South Burlington girls’ lacrosse rallies past Essex


Wolves take win behind strong first half finish

SBHS spoiled the Hornets’ Senior Night celebration on Thursday evening.

Wolves’ senior captain Lindsey Booth turned in a four-goal first half performance, and South Burlington kept the momentum after halftime for a 13-7 victory.

Both teams battled in a very back-and-forth start to the contest, but SBHS rallied for three goals in the final two minutes before halftime, and didn’t look back.

South Burlington improved to 9-2 this season, and the Wolves return home to host Burlington on Saturday, May 22 for an early 9 a.m. start.

Essex fell to 6-3, and the Hornets get to stay home as they look to rally against Mt. Mansfield on Tuesday, May 25 at 4:30 a.m.
