Girls lacrosse: Century, Burnsville edge Tigers
Farmington Minnesota P.O. Box 192 / 312 Oak St. 55024

A pair of closely-contested losses kept the Farmington girls lacrosse team winless last week.

The Tigers couldn't muster the offense to rally in a 7-5 loss to Rochester Century Friday night at Tiger Stadium. A day later the team put together a furious three-goal rally late to tie the score against Burnsville only to have the Blaze secure the victory with a goal in the final 30 seconds.

"It was a tough one for our girls to swallow because they battled hard against a good Burnsville team," Farmington coach Dan Pickens said. "We need to stick together through these tough losses and hopefully we will be able to get back on track soon."

Shelby Klotz and Rachael Welzin each turned in hat tricks against Burnsville. Ashley Steffes added two goals and Kaeli Halvorson scored one. Kylee Glen assisted on a pair of scores in what Pickens said was a physical affair.

"Two of our top players left the game with bloody noses due to checks to the face in the last five minutes of the game," he said.

Goaltender Maddie Kohlbeck helped keep the Blaze in check with 12 saves.

Kohlbeck also saved 12 shots a day earlier against Century.

Klotz scored twice and Welzin, Steffes and Becky Genzler each added single goals. It was Steffes's first career varsity goal.

The Tigers (0-3) hosted Holy Angels Tuesday and are back home tonight against Park of Cottage Grove.
