GLENDALE — Coming off a shocking home loss to the Fairmont Senior Polar Bears back on Friday, March 15; The Lady Buccaneers (10-1, 8-0 in WVSLA play) collected themselves ahead of Tuesday, April 19’s scheduled road trip to take on the John Marshall Monarchs.   

For the first time all season, the Lady Bucs were to be tested on how they would respond as a team fresh off of a loss. During a critical moment in the season, the Lady Bucs answered the call in a big way, nearly shutting the Monarchs out en route to a 20-1 win, righting the ship in dominate fashion.  

Senior Gaidian Adams led the team with 9 ground balls fielded and caused a pair of turnovers as part of a very disruptive performance. Sophomore Kaylee Black fielded 6 ground balls and caused a team-high 4 turnovers, while Defibaugh fielded 5 ground balls and was responsible for causing 2 Monarch turnovers. 

The Lady Bucs’ attack was relentless and overwhelming, keeping the Monarchs on the defensive for almost the entirety of the game. Senior star Miranda Greene continues to make her case as the most dominate female lacrosse player in B-UHS history with a 9-goal, 2 assist performance, personally accounting for 11 points to lead the Lady Bucs offensive attack. Kendall Defibaugh played the perfect complementary role, focusing on staying aggressive and scoring, while letting Greene handle the playmaking load. Defibaugh scored 4 goals to finish the game as the team’s second-leading scorer. Seniors Hannah Walton and Kierra Arbogast chipped in a pair of goals apiece, while seniors Reese Hutson, Kaylee O’Conner and freshman Kendall Hefner each scored a single goal to round out the scoring numbers for the Lady Bucs in their win over John Marshall.  

Sophomore Hannah Crihfield got the starting nod tending the net for the Lady Bucs. While the Lady Bucs’ aggressive attack largely sheltered Crihfield from facing many shots. Although Crihfield only faced 6 total shots on goal, the sophomore goalie was a stonewall, recording 5 saves on those 6 attempts and only allowing a single goal 40 minutes of play. Fellow sophomore Emma Corder came in to relieve Crihfield for the game’s final stretch, not facing a goal for the game’s final 10 minutes, sealing the 20-1 blowout win.
