Lady Mariners are RIIL DIII State Champions!
- RHS 12, Toll Gate 9
- Kaeley Zito – 6g, 2a
Saturday’s game was an incredible end to an awesome season! The game began with stellar defense on both sides in ten scoreless minutes, but then Ptolly Tassone put one past the Tollgate goalie, rallying her team. Rocky Hill put three more in quick succession, but moments later Tollgate scored three. At half time, the score was a tense 4-3 Rocky Hill.
After the half, Rocky Hill slipped behind 6-4, but after a brilliant stick check by Charlotte Boss and a called off 7th goal, the Mariners surged ahead. Tamira Lopes did a fantastic job marking Tollgate’s star attacker, Nicole Procaccini out of the game, Jordan Lanowy got the big hat trick, and Kaeley Zito unleashed the fury.
Tolly Tassone had 2 goals and 3 assists, Jordan Lanowy had 3 goals, Charlotte Boss had 1 goal and 1 assist, Chloe Ponte had 1 goal, and Kaeley Zito had 6 goals and 2 assists. The final score was 13-9! Congratulations to the D3 State Champions!
