Farmington girls lacrosse wins 4th straight

The Farmington girls lacrosse team extended its winning streak to four games with its second win over Chaska/Chanhassen in eight days last Thursday in Chaska.


The Tigers shut out the StormHawks in the second half as they scored seven unanswered goals to secure a 12-4 victory over their Missota Conference rivals.

"I am so proud of these girls and how far they have come," Farmington coach Dan Pickens said. "We were 3-20 the last two seasons and we are 5-3 this season, playing the same teams. I hope these girls are believing in themselves because they are the real deal. I can't wait to see how much more we can accomplish this year."

After allowing 14 goals in last Monday's win over Holy Angels, the Tiger defense held Chaska/Chanhassen to four goals for the second straight time and held the Stormhawks to 12 shots on goal. Goaltender Maddie Kohlbeck backed the defense with eight saves.

"Our defense was great this game," Pickens said. "They had plenty of possessions, but we were able to hold them to 12 shots. Then when they did get a shot, we had Kohlbeck there to stop it."

The three Farmington captains led the way on the offensive end, combining for 10 goals. Haley Bradshaw tossed in a team-high five goals, running her team-leading total to 29. Ally Midboe scored a hat trick, giving her 10 goals on the season, and Adrienne Jolicoeur scored two goals to run her total to 16.

Jessica Erchul added a goal and an assist and Kaeli Halverson contributed her first goal of the season.

The Tigers traveled to Owatonna Tuesday and are back home for another non-conference contest tonight against Rochester John Marshall. Tomorrow night they travel to Cottage Grove to take on Park.
