It was just a matter of time before the fifth-ranked Green Dragons girls’ lacrosse team got back on the winning track. Despite suffering a one-point loss and a tie in its last couple of games, Duxbury still scored 22 combined goals. Thursday’s game against Whitman-Hanson was yet another example of how quickly the Green Dragons could put points on the board, as they routed the Panthers, 19-1. Duxbury (11-4-1), which is undefeated in league play, jumped out to an early lead and had a 13-0 advantage at the half. Hannah Murphy had a dominant performance on both ends of the field, finishing with four goals and three assists. Tina Balzotti also had a solid game for Duxbury, scoring four goals and adding a pair of helpers. “I’m lucky that I have a very balanced attack,” said coach Kelly Jurgens. “I think we’re peaking at the right moment and I’m really impressed with our play right now. Junior Katie Smith and senior Emily Giumetti both netted three goals each. “I have five seniors that are really focused on finishing the season strong and they’re motivating the rest of the team to do the same,” Jurgens said. The Green Dragons, who average 14.3 goals a game, have two regular season games remaining until the state tournament begins.
