Hanover — The next time the Hanover High girls lacrosse team practices, coach Chris Seibel plans to continue working on the Marauders’ attack. So far, defense and the draw are serving his squad well.

With Perrin Milliken, Mahler Meyerrose and Cate Wagner handling the all-important draws with skill, the Marauders clawed their way to an 11-9 win over Windham on Wednesday at Merriman-Branch Field. The Jaguars (4-3) stayed close through the game because the Marauders (2-1) didn’t execute their offensive set well, Seibel said.

Hanover still grabbed the win because of its faceoff play as well as its work around goaltender Katlyn Hurd (four saves).

“The team did an excellent job of read defending,” Seibel said. “We caused a lot of turnovers, but we didn’t shoot as well as we can, and we didn’t turn those turnovers into goals.”

Johanna Copeland and Maddie McCorkle both had four-goal games for Hanover, with McCorkle adding two assists. Hailey Fahey, Wagner and Sonthaya Lacy also snapped the twine; Amelia Lubrano and Jasmine Lou added assists.

“It was a pretty sloppy game; we’re really struggling with our offensive set,” Seibel added. “We just need to get more reps in, play more games and feel more comfortable with our offensive set.”

Hanover travels to Portsmouth on Friday.

Kyle Prior had a goal and two assists, and Adam Parker (assist), Dawson Nalette (assist), Reece Thompson, Joe Batchelder, Andrew Knight, Logan Raymond and Max Pfeiffer all had one goal.

Taylor put Woodsville ahead, 6-5, in the sixth with a bases-loaded, two-run single. Bazzell then followed with a two-run double off the fence in right-center field.

“Our energy just became better,” Woodsville coach Dana Huntington said. “We got down, 4-1, and we didn’t give up. We got one run here and one run in the third and (two in the fifth; the hitting and energy continued. Then we finally got that big inning we’ve been looking for all year.”

Freshmen McKenzie Dennis and Emma Restelli both went 3-4 for Woodsville, and Taylor finished with two hits. Dennis earned the win, throwing a complete-game five-hitter with 10 strikeouts and three walks.

Travis Stoddard and Seth Hannett both had two-hit days for Woodsville. Stoddard scored once and drove in a run, while Hannett had two RBIs to go with a run scored.

Dartmouth 9, Siena 9 (10)

Loudonville, n.y. — The Big Green scored twice in the eighth inning and three times in the ninth and played the Saints to a draw in a game called by darkness after 10 innings.

The tie, the first for Dartmouth (20-15-1) in 10 years, marked the first time this season the Big Green has rallied from a deficit after six innings to at least a deadlock at game’s end.

Dartmouth cut an 8-4 hole in its half in the eighth. Mike Brown plated Sean Sullivan with an RBI single, and Ben Socher followed thanks to an error. Siena got one run back in the home half.

The Big Green then tagged Siena closer Danny Hobbs for three runs in the ninth to force extras. Socher, Dustin Shirley and Kyle Holbrook had RBI singles in the rally.

Justin Fowler went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBIs to front Dartmouth’s 12-hit attack. Shirley, Holbrook, Sullivan and Mike Brown all had two hits as well.

Dartmouth wraps up the regular season with home-and-home doubleheaders with Harvard this weekend.
