FREEDOM PLAINS – It was a “business man’s special” at Arlington high school Monday afternoon. The Arlington girls lacrosse team hosted Horace Greeley in a mid day non-league tilt and came away with an 11-9 win.
Dani DiLorenzo led the Arlington attack on offense with four goals. Rebecca Campos had three goals and an assist. Abby Carlin and Jordan Smith each contributed two goals and Sam Simonetty had 12 saves. It was Simonetty’s birthday.
Despite a 7-2 lead, Horace Greeley mounted a comeback thanks to several free shots awarded. The Quakers scored three unanswered goals to make it a two goal game, 7-5. But Jordan Smith scored off a pass from Abby Carlin to give the Admirals an 8-5 lead at halftime.
“We hadn’t played in 10 days”, noted Arlington head coach Dan Schmitt. “The girls were anxious to get out there and I liked their energy.”
While Arlington was not able to get a good flow on defense due to several whistles and starts and stops by the refs, Coach Smith was happy with the defense Arlington was able to play. “Bianca Asenza played really good defense as did sophomore Emily Mahon”
Arlington improves to 3-0 with the win, and goes on the road to face Putnam Valley on Tuesday.
