Bryn Mawr's attackers put together one of the most accurate performances of this girls lacrosse season yesterday, shooting 13 of 19 to beat neighborhood rival Roland Park, 13-8.

The No. 7 Mawrtians (8-2-1) scored on nine straight shots to run their lead as high as 13-5 midway through the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference non-league game at Bryn Mawr.

"We're starting to really get to know each other and we're finding each other in the 8-meter [arc]," said senior Megan Burker, who led the Mawrtians with five goals. "We're focusing on each other and once we get the ball, we can find the spaces. We're doing it so successfully because we're playing together."

Burker scored five of the Mawrtians' first eight goals and then Olachi Oparah took over, scoring four in a row. Her open-net, free-position goal with 9:01 left boosted the lead to 13-5.

The No. 9 Reds (4-3) rallied in the final minutes with three goals, two from Meg Ferguson, but it was too little too late.

"We were thinking too much about double-teaming when we needed to stay on our girl sometimes," said Reds defender Sarah Scalia. "Or if the double was going, we needed to see the slide."
