Lansdowne, VA (May 31, 2017) – In an unusual occurrence for this spring season, there was only a slight weather delay prior to the start of this regional girls lacrosse matchup. When the weather finally cleared, and the gates opened up, on came the Dominion Titans and the top-seeded Riverside Rams.
Chas Sumser, Viva Loudoun photographer, was there to capture the action and emotion and posted a gallery of images from the game.
There were two times when Dominion had some momentum in the match: when they tied the score at 1-1 and when they went on four-goal streak early in the second half. Other than those two brief periods, however, Riverside had the edge throughout.
Led by Rachel Giachinta’s six goals, the Rams seemed at times to be unstoppable. At one point in the first half, Riverside scored seven unanswered goals that effectively sealed the win. The aforementioned four-goal streak gave Dominion some life, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Rams’ command of the game.
Final score: Riverside 17 – Dominion 8.
