Mahoney’s 8 goals lifts Mercer Island over Hale in girls lacrosse

SEATTLE – Caroline Mahoney scored eight goals and delivered two assists to lift Mercer Island to a 16 – 11 Girls Division I high school lacrosse win over Nathan Hale, Friday at Nathan Hale High School in Seattle.

The win was the third straight for the Islanders who advanced to 4-1-1 in Girls Division I play. Despite the win, the Islanders slipped to fifth place as Roosevelt also won, lifting the now 5-1-1 Roughriders to sole possession of fourth.

Mahoney, the Islanders’ co-captain, entered the game as the third leading scorer in Division I with 29 goals and 6 assists. Her eight goals on Friday advanced her to second overall in goals scored and to within one of league leader Mariah Walk of Bainbridge Island.

In the first, Mahoney took a pass at 20:54 from senior attack Hannah Bahn to get scoring underway. Just 37 seconds later the Islanders jumped out to a 2 – 0 advantage as Bahn connected for a solo shot. The goal was the first of four for Bahn in the game.

At 19:44 Nathan Hale came charging back as Lara Sidhu took an Emm Ciechanowsai pass to put the Raiders on the board. The goal was the first of four unanswered scores for Hale over the next four minutes as the Raiders took a 4 – 2 lead.

Mercer Island’s Sydney Tomlinson and Mahoney then each delivered for the Islanders to tie the game at four goals apiece.

Following a lone Hale goal at 11:41 from Corey Milinovich, the Islanders again took control, scoring five of the next six goals for a 9 – 6 halftime advantage.

In the second half, MI again took up residence in the Hale zone as the Islanders scored five of the next six goals to put the game out of reach.

Milinovich had five goals and Millie Lindburgh had three for the Raiders, who fielded just 13 players in the loss.
