In the varsity match for Oceanside, Hall netted two goals and Barbour and Straka one, while Danielle Ladd and Tyler had one assist for Oceanside. Laslavic played in net.

Information for the Windjammers was unavailable.

Vachon said she is “pleased with our lacrosse players … not defense or offense, but our lacrosse players.”

“Players have had to work in all areas of the field and with new teammates,” she said. “I know it will be beneficial for the team and for those that have had to step into those different roles this preseason. I believe it will make us all well-prepared for regular season.”

Vachon said Oceanside is in “for a great growing season with our jayvee roster.”

The veteran coach added she was happy with Hooper’s “catching and growing dodging prowess,” Daggett “being open for the ball and midfield work,” Butler's and Hall’s “work on the defensive end to keep the [Windjammers] at bay, along with Carmyn Pease looking to the weak-side threat,” Weinand’s “quickness and ‘stick-to-itness’ on the ball” and Nicole Ladd’s “rookie work at the draw circle.”
