Milinovich, Carmichael lead Hale past Tacoma in girls lacrosse

SEATTLE – Corey Milinovich scored five goals and Mariko Carmichael scored four to lead Nathan Hale to a 14 – 12 Girls Division I high school lacrosse win over Tacoma, on seniors night Monday at Nathan Hale High School in Seattle.

The win evened Hale’s record at 6-6-0 and elevated the Raiders to a three-way tie with Tacoma and Snohomish for sixth place in Division I play. The top eight teams advance to the post season.

Hale opened scoring in the first as Hannah Gose found the net just 45 seconds into the game. The Raiders then went on to score three of the next four goals to take the early 4-1 lead. Tacoma then evened the game at four on two goals by Sadie Treleven and a solo shot by Elena Wimberger.

Following a three-goal run by Hale, Tacoma again came clawing back to tie the game at 7-7 on goals from Arijanna Zimmer at 5:40 and 3:39. Hale connected for two more take a two goal lead into the intermission.

In the second, Treleven brought the game within one twice, but Tacoma never got closer as the Raiders stayed just out of reach to secure the win.

“This was a huge win for Nathan Hale,” said Tacoma coach Courtney Stringer, whose team was dominated by 17 Nathan Hale draw controls including 6 by Lara Sidhu. “They were scrappy and fought for every ground ball and every draw control. They had huge energy from the get go.”

In the loss, Treleven had four goals for Tacoma and goaltender Charlie Cisacowski had nine saves.
