Senior Hanna Ashby was a force in goal March 19 as she led the Paul VI Panthers over the Bishop O'Connell Knights 12-5 in girls' varsity lacrosse. The game was played in Fairfax.

Ashby's athleticism and aggressiveness around the goal prevented the Knights from mounting any serious offensive threat.

Offensively, the Panthers relied upon juniors Hannah Kurisky and Bailey Koehler to force their way into prime scoring positions.

For the Knights, it was a far cry from their March 18 game against Saint John Paul the Great High School in which they scored 21 goals. Senior Shannon Cross was the lone bright spot for O'Connell.

In a weekend tournament at Annandale High School, the Knights won two games and tied the host team, 14-14.
