The Old Rochester Regional High School girls’ lacrosse team is 12-1 in the 2022 season, and a major driving force for the team has been senior Maddie Wright. Last week, she led the Lady Bulldogs to three big wins and in the process, found herself joining the 200-goal club.
After a 9-8 win at New Bedford on May 10, Old Rochester returned home the next day for its matchup with Seekonk. The Bulldogs dominated on their home field with a final score of 18-6. Wright was their biggest weapon, scoring seven goals on her way to surpassing 200 career goals. Meanwhile, Sydnee Pires contributed three points while Caroline Brogioli scored two.
Wright built off the momentum on May 13, putting on an even more impressive performance in ORR’s 20-10 win over Apponequet in Lakeville. She accounted for almost half of the Bulldogs’ goals, hitting the back of the net nine times. Also impressing against Apponequet was Kelly Quinlan, who scored eight goals. Old Rochester hosted Bourne on Wednesday and will visit Dighton-Rehoboth on Friday, May 20.
ORR’s boys’ lacrosse team continued its undefeated streak last week with two conference wins. On May 11, the Bulldogs picked up a 12-2 win over Seekonk, before defeating Apponequet, 14-13, in overtime on Friday the 13. The Bulldogs hosted Dartmouth on Tuesday, visited Bourne on Wednesday and will host Dighton-Rehoboth on Friday, May 20.
The Bulldogs started last week strong, picking up a 5-3 win at home against Dennis-Yarmouth. Following the win, however, they went on a two-game skid, losing 6-5 against Carver on May 11 before losing 5-3 against Dighton-Rehoboth on May 13. On Monday, the Bulldogs got back on track with a 12-7 win against Greater New Bedford Voc-Tech. The Bulldogs will visit Somerset Berkley on Friday, May 20.
