The Girls Lacrosse team continues to dominate their opponents, although they faced a strong opponent this past week forcing them to overtime.

On Wednesday, April 3, the Lady Panthers took on Nerinx Hall on the road. OTHS came away with the 15-11 victory. Olivia Branz was named the player of the game with her five goals, two ground balls, and her invaluable contribution in the transition.

On Friday, April 5, the Lady Panthers took to the field at the O’Fallon Sports Park to take on John Burroughs. This matchup proved to be quite competitive heading into a three minute sudden death overtime. Kaylie Grout scored the winning goal 37 seconds into the OT, giving O’Fallon the 11-10 victory. 

Amber Germuga was named the player of the game against John Burroughs thanks in large part to her her great defensive leadership.

This week the Lady Panthers traveled to Kirkwood to play on Tuesday, April 9. In a game that ended as the Weekly was being finalized, the Lady Panthers defeated Kirkwood 13-9. 

The team’s next game is Thursday, April 11, versus Parkway West High School.
