Westborough – The Westborough High School Rangers’ girls’ varsity lacrosse team hosted the Shrewsbury High School Colonials on the turf field May 8. The game started out with the Rangers on top and in a groove with a score of 4-1 in a short amount of time. Shrewsbury then found their rhythm and were able to get within a point of tying up the score in the first half.

With 16:11 minutes remaining in the second half, and the score tied at 10-10, the Colonials were able to take over the lead.  Westborough quickly reorganized and came back strong, both on offense and defensive.  Ultimately, with six minutes left in the game, the Rangers were able to defeat the Colonials, 15-13.
