A young season means growth, and the Fords will certainly need to learn from this one. The girls’ lacrosse team gave a valiant effort Thursday night, as they once again embraced the chaos of mother nature during a torrential downpour. The Fords suffered their first home loss of the season at A.G. Cornog, with a 16-8 final against the Radnor Raptors. The Fords’ offense was yet again carried by Senior Old Dominion commit Emma Rowland, who had a hat-trick in back-to-back games. She was followed by Sophomore Hillary Elsner with two goals, as well as Sophomore Ava Pradelli with two of her own. 

The main story of the night, however, was the periodic waves of Raptor offense that put the Fords in a hole that was too deep to climb out of. The Raptors had two separate players with hat-tricks (Julie Breedveld and Amelia Reinholt). Their main source of offense came from Talyor Murphy as she had 4 goals on the night and was having her way with the defense from the opening draw. 

The good news for the Fords is that they don’t have too much time to dwell on this loss, as they are back at it at The Nog on Friday night against the 1-1 West Chester Henderson Warriors.
