Wilde Lake routed Lions set goal mark Girls lacrosse

April 21, 1993|By Jeff Seidel | Jeff Seidel,Contributing Writer

Another night, another record for Liberty's girls lacrosse team.

Kym Frey scored four goals and handed out a school-record nine assists, and Chrissy Primavera scored six goals and had four assists as co-No. 12 Liberty set a school record for goals for the second straight night in a 28-5 rout of visiting Wilde Lake.

Liberty (6-0), which set a record on Monday for goals with 21 against Atholton, exploded for 16 first-half goals. The Lions broke the record when Nathalie Skovron scored with an assist from Frey with 11:22 left in the game.

The sixth straight win also set a record for consecutive victories.

The Lions scored the first nine goals of the game. They also scored the final 15.

"We weren't even trying to break the record," said Liberty coach Courtney Vaughn, whose team had 19 assists. "It was very team-oriented. They worked together. They're unselfish."

Nine players scored for Liberty. Megan Horneman (five goals, one assist), Skovron (three goals) and Amie Rose (three goals, two assists) led the way for the Lions.

Primavera opened the scoring just 93 seconds into the game by putting a shot in from in front. Just 1:19 later, Frey took a Primavera pass and fired it in from close for a 2-0 lead, and the rout was on.

Amberly Taylor scored three goals to lead Wilde Lake (1-2). Carrie Chao and Kim Driessen scored the other goals.

Wilde Lake's best offensive output came midway through the firsthalf. Taylor scored the first goal with 16:25 left in the half.

Trailing 12-1, Wilde Lake rallied to score three straight goals. Taylor (unassisted with 8:11 left), Chao (unassisted, 6:02) and Taylor (unassisted, 3:45) scored to slice it to 12-4. The rest, however, was all Liberty.

Liberty controlled play from the outset. The Lions repeatedly made slick passes that set up easy goals.

"Everyone was pretty much focused on working together," said Frey. "Everyone had a good feeling; play together, work together."

That's what Liberty did. The Lions scored the first nine goals of the game in just 7:36. The goals came in rapid-fire succession. At one point, the Lions scored goals 56, 22, 15, 8, 39 and 26 seconds apart.

"We weren't desperate for goals, so we didn't have to rush down the field," said Primavera. "We had to work it in."

Vaughn repeatedly substituted in waves, but the Lions kept bombarding Wilde Lake goalie Toby Treem.

Treem finished with five saves, just one in the second half as Liberty scored 12.

"They had some really nice plays," said Treem. "They had crisp, crisp passes."

The Lions' offense has been crisp all season. They have scored 107 goals in only six games, including 49 in the past two.

Liberty goalie Dani Fostik, although not tested often, played well. She finished with eight saves, five of which came on point-blank shots.
