The Hamil­ton U11 girls’ field lacrosse Ben­gals recorded a his­toric team first on July 3: their first ever vic­tory.

The sec­ond-year team up­ended Mim­ico 7-6 in On­tario Women’s Field Lacrosse (OWFL) play, when Hamil­ton goalie Jor­dan Boyer turned away a last-sec­ond chance by Mim­ico to give the Ben­gals their first win.

The Ben­gals ral­lied in the sec­ond half from a 6-3 deficit and scored the game win­ner in the fi­nal minute. Hamil­ton goals scored by Au­drey Evans and Jil­lian Boyer with two each and sin­gles by Tianna Buonomo, Ad­di­son Holdsworth, and Reese Shig­wadja.

The win boosted the young team’s rank­ings as they work hard to make a mark for them­selves in On­tario com­pe­ti­tion, aided by a sub­se­quent sec­ond vic­tory head­ing to­ward pro­vin­cial cham­pi­onships in Oshawa on July 28-29.

Hamil­ton Lacrosse has teams in the U11, U13, U15 and U19 di­vi­sions.
