Wellington Girls Lax Easily Defeats Palm Beach Central


The Wellington High School girls varsity lacrosse team hosted cross-town rival Palm Beach Central High School on Tuesday, Feb. 25 in a match for local bragging rights.

The Wolverines handily defeated the Broncos 18-2. Wellington (3-3) provided scoring from ten different players and had a comfortable 11-1 halftime lead. Palm Beach Central did battle back on occasion.

After Wellington took an early 3-goal lead, Bronco attacker Jamie Intile took the ball up the center of the field and found the back of the net to cut the Wellington lead to 3-1.

It would not be enough, as the Wolverines continued to pepper the Palm Beach Central goal. Jordan Favre would add another goal for the Broncos, but could not stop the Wellington attack. Wellington possessed the ball and shot on goal with patience time and again.

Wellington’s Kathleen Gerrits, Natty Kelly and Katie Mucino combined for 11 goals. Kelsie Boudreau added a score and two assists. Molly Stout recorded two goals. Hannah Smith, Kaylynn Sobczyk, and Jenna Niedzwiedzki each had a goal.
