The Vicksburg varsity girls’ lacrosse team showed flashes of potential in an early-season loss to powerhouse Caledonia.
The team ultimately lost the game 21-4. But considering how difficult scoring was last year for the squad, it’s a marked improvement for a team which has many members still learning a very complex game. The big highlight of the night was freshman Bella Pence, who accounted for three of the Lady Bulldogs’ goals. Her first goal came on a play where she cut up the middle through the Fighting Scots’ defense for a wide-open shot at the goal.
Later in the evening, senior Taylor Miller got in on the action when she ran behind the opposing goal and then cut back in front to make a spectacular left-handed shot into the back of the net. This year’s team has only three seniors but eight freshmen, making it a team with some growth potential.
