Girls lacrosse: Breakdowns hurt Oak Ridge in loss

Four Oak Ridge High girls lacrosse players scored goals against Granite Bay in Friday’s game at the Trojans’ field, won by the Grizzlies 12-5.

Communication breakdown was a factor in moving the ball throughout most of the game for the Trojans.

“Our defense lacked communication tonight,” Oak Ridge coach Eldore Wood said. “The last couple of games, they’ve played really well.”

The top two scorers for the Trojans, Bridget Hansen and Morgan Bakarich, had limited shots on goal. Hansen averages two points per game and Bakarich three.

“I was hoping that my younger players would step up,” said Wood, who has four sophomores and two freshmen on the team. “We couldn’t finish those scoring opportunities.”

Wood was pleased with her team’s start of the game.

“We started off well,” Wood said. “We transitioned the ball well. You really have to pick your shots well.”

Hansen finished with one goal, Sara Cody had two and Jessica Hanson and Natalie Carrillo had one each. Troy goalie Laurel Maunder had 14 saves.

Oak Ridge (2-3, 4-6-1), is still in the battle for one of two playoff berths in the Sacramento Valley League with two league games left.
