BRISTOL - The St. Paul girls lacrosse team made a furious attempt at a comeback but the Bristol co-op held it off to win 12-11 in a cross-city matchup at Bristol Eastern on Saturday afternoon.
The co-op led by four goals in the fourth quarter but the Falcons closed the gap with a few late goals but could not get the all-important tying goal. According to Bristol head coach Kyle Phelan, many players made big plays that led to his team’s win.
Gabby Abramczyk led the way for the co-op, scoring four goals, while Meghan Hamel was not far behind with three tallies. Mikayla Norton and Emily Stadnicki each netted a pair of goals and Natalie Domitriz added one of her own. Six different players accounted for Bristol’s six assists in the game: Norton, Hamel, Stadnicki, Ashley Watson, Ashley Macdonald and Jess Kenney.
In net, Kenney posted 13 saves to backstop Bristol to its third win of the season (3-7). The loss drops the Falcons to 2-6 this spring.
