GAME 13: Team Arsenault v Team Wood

Kenzie Kent Goes Off for Team Arsenault

Each team in Athletes Unlimited Lacrosse has the help of a facilitator to help with making decisions during each week of the season.

But, Team Arsenault is lucky to have a second facilitator on the field this week in attacker Kenzie Kent (Boston College), who erupted for four goals and four assists in her team’s 9-7 victory over Team Wood to open Week Three’s action at Maureen Hendricks Field at the Maryland SoccerPlex on Friday afternoon.

Kent, who has 12 assists in her last four games, matched her season high with four assists while setting a league season high with her eight-point performance, surpassing the seven points by attacker Kylie Ohlmiller (Stony Brook) against Team Warden last Friday. 

Attacker Sammy Jo Tracy (North Carolina) also registered a hat trick in the victory for Team Arsenault, scoring two of her three goals in the opening quarter. Midfielder Taylor Cummings (Maryland) contributed five ground balls with six draw controls and five caused turnovers.

Team Wood, which lost for the first time in four games this season, was paced by a pair of two-point goals from attacker Shayna Pirreca (Florida) while attacker Alex Aust (Maryland) chipped in a pair of goals.

GAME 14: Team Read v Team Ohlmiller

Sam Apuzzo Delivers Kylie Ohlmiller Another W

Winning was a common feeling for attacker Kylie Ohlmiller (Stony Brook) two weeks ago when she captained her squad to three straight wins.

Attacker Sam Apuzzo (Boston College) made sure the feeling didn’t change the second time around as her three goals paced Team Ohlmiller to a 9-8 victory over Team Read in Athletes Unlimited Lacrosse action at Maureen Hendricks Field at the Maryland SoccerPlex on Friday night. 

In a back-and-forth affair which saw neither team lead by more than two goals, it was a pair of goals by Ohlmiller and attacker Nicole Levy (Syracuse) in the fourth quarter that provided Team Ohlmiller a two-point lead. Attacker Mollie Stevens (Florida) trimmed the deficit to 9-8 with an unassisted marker with 57 seconds remaining, but Team Read was unable to tie the game. 

Apuzzo, Levy and Ohlmiller each registered a multi-goal game for Team Ohlmiller while midfielder Taryn VanThof (Loyola University Maryland) chipped in two assists in the victory.

Attacker Marie McCool (North Carolina) paced Team Read in a losing effort with her second hat trick of the season while attacker Lindsey Ronbeck (Florida) had a goal with an assist.

GAME 15: Team Ohlmiller v Team Wood

Defenses Dominate in Game 15

While most people expect offense to shine the most in Athletes Unlimited Lacrosse, it was the defense and goalkeeping that was on display in Team Wood’s 7-5 victory over Team Ohlmiller on Saturday afternoon at Maureen Hendricks Field at the Maryland SoccerPlex.

Goalkeeper Kady Glynn (Loyola Md.) led the charge for Team Wood with a nine-save effort, including five in the second half. Led by Glynn, Team Wood held Team Ohlmiller without a goal for the final 14:28 to secure its first win of the weekend.

Attacker Alex Aust (Maryland) paced Team Wood offensively with three goals, while midfielder Ally Kennedy (Stony Brook) chipped in a goal with two assists. 

Attacker Kylie Ohlmiller (Stony Brook) registered a four-point outing in a losing effort, scoring twice with two assists.

GAME 17: Team Wood v Team Read

Emily Parros Strikes with Six Seconds to Go

After suffering a tough 16-10 loss against Team Arsenault in Athletes Unlimited Lacrosse action last night, Team Read needed to have a short-term memory if it would be victorious against Team Wood in Sunday’s weekend finale for both teams.

Midfielder Emily Parros made that a certainty as her free-position goal with six seconds remaining gave Team Read an 11-10 victory over Team Read at Maureen Hendricks Field at the Maryland SoccerPlex. 

Parros, who finished with her second hat trick against Team Wood this season, broke a 10-all tie when she netted the free-position marker past goalkeeper Kady Glynn (Loyola Md.). 

Attacker Cortney Fortunato (Notre Dame) led all scorers with five goals in the victory for Team Read while contributing an assist. Goalkeeper and team captain Britt Read (Oregon) stopped 10 shots in the victory.

Dempsey Arsenault Claims Top Spot Despite Loss

Even with new teammates by her side, attacker Kylie Ohlmiller (Stony Brook) has been adept at winning the quarters during her two weeks as an Athletes Unlimited Lacrosse captain. That talent came in handy as she led her squad to an 11-8 victory over Team Arsenault in the final game of the weekend at Maureen Hendricks Field at the Maryland SoccerPlex on Sunday afternoon.

The win allowed Team Ohlmiller to close out Week Three with a 2-1 record while Team Arsenault also posted a 2-1 mark after falling for the first time on the weekend.
