Every now and then, a postgame huddle isn’t so much about the game they just played. Such was the case at times for Lady Dolphin lacrosse coach Carlee Costello Thursday after Gulf Breeze’s 11-4 loss in Gainesville to Oak Hall in a first round play-in game.

“You have to take a shot in life sometimes” was the theme Costello conveyed after the Lady Dolphins were held to a season-low goal total. “They were really good,” Costello told her team. “They have four Division I commits.”

Gulf Breeze (12-3-1) was hoping to avenge three losses by a total of six goals to Oak Hall, but the Lady Eagles (12-7) took a 5-0 halftime lead and never looked back.


Jason Thompson/Gulf Breeze News Jason Thompson/Gulf Breeze News The Lady Dolphins finally cracked the scoring column to start the scoring in the second half.

Avery Curington scored the first of her two goals with 21:50 left in the game, off a feed from KateReagan Costello. Oak Hall would score the game’s next two goals in less than two minutes (18:17, 16:38) to increase their lead to 7-1.

Curington’s second goal (and school-record 73rd on the season) made it 7-2 with 14:35 left in the game.

Abby Jacobs, who recently returned from a week and a half trip to Brazil (soccer), made it 7-3 with 13:08 left.

The Auburn Lady Tiger soccer player to be went on a 70 yard run, weaving in and out of Oak Hall players and scoring.

Oak Hall’s Mason Yonge, who set up five of the Lady Eagles’ first seven goals, scored her lone goal of the game to make it 8-3 before another Oak Hall goal with 6:58 left made it 9-3.
