The boys’ and girls’ varsity lacrosse teams played their annual Battle of the Bubble against Starr’s Mill on April 26. Alternating whose team gets to play on their home field, the Lady Chiefs and Chiefs traveled to Starr’s Mill to take on their rivals.

The Lady Chiefs played their opponents first. The Lady Chiefs lost with a final score of 13-7, losing to the Starr’s Mill Panthers. In the first two minutes and forty seconds of the first half, Starr’s Mill had their first shot on goal. Senior Trin Jalloh, playing goalie, saved this shot and another shot shortly after the first. Six minutes and a second into the half, McIntosh had their first shot on goal by senior Marie Ogletree. Missing the goal, Starr’s Mill gained possession of the ball and scored the first goal of the game with eighteen minutes and thirty-nine seconds into the first half. The Panthers then scored again thirty-four seconds later, giving Starr’s Mill a 2- 0 lead over the Lady Chiefs.

With sixteen minutes and twenty-three seconds left in the half, junior Lucy Stone put McIntosh’s first goal in the net and changed the score to 2-1. Starr’s Mill was still in the lead with McIntosh following closely behind. With two minutes and fifteen seconds left in the first half, Ogletree shot, and scored McIntosh’s second goal of the game, shifting the score to 5-2, as Starr’s Mill maintaining the upper hand. Unfortunately, at the end of the first half the Starr’s Mill Panthers were still in the lead, 7-2 over the Lady Chiefs.

In the first twelve seconds of the second half, Jollah had yet another major save which led to Ogletree scoring her second goal of the game. With five minutes and a second left in the game, junior Kate Cullen scored the Lady Chiefs’ fifth goal of the game, moving the score to 11-5. With twelve seconds left in the game, rushing to the goal, Ogletree scored yet another goal. This goal was McIntosh’s final goal of the game, which brought the score to 13-7. The Lady Chiefs left everything they had on the field, and sadly lost one of their biggest games of the season.

Sophomore Sammy Morgan, who has been on varsity for two years, said, “It’s always tough losing against Starr’s Mill and it would’ve been great to win, but it’s definitely my favorite game of the entire year. Everyone loveshow hype the team gets for this one game, which means that the competition between the two teams is super high.”

The boys’ team played soon after the girls and ended with the same feeling of defeat that the girls did. The varsity boys’ game ended with a score of 14-10, Starr’s Mill beating McIntosh for the third consecutive year. Differing from the girls’ game, the Chiefs came out with the first shot on goal. A minute and thirty seconds into the game, the Chiefs had their first goal of the game by sophomore Brooks Baro, assisted by senior Garrett LeClaire. A minute and fifty-three seconds later, Starr’s Mill scored their first goal of the game. Baro, once again scored with three minutes and forty-two seconds left in the first quarter. Thirty-three seconds remaining, Starr’s Mill scored, the last goal scored of the first quarter. The Chiefs finished with a final score of 2-2 as the first quarter finished.

With the beginning of the second quarter, Starr’s Mill scored first, but then Baro followed soon after with his third goal of the game, keeping the score of the game tied. Unfortunately after the third McIntosh goal, the Chiefs gave up four goals in four minutes and fifty seconds, moving the score to 7-3. McIntosh called a timeout after these goals were scored. Following this timeout, freshman Cooper Roman scored. But even with this goal, the Chiefs finished their second quarter with a score of 8-4.

The third quarter was almost no difference than the second, Starr’s Mill scored first. LeClaire had a shot with 33 seconds left in the quarter, but was stopped by Starr’s Mill goalie. McIntosh followed close behind with an end score of 13-7 at the end of the third quarter, with Starr’s Mill still in the lead.

In the final quarter, the Chiefs played harder than ever and scored three more goals and only gave up one goal, ending with a final score of 14-10. Starr’s Mill came out on top in the end of the game, but for senior goalie Grant Montgomery, there was good news to spare him of this loss against their rivals.

Montgomery, who has been playing lacrosse for nine years, broke the school record for saves in a game. The original school record was nineteen saves and Montgomery broke that record not by one or two, but by twelve saves. Not only did Montgomery break the school record, but he also tied with the all time state record for saves in a game with 31 saves.

Setting a new school record Montgomery said, “I was disappointed we lost a tough game, but when I heard I broke the record I felt relieved knowing that I accomplished a huge goal. The overall game was really tough. We knew that going into it, and it just came down to whichever had more possession time.”

Although the Chiefs and Lady Chiefs had high moral, their scores were low.
