Bethlehem downs Shenendehowa

The Bethlehem girls lacrosse team obliterated Shenendehowa 19-1 Monday in a Suburban Council game.

The Lady Eagles (6-1) scored three easy goals within the first five minutes. By halftime, Bethlehem had a 12-0 lead.

I felt that we truly came together and played as a team today, said head coach Dawn Austin. "We worked the ball around, were more patient on offense and capitalized on our opponents mistakes."

Cameron Caesar scored five goals to lead Bethlehem. Caesar has 16 goals this season, making her the leading goal scorer for the Lady Eagles.

Bethlehem looks like a young team with only one senior, but has 10 returning starters and 14 returning players.

"This year, we've stepped up our game. With all their playing experience from last year, they understand the game much better," said Austin.

The Lady Eagles hope to regain the Section II title after winning it for eight straight years from 1998-2006. Guilderland has won the last two Sectional championships.

"This team hopes to regain that title," stated Austin. "We have a very balanced attack. As you can see, nine different players scored today."
