Its offense was its best defense for the Weston High girls lacrosse team in a pair of games last week.The Trojans, who netted nearly 70 goals in their first four games of the season, were hard for Lauralton Hall to contain on Tuesday, April 10. Focusing on one player would not work for the hosts as the Trojans outscored the competition 15-12 in Milford.
Once again the Trojans turned to several players on attack. Nicole DeCanio, Catie Ledwick, Stephanie Thompson (two assists) and Lindsay Koch all led the team with three goals apiece.
Fran Holmes netted two and had five assists. Grace Mattison scored one goal and Alexa Werner had one assist.
Carolyn Figliola made 14 saves in goal for Weston.
Back on the road two days later, the Trojans had plenty left over when they visited Pomperaug. This time two players in particular plagued the competition in a 22-11 win.
One was Holmes, who netted eight goals. She also had three assists. Koch also had a big day with six goals with one assist.
Ledwick scored three goals with three assists while Thomson (two assists) and Werner (one assist) scored two apiece. DeCanio scored one with two assists.
Mattison also had one assist.
Figliola made four saves in goal for Weston.
Weston’s attack cooled down a bit on Monday when it visited Stamford. Defensively it surrendered fewer goals than in either of its earlier contests but came up short in a 10-7 loss, its first of the season.
Ledwick led the Trojans with three goals. She also had one assist. Koch scored two.
Thomson and Holmes each scored one, the latter also getting an assist.
Figliola made 10 saves in goal for Weston, now 4-1. It visits Bethel today (Thursday) at 4, hosts Trumbull on Monday at 5:30 and is home to Stratford on Wednesday, also at 5:30.
