Rockford girls lacrosse ends first week of season 2-0

Rockford’s girls lacrosse team raced out to a quick 2-0 record before leaving on spring break. It took the Rams 13 seconds to tally their first goal of the season and 1:10 to lead 3-0 in their season opener against Lansing Waverly.

The game quickly turned in to a rout as the Rams piled on the goals, leading at the half 14-1. Seven girls scored for the Rams and two more added assists. Leading the way for Rockford was Erika Neumen with five goals and two assists, followed closely by senior Kendra Winicki, who tallied four goals and two assists. Rounding out the Ram scoring were Isabelle Vickers with three goals and two assists, Meghan Datema with three goals and two assists, Rosie Morrison with three goals, Morgan Stage and Carly Dew with a goal each, and an assist each from Tara Pluger and Kendall Short.

The Rams were dominant on the draw and loose balls with the middie line of Datema, Kyleigh Egnatuk and Neumen and attack player Vickers. The group tallied 20 ground balls as they dominated the mid-field. Jenna Chaffee and Lauren Whitfield split time in goal, only allowing three goals, as they were protected by Short, Kendall Carr, Kelli Raymond and Hannah Maroe on the defensive end.

The Lady Rams kept the heat on Williamston Haslett on a cold night, downing the visitors 16-3. Eight players scored for the Rams, led by Neumen with five goals and two assists. Also scoring for the Rams were Datema with three goals, Vickers with three goals, Winicki with four assists, Egnatuk with a goal and two assists, Dew with a goal and an assist, and Stage, Pluger and Amber Livingston with a goal each.

The Rams were again dominant on the draws and loose balls. Carr had a standout game on the defensive end with four draw controls, three ground balls, and two caused turnovers. Chaffee picked up the win in goal with four saves.

The Rams return after spring break with a home game against Grand Rapids Christian on Wednesday, April 11, and then their conference opener at Grand Rapids Catholic Central on Friday the 13th.
