Marlborough – For its season opener, the Algonquin Regional High School Tomahawks girls’ lacrosse team hosted the Groton-Dunstable Regional High School Crusaders at 911 Memorial Field April 1.

Last year, the Tomahawks defeated the Crusaders in the Central Massachusetts Division 1 semi-final.

They started off this game right where they left off, jumping out to a 7-2 lead in the first half. However, Groton-Dunstable battled hard to come back. The first half ended with the Tomahawks leading 11-8.

Groton-Dunstable scored first to open the second half and continued the pressure to narrow     Algonquin’s lead to only a single goal.  However, Algonquin was able to maintain its game plan and was able to score several more times to win, 18-14.
