From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
TRUSSVILLE — The Hewitt-Trussville lacrosse teams took some hard knocks last week, but they keep battling.
The girls lost to Oak Mountain and then lost a close one to Mountain Brook 8-6. Lilly McCormick and Hailey Wilcox scored multiple goals to keep the Huskies close. Zoe Carter and Abbie Curlee helped the defense slow down the two high-powered offenses.
“Our team is very young but our defense is much improved, ” said girls coach Tom McCormick. “We held Mountain Brook to just two goals in the entire half of the game. That was GREAT effort.”
Also, the girls JV won their first game vs MB 7-6 to move to 1-1.
The boys also played Mountain Brook, one of the South’s top teams last Thursday. The Huskies held close till the Spartans controlled the second half and took 15-3 loss. Freshman Grant Riccio and Dexter Massey scored and senior Micheal Martin added a goal.
Sunday the Huskies lost a close one to Randolph County (Grissom High) 12-7. Tied 6-6 at half, the lack of depth and experience of the young Huskies caught up with them. Sam Wilks, Garren Nowell, Sam Cork and Dexter Massey all scored.
The Huskies have a big game with rival Homewood on Thursday at home at 6:30. The girls are set to play Spain Park on Tuesday.
