Lady Eagles lacrosse wins OT thriller

Zionsville — Last season, the Heritage Christian girls lacrosse topped Zionsville twice in overtime, including in the regional.

The Eagles got a bit of revenge Thursday in thrilling fashion. Zionsville’s Allee Moore scored with 10.5 seconds left in regulation to force overtime and Jayme Brizzolara scored with 33.3 seconds remaining in the second overtime period to send the Eagles to a 15-14 win.

“I am extremely proud of them,” Zionsville head coach Missy Stringham said. “One of our key low defenders is out with a concussion, so that threw off our entire lineup. It made us switch everything and several people had key roles where they were supposed to do anything and they did a great job of that. For (Jayme) to step up at the end and finish that — it was all her hard work. Erin (Kunkel) had a great game as well, as did sneaky Allee Moore, who I wish was 7-feet tall because she would get more looks. But as a team, the girls played their hearts out.”

Zionsville seemed to be in control of the game early, taking a 10-6 lead at halftime.

Kunkel and Brizzolara scored four goals in the half, while Moore scored two.

The Eagles extended the lead to 11-6 with 22:33 remaining on a goal by Anne Poindexter.

“We wanted to come out and set the tone especially against them because we had lost to them twice in overtime last year,” Stringham said. “It was on those seniors’ minds. They wanted to make a statement right away that they were ready to play today.”
