Alvirne Girls’ Lacrosse Drops Both Games, Fall to 0-7

For girls’ lacrosse, things did not get much better to start the week, with a home loss against the Goffstown Grizzlies by a final of 20-1. Alvirne’s lone goal came from Addy Lemire, well after the game had gone into running clock thanks in large part to the stellar goalkeeping by Abaigeal Estano, who held Alvirne scoreless for a vast majority of the game with several quality opportunities for Alvirne, but Estano being able to stand strong. Never mind the fact that her defense in front of her was excellent and kept the Broncos away from the net and outside the arc for much of the contest.

Goffstown jumped out to an early lead, and never looked back as the game hit a ten-goal differential and running clock early on in the second quarter with Alvirne failing to get on the board until the late stages of the game.

Monday’s game was one that Alvirne didn’t look great from the opening faceoff, and unfortunately for the Broncos, the Grizzlies attackers had good speed and elite acceleration, providing explosive offense that the Bronco defenders simply couldn’t counteract, which led to a plethora of Grizzlies’ goals.

Thursday was more of the same for Alvirne, as they traveled to Durham to play Oyster River, and lost 18-0.

While there were minimal bright spots for Alvirne last week short of Addy Lemire’s goal against the Goffstown Grizzlies, and how could there be when a team is outscored 38-1 over the course of two games, Alvirne will be forced to bounce back this week with a game at home against Hollis-Brookline (6-3) on Monday evening and at ConVal (0-5) on Tuesday in what will be the Cougars’ second game of five this week.

As of right now, Alvirne sits 3.0 games back of Manchester Central with seven games to play in need of beating out the Little Green cleanly for the spot, as they do not play one another head-to-head this season. The Lady Broncos’ elimination number sits at just four, and if worst comes to worst, Alvirne could be eliminated this week from playoff contention
