The Cortland High girls’ lacrosse team ended its three-game losing streak in decisive fashion Tuesday night, rolling to a 16-1 OHSL Freedom National Division win over Mexico on Moiseichik Field.

In another girls lacrosse contest, Fulton routed Homer 19-3.

Cortland 16, Mexico 1: “Mexico can never be overlooked,” Purple Tigers coach Kindra Catalano said, her team now 4-1 in the league and 5-3 overall. “We nearly broke even with them on draw controls and lost the groundball war to them in the first half. Tonight was the best team game we have played to date. Every player had a role in the game. Nearly half of our goals were assisted, which is a team goal we have set for ourselves.

“Grace Call and Lauren Swartz took more of a role at the draw circle today and did a great job. Some of our younger players worked hard to cut and make plays. As a young team, it is rewarding to see the veteran players teach, encourage and embrace the rookies.”

The youngest CHS player, eighth-grader Hannah Partigianoni, led the winners with four goals and an assist. Margaret Reagan had three goals and an assist and Logan Chase two goals and three assists. Kathleen Starr and Morgan Tabel each had a goal and an assist, and scoring one goal each were Call, Swartz, Abby Ricottilli, McKenna Snyder and Hannah Aldrich.

Paige Potter made two saves and Kelsey Gibbons stopped one shot as they shared time in the Cortland net. Chloe LeDuc had the lone goal for Mexico (1-4 league, 1-6 overall), which got five saves from goalie Rachel Rose and was outshot 27-5.

The Purple Tigers host Oswego on Moiseichik Field Friday at 7 p.m.

Cortland JVs beat Mexico 13-3 for their first win of the season as McKenna Morris led the way with six goals. Elizabeth Decker had two goals and one assist, Madison VanDonsel two goals, Tsai Lewis and Emma Baum a goal and an assist apiece, Rhen Waldbauer one goal and Tori Cruz one assist. Goalie Shyanne Lewis made five saves and the Purple Tigers won eight draw controls.

The JVs host Oswego Friday at 5 p.m. on Moiseichik Field.

Fulton 19, Homer 3: Hailey Carroll pumped in seven goals as Fulton had little trouble in winning Tuesday night’s OHSL Freedom Division girls’ lacrosse game on George Butts Field.

Fulton jumped out to an 11-0 halftime lead over Homer Central en route to a 19-3 victory. The Red Raiders improve to 3-1 in division play and 7-2 overall. The Trojans slip to 1-4, 1-7 overall.

Jordan Coulon (4 assists) and Mckenna Chesbro each scored for games for Fulton. Hannah Burlingham made four saves in the Fulton goal.

Homer Central girls got three goals in the second half. Nina Armideo found the cage twice and Mollie Ferrito netted one goal for the Trojans. Deede Partigianoni picked up one assist. Katie Lawrence recorded five saves for the Trojans.

Homer will return to action Friday when the Trojans host East Syracuse-Minoa. JV action begins at 5 p.m. with the varsity game to follow at 6:30 p.m.

Homer JVs got three goals each from Madi Sciera, Caraline Riley (1 assist) and Annika Roos during a 14-11 win over Fulton Tuesday.

The Trojans (4-2 overall) built a 7-3 halftime lead. The two teams battled through a fairly even second half with Fulton getting as close as 11-9, but Homer stayed in control.

Elizabeth Evans added two goals and four assists to the Homer attack. Caitlin Barber netted two goals with one assist and Taylor Netti had one goal. Makayla Miller made six saves in the Trojan goal. Sam Button stopped two Fulton shots.
