Varsity girls’ lacrosse beats Sycamore

The Mason varsity girls’ lacrosse team put up a victory against the Sycamore Aviators on Thursday with an 11-9 win. Senior attack captain Kylie Yancey put up 3 goals for the comets and said that it was the patience of her offence that aided the 11 goals.

“The offence was really controlled which was unusual for us,” Yancey said. “We just held our heads on our shoulders and took really strong one-on-ones which was awesome.”

After Sycamore put up the first point, the Comets gained the lead back quickly and held it most of the game. The entire second half of the game went back and forth: a tied game or a Comet lead, and with two minutes left in the game the Comets scored their last point of the game, holding the score at 11-9.

Yancey said that after the first half the comets 5-2 lead and said the team was confident yet aware they still had another 20 minute battle awaiting them.

“After the first half we felt really good,” Yancey said, “We knew the game was in our control, which was most important, but we also knew that Sycamore is a [solid] opponent: we couldn’t just walk it off, we had to come back [in the second half] even stronger.”

The Comets still have an undefeated season, and Yancey said that Sycamore was one of the tougher opponents this year. She said that the energy in the locker room after the game was incomparable.

“It feels so fantastic, it feels like everything we’ve ever worked for has finally paid off,” Yancey said, “There is no other feeling like it.”
