Newcastle — Two days after the Oceanside girls lacrosse team secured its first win of the campaign, the Mariners were back on the field, as the squad looked for its second straight victory.

Oceanside did not have the luxury of home field this time around, however, as the Mariners played Lincoln Academy on its turf field, and fell to the Eagles 8-4 on Wednesday, May 15.

Mattie Hooper (2 goals) led Oceanside, while Hope Butler (goal, assist), Grace Cody (goal) and Jackie Daggett (assist) had strong offensive showings.

Alex Fabiano paced Lincoln Academy with four goals, while teammates Josey Henry, Camden LeBel, Aubree Cookson and Ellie Mathews all found the back of the net.

Lydia Laslavic made 13 saves in net for the Mariners, while Maddie Shaw stopped seven for the Eagles.

"Lydia Laslavic continues to up her game and work for her team in the [goal], and faced four penalty shots in today’s contest," said Mariner coach Angie Vachon. "Emma Young was key on transition with her eye on the ball and work to the ball to gain possession several times. Makayla Gleba kept a tight eye on outlet opportunities for the Eagles, and was quick to defend, or cause a turnover.

"Lexie McMahan played her new role in the midfield well today, while Julia Bartlett and Jackie Hall switched ends several times. Hope Butler continues with her hard work from end to end fending off tight defense and double teams, as well as playing a tough defense of her own. The team really appreciated the Mariner fan support for this game. They did a great job keeping up the hype."

In the Maine Principals' Association Heal Point Standings for Class C, Oceanside (1-6, 0.8333 points) is 12th, while Winslow (9-0, 68.1944 points) is first in the 13-team state division. The top nine team qualify for the playoffs.
