The Notre Dame (Hingham) girls’ lacrosse team continued its dominance this season as the No. 2 Cougars defeated No. 10 Duxbury, 15-7, on the road Thursday night.
The eight-goal margin is the closest any team has come to playing even with Notre Dame (6-0) this season. The Cougars have outscored their opponents, 84-26.
“Duxbury is one of the toughest opponents we’ll face all season,” said Notre Dame coach Meredith Frank. “I was not expecting a blowout at all. They fought hard for 50 solid minutes.”
Despite attempts to double- and triple-team Notre Dame’s attackers, there were too many offensive threats for the Dragons (2-2) to contain.
After trailing, 7-2, at the half, the Dragons tried to claw back, closing the gap to 9-5 before the Cougars picked it up and went on a five-goal run .
Cougars freshman Charlotte Allard led all scorers with five goals and an assist.
