In a game played in miserable weather, the girls varsity lacrosse team lost 13-12 to Rockford in double overtime Wednesday night at Rockford.
With much of the game played in a driving snowstorm, the teams traded goals all night, with the lead changing hands several times. Mary Schumar was dominant for East in the first half, scoring all four Pioneer goals, but Rockford scored five to take a 5-4 lead at halftime.
In the second half, Rockford extended the lead to 6-4 before Audrey Whiteside and Eliana Lamange scored for the Pioneers to tie the game at 6-6. After another Rockford goal was answered by Whiteside, Sophie Forstner put the Pioneers ahead 8-7. Rockford scored the next three goals, however, before Whiteside and Schumar scored for East to send the game into overtime.
In the first overtime, Schumar and Whiteside countered a pair of Rockford goals, deadlocking the game at 12 and necessitating a second, sudden-death extra session. In the second overtime, Rockford scored on a free shot, ending the game by the final score of 13-12.
