BAINBRIDGE – Tied at half, tied at the end, the Bainbridge Spartans left the field in an 11-11 draw against Eastside Catholic in varsity girls lacrosse last week.

The Spartans found ample offense from Paige Brigham and Sonia Olsen — the pair netted an impressive four goals each for BHS — but Bainbridge couldn’t break free from an all-around EC attack that saw seven Crusaders score in the stalemate showdown.

The two teams forged a 5–5 tie at the half, then the two squads hammered out six goals each in the second to finish the contest knotted at 11.

The draw was the first for both squads this year and the first blemish on an otherwise perfect Spartan season. Eastside Catholic dropped to 5-1-1.

Brigham also added two assists to her total, while fellow Spartan Sallie Marx added two goals and an assist.

Kyra Wortley also nailed the net for a goal to round out the Spartan scoring.

For EC, Ashley Blanton, Maddie Banks, Meredith Troy and Tristana Leist contributed two goals apiece; Valerie Vachris, McKenzie MacIlvennie and Marcela Santos added one goal each.

Spartan goaltender McKenzie Scott had eight saves, while Justice Gilbert stopped five for the Crusaders.
