A balanced attack has paid big dividends for the Weston High girls varsity lacrosse team so far this season.
The Trojans can count on a number of players to put the ball in the net. Such has made it all the more difficult for opponents to shut them down.
Visiting Masuk last Tuesday, April 9, the Trojans counted on five to get the job done. They kept a safe distance from the competition in a 12-7 win at Benedict Field.
“They played a great game,” said Weston head coach Megan Borman.
Junior Lindsay Koch has emerged as Weston’s primary scorer this season. She led the team with five goals and had two assists last Tuesday.
Others have stepped up as well, Morgan Moubayed netted three (one assist) and Taylor Swanson scored two.
Both Stephanie Thomson (two assists) and Fran Holmes (seven assists) scored one.
“What’s great about this team is if you stop Lindsay from scoring you’re going to have to deal with others,” said Borman.
Kristin Caolo made three saves in goal for the Trojans.
Weston turned its attack up a notch two days later when it hosted Lauralton Hall. It became its highest scoring performance to date in an 18-8 win.
The Trojans counted on their usual scorers again. Koch had another five-goal, two assist outing to lead the attack.
Moubayed was not far behind her with four (three assists). Both Holmes (three assists) and Thomson (one assist) tallied three each.
Alexa Werner added two goals and Swanson had one . Each was credited with a pair of assists. Selena Lauria had one assist.
Leading Lauralton Hall was Weston resident Allison Carey with four goals. She also had an assist.
Caolo made five saves in goal.
Weston, now 3-1 overall, visits Joel Barlow today (Thursday) at 3 p.m., hosts North Branford on Saturday at 11 and is at Bunnell on Tuesday at 7.
