Rockland — It has been tough sledding to start the season for the overall young Oceanside girls lacrosse team.

The Mariners dropped their first three matches of the spring and, on Friday, May 4, Oceanside suffered its fourth consecutive defeat, this time 13-6 at the hands of the visiting, unbeaten Lawrence Bulldogs of Fairfield.

Watch video below.

In the match, the Mariners were led offensively by Emily Tyler, who tallied four goals, while Taylor Hamlin (2 goals, assist) and Kristina Ferguson (assist) chipped in for the hosts.

For Lawrence, Cassandra Poli registered four goals and an assist, while Alexis Lewis (3 goals), Nora Buck (2 goals), Anna Castonguay (2 goals), Elsie Suttie (goal) and Savannah Weston (goal, assist) played key roles to lead the visitors to victory.

Oceanside’s Lydia Laslavic made eight saves in goal, while the Bulldogs’ Sierra Weston made 14 saves.

Oceanside coach Angie Vachon said the Mariners had their hands full with the Bulldogs. “[Cassandra] Poli was fast down field and accurate with her shots, overshooting [the goal] just once. Our defense had trouble containing her throughout the game.”

The Mariner coach added, “Bea Weinand stood her ground and the Bulldogs were called for a charge which seemed to spark [us],” Vachon said. “Bea, along with Jackie Hall, had some quick field running of their own as well.

The Mariners had a number of shots on goal, but were unable connect on more than a handful, Vachon said. “[Taylor] Hamlin had a soft shot on goal from outside the 12-meter arch, which was a supirse to Weston, which also put the crowd on its feet. Lydia Ross did a very good job on the center circle for her team, with a draw win or two of her own.”

In the Maine Principals’ Association Heal Point Standings for Class C, Oceanside (0-4, no points) is 12th, while Lake Region (4-1, 14.1667) is first in 12-team division. The top-eight teams qualify for the playoffs. There are no regions in Class C lacrosse, only one division in the state.
