SEATTLE - Two for three, and another Bainbridge victory.

Sallie Marx and Ellen Carpenter both shredded the net with hat tricks as Bainbridge humbled Holy Names Academy 17-7 in girls varsity lacrosse late last week at Seattle’s Magnuson Park.

The Spartans doubled-up on the Cougars in the first and took a 6–3 lead into intermission, then went on a scoring frenzy in the second half with another nine in the net.

Marx finished the night with six points on three goals and three assists, while Carpenter had four (three goals, one assist).

McKenzie Scott and Kelly Coffyn combined for eight saves in goal for Bainbridge.

Holy Names was led by Ellie Rothrock and Madeline McDonald with two goals each. Freshman Martha Blatner had a strong performance with eight saves between the Cougars’ pipes.

Marx also finished with two ground balls and three draw controls to accompany her hat trick for BHS.

Other standouts for the Spartans included Paige Brigham with two goals, three assists and one ground ball; Sonia Olson with two goals; Robin Hilderman with one goal, one draw control and two caused turnovers.

The win pushed Bainbridge’s record to 4-0-1, and the Spartans were scheduled to take on Snohomish-Glacier Peak (4-1-0), Thursday, April 17 at Glacier Peak High School in Snohomish.  The loss dropped the Crusaders to 3-3-0.
