WASHINGTON (WUSA 9) -- With just under four minutes left in the first half, the Madeira girls' varsity lacrosse team led Georgetown Day School by just two points. The score was locked at 5-3, and while the Snails were playing solid defense under the leadership of goalie Ingrid Boyum, they were struggling to execute on offense.
At the half, the team circled around Madeira head coach Katie Lamade to regroup; the players who hit the field minutes later were recharged and unstoppable. Goals from Annika Adstedt and Brie Perkins set Madeira on a seven-goal scoring streak.
"I always tell the girls to do the easy -- to be really disciplined and work together as a team -- and I thought they did that today," said Lamade.
The Snails defeated Georgetown Day 12-3 and will face off against Potomac Monday afternoon.
