Canton girls lacrosse fell in the opener to Detroit Country Day 5 – 18. Detroit Country Day dominated the draw circle which allowed them to dominate time of possession. The Canton defense, lead by Senior captain Audrey Buck, Senior Joelle Beaudreau and Junior Domonique Clark, played well but under constant pressure.
Bright spots for Canton in the opener were two goals from Freshman attacker Maggie Buck in her first game as a Chief. Junior Midfielder, Katja Nuler also contributed two goals and . Casey Bower added 1 goal to help the Chiefs.
Junior goalie, Christina (CC) Christenson, was outstanding in goal netting 12 saves in her first ever game in goal.
Canton fell behind 9 to 2 at the half but could not cut the deficit in the 2nd half. Chiefs Head Coach Dave Bower was pleased with his team’s effort against a very good Country Day team but realizes that there are lots of room for the team to improve. The Chiefs next game is Wednesday 3/25 at Kettering HS against Waterford United.
