Brunswick dominates Morse to improve to 5-0
BATH—The Brunswick girls' lacrosse team dominated from start to finish as it defeated host rival Morse Monday afternoon, 18-3.
“We wanted to come out like we came out in the second half of the Lewiston game,” said Brunswick defenseman Katie Swan.
Brunswick defeated Lewiston 16-5 Thursday and the Dragons didn't miss a beat as they got two quick goals from Anne Kelly and Dakota Foster within the first two minutes of the game.
“We are assist driven team, we get a lot of assists,” said Brunswick coach Beth Caputi. “We had less then 10 assists today, usually it's a two-thirds ratio.”
Suzannah Smith assisted on the first two goals for the Dragons.
“(Brunswick) was definitely the better team today,” said Morse coach Linda Levesque. “We are better than what we showed. “We will learn from this. We have a really competitive schedule this year which we are excited about.”
Kelly would get her second of the contest at the 5:15 mark of the first half.
"We had three girls Thursday score 16 of the 18 goals,” said Caputi of Kelly, Foster, and Smith.
Smith would add to her point total with a goal to make it 4-0 at the 6:08 of the opening half.
Kelly and Foster would score again before Tori Field got Morse on the board at the 12:18 mark of the first half to make the score 6-1 Brunswick.
“I appreciated that (Morse) put up a contest no matter what the score is,” Caputi added.
Brunswick (5-0) would add five more goals heading to halftime with two goals coming from Anne Kelly, two from Foster, and one from Grace Rabinowitz.
Shannon Rice opened the scoring in the second half for the Shipbuilders with a goal at the 1:16 mark.
“We learned something, we got another game (on Tuesday), another game on Thursday, and we wish Brunswick all the best,” said Levesque. “We hope they can represent the KVAC and go as far as they can, but we do see them again in Brunswick.”
Smith and Foster each had two goals and two assists in the second half for Brunswick. Kelly had two goals and Eliza Brooks added one goal.
Sadia Crosby notched Morse's (1-3) third goal.
“I though we played a good game,” said Crosby. “Brunswick is a good team, they have a great program, I respect them. We just need to keep working hard, I thought our defense did a great job holding their own.”
Caputi noted Swan's defensive effort.
“Katie I thought had one of her best games,” Caputi stated. “She was coming up with the ground balls, coming up with interceptions and making the recovery.”
Molly Herman made eight saves for the Dragons.
“Molly didn't see a lot of action, but she made some good saves,” said Caputi.
Crystal Leavitt made six saves for Morse.
Brunswick is at Camden Hills Tuesday and visits Cony Thursday.
Morse hosts Edward Little Tuesday and Gardiner Thursday.
The Shipbuilders have a rematch at the Dragons May 15.
