Newberg making strides in girls lacrosse, beats Glencoe

NHS round-up


The Newberg girls lacrosse team suffered a sobering 13-3 loss to Sherwood in its first game back from spring break April 1, but made amends two days later by beating Glencoe for the first time in program history 14-6.

Eight different Tigers scored in the victory, led by Christina Bryan, who notched a hat trick to go along with five draw controls.

Freshmen Rebekah Stoltzfus and Lexi Barr added two goals apiece, as did Lexi Greer and Abby Turner, but just as impressive was the defensive effort, according to head coach Terry Paskett.

The effort on that side of the ball was spearheaded by Greer, Abby Reohr and Olivia Myers, all of who collected three ground balls to help Newberg earn its first win in Hillsboro Stadium.

“This game found us playing great team defense, good passing and ball control to allow eight of our young ladies to score,” Paskett said. “It was a great rebound win after the loss to Sherwood.”

The Tigers turned around to beat West Salem 7-5 Friday, again getting three goals and five draw controls from Bryan. Clarissa Barr, Sydney Kosmicki, Stoltzfus and Reohr scored one goal apiece in the win, which saw Myers and Reohr nab six and seven ground balls, respectively.

Kylie Duey and Caitlin Adams both spent time in net, with Duey snagging eight of the team’s 11 saves.

Unfortunately, Newberg was brought back to earth by state-title contender Wilsonville, which rolled to an 18-2 win Monday.

The Tigers will look for a better performance when they host the Bowmen at 7 p.m. Wednesday. then enjoy five days off before their next contest.
