Goal in final second lifts Canton past East Catholic, 9-8

Canton’s Julia Baldwin carries the ball upfield. The Warriors won their second one-goal decision of the season Saturday night with a 9-8 win over East Catholic.

CANTON, May 1, 2021 – Elle Bahre scored with 17 seconds left in regulation to lift the Canton High girls lacrosse team to their third win in four games with a 9-8 victory over East Catholic on Saturday night under the lights at the turf field.

East Catholic’s Mallory Barrett, who had a game-high five goals, tied the game at 8-8 with goal with 2:49 left in regulation. Barrett scored five of the final six goals for the Eagles (2-3).

Gabby DelSanto led Canton (3-3) with three goals while Mary DeRitis added two. Bahre, Emma Mates and Jordan Defina each added a goal for the Warriors.

Rachel Frink made 11 saves in net to secure the win for the Warriors.

“It was a huge win for us,” Canton coach Sean Cole said. “Our confidence is rising. There was incredible defense played both ways.” It was the second one-goal victory of the season for the Warriors, who beat Avon by a single goal, 10-9, earlier this week.

Canton returns to action when they travel to face NCCC rival Somers beginning at 4:15 p.m.
