Talk about beginning a new season in emphatic fashion.
Wednesday, Sacred Heart Greenwich picked up exactly where it left off last spring, when it surged to a 17-2 record en route to registering another championship lacrosse season.
Efficiently executing their offense, flourishing in transition and locking down on defense, the Tigers opened their 2019 campaign with an impressive 16-3 triumph over visiting Kent School.
Displaying their numerous scoring options, four players tallied twice for Sacred Heart, which notched seven goals during the first 12 minutes of action, before entering halftime with a commanding 14-0 lead.
“Our team has worked very hard over the last few weeks preparing for opening day,” Sacred Heart coach Tara Clough said. “It was a great game and a total team effort. We have a lot of different options on the field and a lot of players contributed to this win.”
