July 5, 2021 — A second “national championship” for girls’ lacrosse

I didn’t want to go much longer without acknowledging what happened in Farmington, Conn. last week in the inaugural Girls High School Lacrosse National Championship.

This invitational tournament saw Victor (N.Y.), the runners-up in the NYSPHSAA Section V Class B title game three weeks ago, against a Darien (Conn.) team which took on its club name, Team Tsunami, over the course of the competition.

Victor, which had lost the Section V championship to Canandaigua (N.Y.) Academy, got their revenge in the tournament, winning a semifinal game 16-9 over CA. But the offensive output the Blue Devlis showed in the semifinals was absent against the Tsunami, whose high-school alter ego won the CIAC Class L title a few weeks back.

The Tsunami defense, led by goalie Shea Dolce, held Victor to four goals in the final, while the offense scored six. Thanks in large part to attacking midfielder Chloe Humphrey, who found her opportunities and took full advantage of them.

The game saw both teams trying to value the ball as much as possible, hanging on for long stretches and making the opposition chase in the early summer heat. The result was, as you might expect, a taut and tense game with few openings.
