Lady Broncos in the Win Column

by Sue LaRoche The Lady Broncos finished the season on a high note as they

picked up their first victory of the season on the road against Spaulding on Friday, October 21. Brittney Lambert tallied the lone goal for the Broncos on an assist from Krissy Rowe, and that would be enough for the 1-0 victory. Goalie Tori LaRoche picked up her second shutout of the season with eight saves. The Broncos finished a disappointing 1-14-1 on the year but coach Lance McAdam saw some flashes of brilliance from a “hardworking team,” who will lose seniors Captain Kaela Craven, Jessica Roberts, Jocelyn Richardson, Krissy Rowe and Colleen Bushnach.
