Mady Hentosh eclipsed the 200-career point mark as the St. Mary’s girls lacrosse team defeated Arlington Catholic 18-7 Wednesday in a Catholic Central League contest. Hentosh finished her afternoon with two goals and three assists.
“I’m proud of Mady,” Spartans coach K.C. Butt said. “She played defense for me her freshman year. She’s only been a middie/attack for three seasons. It took her until last year to gain confidence with her stick. She really came into her own last year.”
Codi Butt carried the Spartans with 10 goals and two assists. Jenna Chaplain (goal, assist), Meg Parthum (goal, two assists), Kelsey Sullivan (goal, assist), Makayla McGrath (goal) and Katie Whitcomb (goal) also scored. Rylee Flannery dished one assist.
Goalie Lauren Vaccaro made 14 saves.
“I like what I see,” K.C. Butt said. “The girls are playing like a team. We’ve had two back to back team wins, which is what you like to see.”
The Spartans (11-2) host Essex Tech Friday night (7).
