Girls lacrosse: Park of Cottage Grove snaps Farmington's five-game streak
It took Park of Cottage Grove overtime to put an end to Farmington's program-record five-game winning streak Friday night.
The game was close throughout, with neither team separating itself by more than two goals over the course of the game. It was 7-7 at the end of the first half and 13-13 at the end of regulation before the Wolfpack scored a pair of unanswered goals to get away with a 15-13 victory at Park High School.
"We had a couple shots in the dwindling seconds, but couldn't get one by their goalie despite having some good opportunities," Farmington coach Dan Pickens said. "They ended up with the edge by winning some key draws and keeping possession. We played a great game and the girls should be proud of themselves."
The loss dropped the Tigers to 6-4 with two games remaining in the regular season. Three of those four losses have come by a combined four goals and two have come in overtime.
Adrienne Jolicoeur paced the Tigers with a career-high seven goals, giving her 24 on the season. Ally Midboe added four goals and two assists and Betsy Anderson and Rachael Welzin each scored once. Leading scorer Haley Bradshaw (37 goals) was the focus of the Wolfpack defense and was held without a goal for the first time this season.
A day earlier, Bradshaw tossed in a career-high eight goals in leading the Tigers to a season-high 18 goals in an 18-10 non-conference win over Rochester John Marshall at Tiger Stadium.
The Tigers saw an early 7-1 lead dwindle down to 8-6 by halftime, but responded with 10 goals in the second half to pull away from the Panthers.
Jessica Erchul backed Bradshaw with four goals of her own, Tia Jacoby scored twice and Jolicoeur and Midboe added single goals.
The Tigers traveled to Rochester Mayo on Tuesday and close out the regular season at home tonight against Holy Angels.
