Sophomore Lindsay Reynolds netted 11 goals and added two assists to lead the Bow girls’ lacrosse team to a 19-8 win yesterday at home over Goffstown (3-4).
It’s been a tough season for the Falcons (2-7), who hadn’t won a game since April 11, when they beat Timberlane, 15-5. Defense has been a large part of the problem for Bow, which was giving up 17.7 goals per game before tightening things up against the Grizzlies. The Falcons held Goffstown to four goals in the first half and senior goalie Mikayla Allen finished with nine saves.
Bow’s offense also struggled to start the season, finishing in single-digit goal totals in four of its first five games. But the scoring has started to come around lately as the Falcons scored 22 and 14 goals in their previous two games, and that upswing carried into yesterday’s affair.
While Reynolds and her 11 goals was the clear highlight, four other Bow players registered their name in the scorebook. Freshman Amanda Murray finished with three goals and two assists, senior Kelsey Mumford potted three goals, freshman Julia Currier had one goal and one assist and senior Megan Lighthall added a goal.
The Falcons will try to carry their newfound momentum on the road and into tomorrow’s contest when they travel to Dover (2-6).
