False start for Old Mill, N. County Lightning halts game in 2nd half Girls lacrosse

April 02, 1993|By Tom Worgo | Tom Worgo,Contributing Writer

Old Mill's first-year girls lacrosse coach Bill Zaetz wondered how the Patriots would play in yesterday's game against North County after getting crushed, 17-2, by No. 3 Severna Park Wednesday.

Old Mill (0-1) responded by scoring more goals in the first half (three) than they did in the Severna Park game.

A fourth goal was taken away in the first half because one of the Patriots used an illegal stick.

But Old Mill's solid performance went to waste. The game was called less than three minutes into the second half due to lightning, with North County leading, 5-3.

Referees waited 15 minutes after stopping play before calling it. It marked the third time in a week that the game had been postponed. No date is set for the game, which will be restarted.

Old Mill's Sara Saghirian registered two goals and Michelle Salmon, who scored both goals against Severna Park, added another.

"I was hoping it [the Severna Park game] would be a wake-up call," Zaetz said. "I don't think they had been taking it very seriously. But we played much better today."

Karen Wick and Michelle Dillow each scored two goals and Becky Webb scored once for the Knights. Joy Farmer posted six saves for North County, which defeated Southern, 12-10, Wednesday in its season opener.

"We have to develop confidence," North County coach Tom Taylor said. "I have only three seniors. It's frustrating to just practice and practice lately. I was really looking forward to playing. But everybody is on hold for one or two games."
