 The Medfield girls lacrosse Warriors hosted the Dedham Marauders on Monday, April 22, for their sole Tri-Valley League competition of the regular season. The Warriors secured a decisive victory against the Marauders, with a final score of 19-0. Under the leadership of captains and head coach Mary Laughna, the Warriors improved their season record to 8-2.

Kendall Herrick led the offensive charge with four goals, while Kelly Blake and Alex Profrock each contributed three goals. Ava Aldrich and Sarah Faust added two goals apiece, and Michaela McDonald, Maeve Kelly, Genna McDonald, and Stella Scobbo each contributed one goal for the Warriors.

In the first quarter, within the first three minutes, the Warriors established their presence on the field, executing their offensive strategy around the X. Kelly Blake opened the scoring for Medfield at 9:02, receiving a pass from Alex Proefrock and finding the back of the net. Building on this momentum, Kelly Blake and the Warriors scored eight goals in the quarter.

Throughout the second quarter, Medfield continued to dominate, extending their lead to 12-0 halfway through the period and triggering a running clock on the scoreboard. Kendall Herrick, with three of her four goals coming in the final six minutes of the half, propelled the Warriors to a 14-0 advantage at halftime.

Entering the second half, despite Dedham’s increased resistance, Medfield remained relentless, securing ground balls and capitalizing on scoring chances. Ava Aldrich and Sarah Faust each added two goals for Medfield in the second half, while Stella Scobbo's goal sealed the 19-0 victory for Medfield.

Head coach Mary Laughna shared the team’s goal for the evening’s game, and the versatility of her team: “Coming off we had two losses from our past two games… Our goal today was to clean it up and play a good clean game. We definitely did that today, we had an opportunity to run through some plays, we had nine different goal scorers which is awesome to get everyone involved,” said Laughna. 

Medfield hosts Medway High on Thursday, May 2 at 5:30 PM.
