Germantown’s Girls LAX Teams Clash in Playoff Tune-Up
Northwest girls lacrosse hosted Seneca Valley on Monday in the last regular season game for both squads before the playoffs start on Wednesday. The Jags bested the Eagles 15-9, but the game was a good tune-up for both teams. Both teams played hard in some unseasonable late afternoon heat.
The Lady Jags came into Monday with a three game losing streak and struggling to put the ball in the net, scoring only 16 goals in those three games. On Monday, the Jags had five girls scoring column, three with four goals each.
While Seneca Valley continues to struggle with a young squad, which graduated 14 seniors last year, but against the cross-town rivals the Eagles were able to score goals than in recent games.
Northwest jumped out to an early lead, and take a 9-5 lead into halftime. While Seneca Valley would continue to pressure scoring goals and cutting the lead at times. The pressure came in the form of senior attacker Alexis Davis. Davis, an All-County Honorable mention last year was the Eagles top scorer slicing and dicing for six goals in the loss.
The Jags were able to transition the ball from defense to offense very effectively, quickly moving the ball using long passes to gain entry to the attack zone, where the attacking players could work the ball to the goal.
