Rockford Girls’ Lacrosse Team wins two, loses one

LaCrosse-MeghanConsistent scorers Erika Newmen, Meghan Datema, and Alex Vandermolen each brought three goals for Rockford resulting in a 14-9 win against Forest Hills United on Monday. “We really took control of the game in the first half,” Rockford coach Mike Emery said, “and they tried to slow our transition game down in the beginning.”

Rockford continued their week playing against Caledonia and came out on top 16-9 thanks to a strong defense and an offense led by Kyleigh Egnatuk’s four goals and five assists and Alex Vandermolen’s four goals and one assist. Attack player Isabelle Vickers who contributed three goals said, “We’ve really connected as a team over the season and everyone contributed, which helped us come out with the win.”

Saturday, Rockford hosted Loyola Academy of Illinois. Loyola handed 3 losses to three well-respected teams in Michigan, beating Catholic Central, Rockford, and Brighton. Rockford lost 20-3 despite goalie Katie Elwell’s 20 saves. Attack player Amber Livingston hopes the team will take away some tips of what to practice on this week, “They had a tough offense with plays that we don’t see very often. It was definitely a learning experience for us. Our team will practice this week on those areas to become stronger for playoffs.” Erika Neumen, Kendall Short and Alex Vandermolen each scored one goal for Rockford.

Rockford hosts the number one team in Michigan, East Grand Rapids, on Wednesday, May 8, at the Ted Carlson Memorial Stadium.
