GIRLS LACROSSE: Scoring a challenge
CANTON, April 19 — In its first varsity campaign, Canton (0-4, 0-3 NCCC) is finding it difficult to score goals and even more difficult to stop their opponents from taking shots and scoring. The Warriors have scored a total of 11 goals in four games. However, they give up an average of nearly 17 goals a game.
Midfielder Aylannah Dylag scored the first goal in school history in a 19-2 loss to Avon on opening day. Colleen Barnhart scored the second goal midway through the second half. Canton had four goals in a 16-4 loss to Somers and gave up just 14 in a 14-2 loss to Farmington.
