The 2014 season kicked off Saturday with 9 games being played, and right off the bat there were already two games won by only one goal as well as one overtime win.

A Few Highlights From Saturday:

Polytech 7, Sussex Tech 6 OT:  Big start for Polytech.  Sophomore Kathryn Richardson recorded a hat trick, while Jamie Trabado scored the golden goal with less than a minute left of play in overtime.  Dorian Zimmerman recorded all but one of the Ravens six goals.

Cape Henlopen 7, Academy of Holy Cross (MD) 6:  Cape kicked off their season Saturday in the same style as 2013 - with a one goal win over a strong Holy Cross team.  As I mentioned in my season previews, Holy Cross was 0-2 going into the game, but their two losses were by the number 4 ranked team in Virginia by laxpower and 9th in the nation by Lacrosse Magazine, Sts. Stephens & Agnes, and a 10-11 loss to Archbishop Spalding, which plays in the very competitive IAAM conference in Maryland.  Karalyn Joseph scored the lucky number 7 game winner with just over 2 minutes left of play, while junior Sam Broadhurst came up big in the cage recording 13 saves.

St. Mark's 13, Middletown 8:  At St. Mark's, Madelyn Baker recorded 5 goals and 2 assists.  Morgen Moran added 4 goals and 1 assist.  Alexia Johnston, Alison Pantazes, Emily Pantazes, and Christina Gotthold all had two goals a piece for Middletown.

There's still plenty of games to be played this week, to help me out if you are attending any games please tweet updates and final scores to my twitter, @DELaxJournal or use the hashtag #degirlslax!

The first of the player stats should be up within the next few days, just need to find out first names for players on some teams.  The tournament rankings (if you're new here, I don't use a computer 'formula' like laxpower or other sites but rather the actual DIAA formula the tournament committee uses to come up with the rankings) don't really tend to take shape until at least every team has played 2 or 3 games, expect the first update of the season for this to possibly be around the end of the first week of April.
