Worcester – The Algonquin Regional High School Tomahawks hosted the Longmeadow High School Lancers for the Massachusetts Girls’ Lacrosse Division 1 State semi-finals June 12 at Commerce Field at General Foley Stadium in Worcester.

The Tomahawks faced the Lancers last year in this round and defeated them 10-9 to advance to the State final.  This year however, they faced a Longmeadow team out to avenge that loss.

The Tomahawks’ Emily Hart scored first on an assist from Maggie Wraight but the Lancers then reeled off six goals in a row before Algonquin’s Kendyl Finelli scored.  Still, the first half ended with Longmeadow up by a score of 9-2.

In the second half Longmeadow maintained their first half momentum and eventually won the game 16 – 3.
