Bishop Guertin girls 6-0 after lacrosse rout of Merrimack
NASHUA — The high-powered Bishop Guertin of Nashua girls’ lacrosse team improved to 6-0 with another dominant outing.
The victim this time was Merrimack, which fell by a 19-5 score and dropped to 2-3 on the season in Division II.
“I feel it’s really cool for us to say we walked away from a game with some serious competition and had eight different goal scorers,” said Bishop Guertin head coach Mandy Rogers. “I think that’s what we’ve been really proud of this year.”
Merrimack struck first in the game, getting a goal from Dana Mendes just 13 seconds into the contest.
It was all BG from there, however. The Cardinals rattled off five consecutive goals to build a lead.
The varied scoring was on display right away as Kyra Lowenberg, Kristin Cameron, Bryn Carroll, Caley Prunier and Averi Farhat shared the offensive wealth with goals early.
Mendes scored again with 14:45 remaining to make it 5-2, but BG once again put together a string of six goals to take an 11-2 lead into the intermission.
It was more of the same in the second half as the Cardinals cruised to the win.
Merrimack head coach Paul Drone knew his Tomahawks had faced some stiff competition, but said he was disappointed that his team made things easier for BG.
“We had a lot of self-made mistakes. We turned the ball over, dropped balls on cradles, we’ve got to be better on our shot selection,” Drone said. “BG is a really talented team and they’ve been playing well. They made minimal mistakes. We’re a work in progress and we try to get better each game.”
Cameron (three goals, three assists), Farhat (four goals, three assists), Carroll (four goals), Lowenberg (three goals) and Prunier (two goals, four assists) led Bishop Guertin.
Mendes scored three goals for Merrimack and Julia Perry added two.
