While the J.P. Taravella girls lacrosse team hasn’t won their first eight games of the season like last season, they still come in with a record of 5-1 following their 14-2 win over South Plantation High School on Thursday night.
It’s the third time this season they have won by at least eight goals. In their first game of the year, they beat West Broward High School before beating Pompano Beach High School 11-3.
The Trojans then scored a school record of 23 goals in their most significant win ever 23-1 over Immokalee High School. They then scored one goal against St. Thomas Aquinas in their loss.
On Thursday night against South Plantation High School, Vicky Mann scored five goals while Celina Saunders and Remy Simpson each scored three goals.
Goaltender Priscilla Santos had a 78 save percentage, and Annaiz Maldonado got the game ball for her overall play.
“As a coach, it is extremely rewarding to see the girls succeed on the field and start a season 5-1,” said head coach Megan Letizia. “We have a long way to go and can’t let up on the gas just yet.”
Up next for JPT, they will face American Heritage on Tuesday, March 10, at 7 p.m. before playing Coral Springs High School on the road on March 12, at 5 p.m.
