Seniors shine on Mustangs Senior Day

Stevenson’s seniors combine for 11 goals on Senior Day.

They truly made it their day.

Though they were celebrating Senior Day a little earlier than teams usually go, the Stevenson women’s lacrosse team’s most veteran class still shine on the day meant to honor them. The senior class combined for 11 goals and led the Mustangs to a 21-8 rout of the visiting Arcadia Knights on Saturday afternoon.

Mackenzie Reese led the effort with four goals to go with one assist while Brady Heher and Olivia Monteiro each scored three goals. Monteiro had another big all-around game with four goals and five draw controls. Heher also had five draw controls. Tori Bruno was the fourth senior to score in the game.

Stevenson actually trailed in the blowout victory after Shannon Ryan scored the first goal of the game to put the Knights ahead just three and a half minutes into the game, but the Mustangs then rattled off five-straight goals and never turned back.

Freshman midfielder Carly Bowes was actually the spark to the early run with a hand in all five of the scores. The scored twice and had the other three assists in the run. She also led the Mustangs with five draw controls and scooped up two ground balls. Mallory Davila, Dana Stevens, and Kiely Bunce also scored for Stevenson in the run.

Arcadia ended the run and a 10-minute scoring drought with a free position goal by Nicole Hutson, but Stevenson responded right back with free position goal from Davila and an unassisted score by Monteiro just a minute later to make it a 7-2 game with 14:36 left.

Arcadia’s Erin Misner and Ryan sandwiched another goal by Heher to get within four goals with 3:16 left in the half, but Heher and Reese both scored in the final three minutes to put Stevenson back ahead by six goals at halftime at 10-4. Both of their goals were unassisted. Reese’s goal came with only seven seconds left before the break.

Another Stevenson freshman, Sarah Roerty, opened the second half with a free position score just four seconds into the action. She finished the game with two points on a goal and an assist, a team-high five ground balls, five draw controls and a pair of caused turnovers.

For the first time in the game, Arcadia was able to score back-to-back goals when Ryan and Hutson both scored just about two and a half minutes apart to make it an 11-6 game with 26:21 remaining in the second half. But that was as close as the Knights would get.

Dana Stevenson followed with a free position goal before Heher and Reese made it three straight for Stevenson with a goal. Monteiro and Amanda Robshaw then followed an Erin Misner goals to put the Mustangs up by nine goals.

Arcadia got it to eight when Misner scored another free position goal with 9:19 left, but Stevenson finished the game with five straight goals. They had a running clock for the final eight minutes of the game after going ahead 18-8 on a goal by Reese. Reese, Monteiro, and Bruno combined for the final four goals, with two f them coming from Reese.

Goalkeeper Mack Ferguson finished the game with six saves in 57-plus minutes before Jess Larosa game in for the final moments of the game.

Stevenson outshot Arcadia 44-18, beat them on draws 23-8 and ground balls 20-14. Stevenson caused eight of Arcadia’s 17 turnovers in the game.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
