Girls lacrosse: Program earns first home win
Farmington Minnesota P.O. Box 192 / 312 Oak St. 55024

Farmington's inaugural lacrosse season has been filled with firsts. Two more noteworthy firsts were achieved last week when the Tiger girls picked up their first home victory, as well as their first win over a Missota Conference opponent, with a 9-8 rally past Holy Angels Thursday at Tiger Stadium.


"To win the first-ever matchup against a team we will be playing for years was great," Farmington coach Dan Pickens said. "We are really improving and we should compete in all of the rest of our games."

The Tigers trailed 6-3 at halftime, but came back to tie the score as the clock wound down inside of two minutes. The rally was completed when Tia Jacoby found team scoring leader Ally Midboe for the difference-maker with 1:27 remaining.

Midboe scored twice in the contest and leads the team with nine goals. Adrienne Jolicoeur also scored twice and Midboe and Jacoby each dished out two assists.

Jacoby, Ashley Gandrud, Ariel Hageman and Betsy Anderson each scored single goals.

Maddie Kohlbeck played the entire game in the goal and picked up her second win, stopping nine Holy Angels shots.

The Tigers traveled to windy Owatonna last Saturday and came away with a 12-5 setback.

Midboe supplied three of the goals and Lindsay Benson and Kevra Wolfe each scored once.

Kohlbeck finished with nine saves.

The Tigers took on Southwest on Tuesday and are back home again tonight against Prior Lake. Opening face-off is set for 6:30 p.m. at Tiger Stadium. The regular season comes to a close next Thursday at Rochester Mayo.
