The defending Division I champion Pinkerton Academy girls’ lacrosse squad started its defense of its 2016 crown by winning its first two matches. But the Lady Astros’ first victory was far more convincing than the second one.
Veteran coach Rob Daziel’s academy team was certainly chomping at the bit to finally get its 2017 season rolling when it faced off against the visiting Nashua South Lady Purple Panthers last Wednesday, April 12. And the D-I champs powered their way to a lopsided 13-3 victory.
The hosts held a modest, 3-1 lead at halftime, but then the floodgates opened wide as the Lady Astros outscored their guests by a huge 10-2 margin in half number two.
