Tuesday’s 18-1 win over Medford at Blocksidge Field was a milestone game for two members of the Swampscott girls lacrosse team. Senior attackman Grace DiGrande and junior midfielder Emerson Laundry both scored their 100th career goals.

“It was kind of fun for both the girls to happen to reach that in the same game,” Swampscott coach Al Eaton said. “They’ve both been working hard to try and reach their goals. Even though they noticed they were on the edge of it they were still being good teammates, feeding. I think that speaks to the team as a whole.”

Laundry finished with five goals and one assist. DiGrande scored four goals and logged one assist. Harper Clopton and Scarlett Ciciotti scored two goals each. Liz Green, Sydney Bray, Nikki Rosa, Jordan Waters and Zoey Bozjarian each found the back of the net once.

Big Blue goalie Sara Hamada-Mohamed made five saves.

Swampscott, still undefeated at 4-0, travels to Danvers Thursday (4).

“We’re pretty happy,” Eaton said. “We were excited about our wins over Beverly and Peabody last week. Both were big wins. We have Danvers and we play Marblehead twice next week. That’ll be a huge test. So far, the girls have been able to stand up to every challenge placed in front of them.”
