Lady Bulldogs Top Exeter In Fourth Quarter Thriller

Klee Leister

Daniel Boone High School hosted No. 1 Exeter and No. 3 Wilson during Girls BCIAA Lacrosse Championship action.

Both teams struck early with strong offensive drives met by great defensive pressure. Exeter’s Hailey Leister cashed in early, taking her Eagles to a 1-0 lead with 17:30 remaining in the first half. However, Wilson’s Maddie Klee responded with a goal of her own, taking the Lady Bulldogs within a goal of Exeter’s 2-1 lead. Klee contributed again to the Wilson cause, bringing about a 4-4 tie with under 9:00 remaining in one. However, at half, Exeter seemingly held off the Bulldog assault, topping Wilson 8-6.

Taking advantage of a second half penalty, Wilson brought the game to a 9-9 tie with 15:50 left. Lexie Gunderson’s two late goals took Exeter to a 11-9 lead with just under 12:00 remaining. However, a strong offensive drive brought the Bulldogs to a 12-12 tie with under 5:00 in the game. Klee’s crucial goal gave Wilson the late 13-12 edge with under 4:00 remaining, and the Bulldogs never looked back.

After topping Mifflin on Tuesday evening, Wilson senior Maddie Terefenko said, “beating a team like Mifflin, who beat us twice before gives us the type of confidence that we need to play a team like Exeter”. Terefenko and her teammates certainly exuded that confidence as they claimed the BCIAA title on Thursday.

The Bulldogs were led by Maddie Klee, who scored 7 goals for the second consecutive game.  Klee had been held scoreless the last time Wilson played Exeter, a week ago.
