanelli, Shirley Rodriguez and Mariah Rogers.
The road show continued for the Patriots as they traveled to Georgetown on Friday. They continue on the road to face Medford on Tuesday, April 12. Revere plays its first home game on Friday, April 15, at Harry Della Russo Stadium.
