Historic lacrosse goal for LCM sophomore

Lower Cape May's Maya Critchfield races through the Holy Spirit defense to set up an offensive chance.


Maya Critchfield of the Lower Cape May Regional High School girls lacrosse team made history Friday afternoon.

Critchfield, an attacker, became the first player in program history to record her 100th career goal during her sophomore season in the Lady Tigers’ 15-3 win over Cedar Creek.

Critchfield scored five goals in the victory. Her third tally gave her the milestone goal. She also added three assists and two draw controls.

Critchfield is one of the Cape-Atlantic League’s top players. She has 65 goals and 15 assists to go with 86 draw controls through 13 games this season. She scored 37 goals as a freshman in 2017.

Junior teammate Marissa Giancola, who also surpassed 100 career goals earlier this season, scored six goals and passed out two assists for Lower (6-7) in Friday’s win.
