The Spartans of Ocean Township improved to 9-2 last week with a huge 17-1 win over the Scarlet Fliers of Neptune in a girl’s lacrosse game.
Leading the Spartans were Jenna Gilman and Liz O’Grady with four goals each. McKayla Conti, Gabby Hagerman, Marissa Hazel each had two goals and Bailey Falco and Amanda Roskey each had a single goal in the overwhelming Ocean victory.
Several players also assisted on goals during the win over Neptune. Conti had two, Gilman, Nicole Jenks and Sara Parigian each had an assist. In the goal for Ocean was Bailey Herr who had three saves.
Andrea Schweitzer is in her rookie season as the head coach of the Spartans. She took over a program that finished 8-9 last season. It appears that the 2013 Spartans are a much improved squad as they have only two losses this season.
Neptune on the other hand is currently 2-8 overall. They are coached by Heather Kruger, who is in her seventh season. Last year the Scarlet Fliers finished 6-10.
