Girls water polo finishes week with two conference wins

Morgan Longberg applies defensive pressure in Rockford’s win against West Ottawa.

After coming off a very successful tournament in Ann Arbor, the Rockford varsity girls continued their winning ways and defeated West Ottawa 15-4 on Monday evening, March 26. The Lady Rams have multiple offensive weapons and they were on full display with goals coming from six different players.

Leading the way for Rockford with five goals apiece were Casey Wolfer and Adrianna Craft. As expected, the girls turned in a fine defensive effort, which seems to be the cornerstone of this year’s team.

Maddie Levine scores against Grand Haven.

The Lady Rams are certainly defensive minded, but you would never know that after a dominating offensive performance against Grand Haven with a final score of 10-2.

At the end of the first quarter, Rockford took a commanding 4-1 lead with two goals from Craft, a goal from both Morgan Longberg and Abby Finlayson. An additional goal was tacked on by Maddie Levine in the second quarter and the girls never looked back.

Another strong performance was turned in by Ellianna Raymand in goal, limiting Grand Haven to two goals.

With a conference record of 3-0, the Lady Rams are building confidence but will certainly be tested with a tough OK Red conference schedule ahead of them. The girls will be back in action on April 10 at Grandville.
