The sun was shining as the Thunder looked to avenge last season’s loss in the finals to Sacred Heart Academy as they had a rematch in the MML Semi-Finals. The game started off close, with the Thunder leading 2-1 with 18:23 left in the first half. After a timeout, the Thunder came out flying and went on 7-2 run at half time.
Senior Captain Catherine Meegan, scored her 100 career goal during the game to help take the Thunder to the Finals. This is the 11th consecutive trip to the Finals in women’s lacrosse for the Mount. The Thunder will take on Nardin Academy in the championship at 4:15 pm on Friday, May 29 at Nichols School.
