The Lady Knights (2-11) were eliminated from the postseason after suffering two losses last week, but Southington coach Jill Pomposi said that the team is still looking to finish out the regular season strong to provide growth and varsity experience for next year’s team.
“We just want to play our game, and play together,” she said. “Hopefully the wins will come for us the last three games because we would love to end on a high note.”
Southington began the week at Guilford on Monday, May 9 and fell short 19-8. The Indians accumulated an 8-5 lead by the end of the first half.
Addie Kilgore paced the Knights with three goals. Morgan Raymond (1 assist) scored twice. Hannah Jackman (1 assist), Sarah Mafale, and Anna Laone finished with a goal apiece. Nickolina Doran and Hallie Altwies earned assists.
Julia Wells collected 13 saves. Guilford out-shot the Knight, 32-13.
Hall (3-10) spoiled the homecoming a few days later, handing the Knights their 7th loss in a row, 20-8. The Warriors built a 10-3 advantage heading into the break.
Raymond (1 assist) paced the Knights with five goals. Altwies scored twice, and Emily Gibney added another. Kilgore earned an assist.
Wells collected 12 saves. Hall out-shot the Knights, 32-15.
The Knights will focus on games this week against Conard (11-2) and Avon (1-9) as Pomposi continues to look ahead.
“The whole core is coming back next year, so there is that positive that as a group, we’ve gone through this entire season with the ups and downs together,” she said. “If we look back on it next year, everyone is going to know what we’re talking about.”
Southington is currently 25th in Class L and 0-5 in the CCC North.
