The Roslyn High School girls’ lacrosse squad ended the regular season playing the same consistent ball they had all year. In early May, the Lady Bulldogs topped both Wheatley and Great Neck North, while losing a close match to conference rival MacArthur.
The Lady Bulldogs finished the year with a sterling 10-5 mark overall and a 5-4 winning record in Conference IV play.
The same group of stars who paced Roslyn all year long did the same as the season wound to a close in May. In the 16-10 win over Great Neck North, Allison Schneider, Nicole Korn and Lindsey Wolfe each had three goals, while Kayla Rebetti came up with two tallies. Mackenzie Liotta had nine saves. Her sister, Reilly scored one goal.
The 13-8 win over Wheatley was special in that Katherine Zisis, one of the team’s seniors, scored her first career goal. That goal, the first of the game, set the pace as Roslyn took a 7-5 first quarter lead, an advantage that they never relinquished. Assisting Zisis was Lexi Singer, Allison Schneider, Kayla Rebetti and Elizabeth George, each who had two goals. The winning effort was abetted by the goalkeeping tandem of Julia Saltzman and Mackenzie Liotta. Saltzman had six saves and Liotta chipped in with three stops.
The lone loss of the week that topped off this successful season was a 13-10 setback to MacArthur. Roslyn trailed 7-3 at the end of the first quarter, but rallied to outscore MacArthur, 7-6 in the final frame. It wasn’t enough for the win as Allison Schneider scored three goals, while Reilly Liotta and Lindsey Wolfe had two scores each. Julia Saltzman had eight saves in the losing cause.
For the year, Allison Schneider had 51 goals. Lexi Singer had 34 tallies and Lindsey Wolfe had 24 scores. In the net, both Julia Saltzman and Reilly Liotta had 60 saves. The year represented a big leap forward for the lacrosse program and Roslyn fans can look forward to more success in the future.
