OLD LYME — Playing on their home field Monday afternoon, the Old Lyme girls emphatically defeated the Westbrook Knights 5-0.

The scoring started in the first half when Alexis Fenton scored a goal off an assist from Livie Bass with 28:22 left on the clock. Fenton then reversed roles and made the assist off which Kate Walsh scored the second goal with 7:23 left in the half.

With the score at 2-0 at the half-time whistle, the game could still have gone either way.

Stephanie Mauro (#18) scored the third goal unassisted.

But Steph Mauro tipped the balance when she opened the scoring in the second half with an unassisted goal just 15 seconds after the whistle was blown.

Callie Bass then scored a goal off a pass from Kanon O’Haru with 11 minutes left.

Zoe Eastman-Grossel rounded off the scoring with seven minutes left when she netted a goal off a pass from Kate Walsh.

Freshman goalie Oliva Kelly had four saves for Old Lyme.
