VG lacrosse faced a determined Northwest Guilford High School in our second matchup of the season, which ended in a 9-4 Summit win. The Eagles battled back and forth with Northwest Guilford in the first half that ended with a Summit 4-2 lead. As the Summit defense continued to limit the Vikings offense, their offense continued to add to their lead. Four different girls contributed to this win including Quinn who scored 4, Alison scored 3, Mary Catherine and Mariella each scored 1. The Summit attack not only maintained an aggressive offense, but they re-defended well and caused several broken clears. Emelia’s tenacious riding resulted in multiple turnovers.
The Summit VG lax team had an impressive 10-3 win over West Forsyth High School. The Eagles experienced success at every phase of the game. Emma and Mariella won a significant majority of the draws and as a result the offense controlled the ball throughout much of the game. West Forsyth mounted a high pressure defense that forced Summit to move the ball quickly and respond with an aggressive attack. Nell led the offense by scoring the first 2 goals, followed by goals from Emma, Allison, and Quinn. The defense was well coordinated, communicated effectively, and limited West Forsyth to 1 goal in the first half. Early in the second half West Forsyth scored 2 goals, but the Summit offense was able to respond with goals from Emelia, May, Abby, and Mariella who scored 2. The Eagles were determined on defense, and they battled for ground balls. The result of their hard work and effort in practice was on display this afternoon.

The Summit defenders, led by Iris, worked together and executed a solid team oriented defense.

The Summit Varsity Girls Lacrosse Team is off to a solid start to the season with a 9-2 win over the Davie High School JV team. The girls settled in early and played good team defense. Adelaide made several key saves adding to a terrific Summit defensive effort. Defenders handled their 1 on 1 match-ups and provided well timed double-teams. They cleared the ball effectively, played with their heads up, and executed nice passes. Davie played hard and the Eagle’s entered the second half with a narrow 2 goal lead. In the second half the girl’s started to click on offense scoring in transition, with 1 on 1 dodges, and they had a few assisted goals. Multiple players contributed to the point total including Nell who led the scoring with 3 goals. The girls can be proud of their first effort of the season.
