Fallston scored the game's first five goals, and Jess Dunn added five as the visiting Cougars posted a 13-10 girls lacrosse victory over Bel Air last night.

The Cougars took command by scoring five straight goals in a span of 4:44 to take a 5-0 lead with 16:33 left in the first half. Dunn then scored twice in the first half and had three goals in the second half to help Fallston (4-1) hold off Bel Air (4-1).

Erika Braerman and Gabby Antinozzi both had two goals and two assists for Fallston, and Kathleen Tress and Roxanne Raab each scored twice. The Bobcats couldn't slow the Cougars, who cleared with ease or just ran away from trouble.

"We have a lot of speed on our team," Dunn said.

Dunn has gotten off to a great start this season. She has 20 goals and two assists in five games and has scored at least five goals three times. The junior scored six on Monday against John Carroll, three on Wednesday against Winters Mill and five yesterday.

Bel Air stayed in the game by winning a majority of the draws and keeping the ball away from the Cougars for long stretches. Kim Cudmore (three goals, one assist) and Christina Dove (two goals, one assist) sparked the Bobcats, who made the game interesting in the second half.

Bel Air cut the lead to 10-8 with three quick goals midway through the second half. But Braerman and Dunn scored back-to-back goals for a 12-8 lead, and the Bobcats never got closer than three again.
