Camden Hills notches first win of new campaignSmith, Orne look good wearing hats as they turn three-goal tricks
Newcastle — The Camden Hills girls lacrosse team busted into the win column on Tuesday, April 29 following a competitive match with host Lincoln Academy.
The Windjammers (1-1) outlasted the host Eagles 8-6 thanks, in large part, to hat tricks from Lea Smith and Kathrine Orne.
Smith and Orne scored three goals apiece and Emma Brownawell and Addie Drinkwater both one. Smith finished with an impressive nine shots on goal and maintained consistent pressure on the Lincoln Academy goalie.
Brittani Winslow had an "amazing game" in net, said Windjammer coach Amy Gertner, as the Windjammer goalie made 16 saves, "while battling bright sun and a strong effort from Lincoln's offense. Their program has grown significantly since last year, also sustaining a strong senior presence."
Gertner said the Windjammers' "defense played a very tough game with Maddy Raynor, Emma Brownawell and Adrianna Goodale creating a solid blockade. Hannah Wincklhofer dominated the middle of the field with help from new player Macy Buck. Macy's field hockey experience is obvious as she has such a strong field sense. Kiera Haining played an aggressive game, with five shots on goal."
The coach said Camden Hills "got into a little foul trouble, but we held composure and, in the end, rose above the challenges. They are a strong pack of players, and have a lot of heart. [I am] looking forward to moving forward and taking each game as a learning opportunity."
