On Monday, April 22, the Archie Williams girls varsity lacrosse team fought hard against Lowell High School on senior night. They celebrated their 11 seniors in fashion with a blowout win on their home turf. Archie Williams controlled the game the whole way through and ultimately won 18-5.

The Falcons started out the game leading 2-1, but began to gain significant momentum early on. Archie Williams went on a 7-0 scoring run to end the half 9-1, but that didn’t satisfy the Falcons. The second half was much of the same with the Falcons continuing scoring goal after goal, outscoring the Cardinals 9-4 and finishing out the game 18-5.

“They’ve [the seniors] been great leaders on the team, especially all of our captains. They have been like assistant coaches this year,” said head coach Ted Hellman.

Senior attacker Kyra Featherstone led the team with six goals and three assists, and senior midfielder Isabelle Connolly was not far behind with five goals. Kyra also led the team in assists with three.

On the defensive side, the Falcon’s defenders were successful in letting Lowell score minimal goals. Junior goalie Ashira Kim-Price had a stellar performance only letting 5 goals in. 

“What helped us win was our practice, team bonding, and we always give 100 percent energy,” Isabelle said.

The Falcons blew up the stat sheet with 35 shots, 18 goals, and 10 assists. They ended the day with heartfelt speeches about each of the seniors to commemorate their last year on the team.

“The seniors have created a very impactful environment, they make lacrosse fun, and set an example that makes everyone better,” said sophomore Ellen Winter.

The Falcons will try to take the momentum from this game into their next game versus the Terra Linda High School Trojans April 27. The game will take place at 5:30 pm at Terra Linda High School.
