The Park girls lacrosse team kicked off the 2012 season against a familiar foe last week, falling at section rival Rosemount 13-11 in overtime on Thursday.
Park got off to a slow start and fell behind 5-2 midway through the first half. However, the Wolfpack (0-1) held Rosemount scoreless for the final 11 minutes of the first half and cut the deficit to 5-4 at the half. Park came out very strong in the second half taking two three-goal leads at 9-6 and 11-8, but Rosemount wouldn’t go away.
“It was one of the best all-around team games we have played in a long time,” Park head coach Scott Leonard said. “Unfortunately, we weren’t able to maintain the lead and ended up losing in overtime.”
For Park, Erica Weidner, Maddie Nelson and Katie Bresnahan each had two goals, Karisa Land, Bailey Aasen, Emma Waller, Rochelle Braun and Ann Marie Lane had one goal and Land and Alicia Wagenman each tallied one assist. Park senior goalie Allie Morse made 20 saves in the net.
Park began Suburban East Conference play on Monday at Roseville. Next, the Wolfpack hosts its home opener against perennial power Stillwater on Wednesday, before traveling to Rochester John Marshall on Friday.
