Newtown High School’s girls’ and boys’ lacrosse teams took to the fields this past week and came away with some success. The girls went to Ridgefield on April 26 and earned an 11-5 win, then went to Wilton on April 29 for another battle with an FCIAC team, but fell 10-4 and stood at 6-2 overall this spring.
The boys, after losing 12-5 at Joel Barlow of Redding on April 24, came home and doubled up East Lyme 8-4 at Blue & Gold Stadium two days later to improve to 5-2.
In the win over Ridgefield, the girls led just 6-4 at halftime before pulling away. Carley Ferris scored five goals and had two assists, Emily Maher and Julia Shugrue both scored twice and had assists, Meaghan Brophy had a goal and three assists, and Kristie Vos Winkel added a goal.
