HUDSON – The Hudson High School girls lacrosse team saw its season come to close June 8, with a loss to the Notre Dame Academy in Worcester.
The game took place amid the region’s searing heat wave earlier this month, prompting a one hour delay to wait for cooler temperatures in the evening. From there, the game then saw further delays as nearby thunderstorms sent players seeking shelter indoors for roughly 30 minutes.
As play finally kicked off, athletes competed under steady, sprinkling rain.
The final score in this playoff matchup was 19-9 with Hawk player Riley Michaud leading the scoring at Hudson’s end of the field.
A Clinton High School student participating in Hudson’s lacrosse program through a co-op agreement, Michaud netted three goals.
“[The] Hawks played hard and never gave up,” Hudson Athletic Director Jessica Winders wrote in a tweet following the game. “A tough way to end this unique season, but their effort was unmatched.”
Hudson’s season, indeed, ended with this loss. Notre Dame, meanwhile, moved on to play Hopedale on June 10 where it lost by a score of 18-8.
