Bainbridge goes on 9-0 run to take control, stay undefeated.
Bainbridge girls’ lacrosse head coach Tami Tommila said that Jaclyn Biggers is only at 60 percent as she regains her form after offseason knee surgery.
But Biggers looked like she hadn’t lost a step Wednesday when she scored 10 points in the Spartans’ 18-12 win over the Lakeside Lions.
The win keeps Bainbridge perfect at 4-0 and snaps Lakeside’s five-game winning streak.
Biggers scored eight goals and had two assists. She also had three ground balls and three draw controls in just her second game back.
The senior co-captain said her knee feels better.
“On Friday (against Lake Sammamish) it was a little rough, but today it felt pretty good,” she said.
Tommila said that even at 60 percent, Biggers is still an offensive threat.
“She did really well that way today,” she said.
After Rebecca Long scored the first two goals of the game for Lakeside, Biggers ripped off three straight goals to start a 9-0 run for the Spartans.
She scored her first goal off a great pass from Kelsey Mackin, scored off a free position shot, then notched another goal off a great feed from Bea Sheffer.
Biggers returned the favor by assisting on a goal by Mackin. Mackin scored twice more in the run while Biggers scored off a forced turnover by Abby Love and Theo Fehsenfeld scored.
“Our game was pretty much focused on fast breaks,” Biggers said. “When we’re on it, we’re great, and when we’re off it, that’s what we’re missing. We had a great fast-break game.”
Lakeside slowed the game down after a timeout, but Biggers and Mackin scored before halftime to increase the lead.
In the second half the Lions kept slowing the game down and began finding lanes for drives to the cage as the Spartan defenders got tired.
Despite the slowdown in play and two yellow cards shown to Biggers and Olivia Smith, the Lions could not overcome the deficit.
Biggers and Mackin scored twice to keep Bainbridge up for good.
Fehsenfeld had two goals, an assist, five draw controls and two ground balls.
In Bainbridge’s 15-8 win over Lake Sammamish Friday, Biggers led all scorers with six goals. She also had five ground balls and four draw controls. Emma Entress scored four goals while Sheffer added two.
