Lake Shore and Frontier both played in first-place division tilts over a five-day stretch. Class C front-runner Lake Shore came out victorious beating Amherst for a second time this season in a one-goal game, 11-10, on May 3, but Frontier did not have the same good fortune as Class A’s top team Lancaster won a 9-4 game on Tuesday (May 7).
Allie Jimerson, who scored seven goals in Lake Shore’s 9-8 overtime win for the first time the teams played, recorded eight points, including five goals, in the latest win over Amherst. Eighth grader Shayla Scanlan added three goals and two assists and seventh grader Jalyn Jimerson had two goals. Junior Zoelle John and sophomore Symone Maracle also scored goals in the win.

Frontier dropped to 10-2 and two games behind Lancaster with the loss. The two teams had played to a closer 7-6 game when they met earlier in the season at Lancaster. The Redskins have yet to lose to a Western New York team this year.
Led by an offense that’s put up big numbers this year, Eden
has won a program-best five games and extended its winning streak to three after a 16-14 win over Iroquois on Friday.
The team’s top scorers include Molly Neureuter with 54 goals and Chelsea Jackson (34 goals). Neureuter and Jackson were selected to represent Western New York and Rochester in the upcoming US Lacrosse National Tournament being held at Lehigh University over Memorial Day weekend. Over 60 teams from across the nation will have an opportunity to play among the best.
The two are also are finding good outlets for passes to Jess Matie, Mariah Gaul and eighth grader Brittany Nowak. The defense for the 5-6 Raiders has been led by co-captain Kayley Zydel.
