  • Published in Sports

POTOMAC – The Churchill Bulldogs kept the Wootton Patriots at bay for an 8-7 win in girls lacrosse Monday night, suppressing them to the last second after the Bulldogs came back from a point deficit.

It was a game filled with comebacks for both teams. The Patriots led for part of the first half, but then the Bulldogs went on a scoring streak up until they reached eight points.

Once the eighth and last score was tallied for the Bulldogs, the Patriots clawed back and scored another three points, but could not net one more to at least send the game into overtime.

The Bulldogs ramped up their aggressiveness early into the first half, making a tightly-packed Patriot defense separate and exploiting the holes in it.

It was a resounding victory for a Bengal team that dominated the entire match and took advantage of a porous Cavalier defense. It used its speedy breakaways to get past defenders and either shoot from up close or pass to a teammate up close to cherry-pick.

ROCKVILLE – In the season opener for both the Wootton Patriots and the Clarksburg Coyotes girls’ lacrosse team, the Patriots dominated both halves against an inexperienced Coyotes squad to win, 18-3.

It was a stark difference in skill level from start to finish. The Coyotes had an open defense that left room for the Patriots to maneuver into and score. When the Coyotes did get close to goal, the Patriots suffocated them and forced them to play a passing game to make room.

“It wasn’t in our favor. We’re a very, very young team,” said Coyotes’ head coach Denise Miller.
