CHILLICOTHE HIGH SCHOOL: 9
OHS varsity girls' lacrosse lost a heartbreaker 9-8 to Chillicothe. OHS dominated the first half and led 6-3 at the intermission, and had a four goal lead with 18 minutes left in the contest. After losing a few draw controls, Oakwood was unable to prevent the Cavaliers from scoring.
As Chillicothe chipped away at the lead, Oakwood's leading scorers had multiple shots hit the cage or miss barely wide. With a one point lead late in the game, Chillicothe went into a stall, and Oakwood was forced into a pressure defense. The gamble paid off, and Oakwood forced a turnover with 38 seconds remaining.
Following an injury timeout, OHS pushed the ball up the field and fed an open shooter on the crease, but the Chillicothe goalie's loan save of the second half sealed the game. Junior captain Anna Millard led Oakwood with 4 goals, 1 assist, 3 draws controlled, 3 groundballs and 4 caused turnovers. Senior Taylor Shineman added two more goals, and Senior Tess Henderson and Junior Clara Minardi each tallied a goal.
