After a terrific regular season, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas girls lacrosse team advanced to District Championship Game. 

The Eagles, who went 7-5 in the regular season, defeated Coral Springs High School 21-3 in the quarterfinals. They then beat Spanish River Community High School Tuesday night in the semifinals 17-9.  

“This team has been working hard all season,” said Head Coach Kristina Stein. “They are really coming together and getting stronger and stronger.” 

The Eagles have received spectacular goaltending the past two games from Bree Rhodes, with Gigi Sgammato scoring three.

On Tuesday, Skylar Gerena led the team with five goals, and Taylor McGovern continued to set her teammates up.

MSD will look for the District Title when they take on Boca Raton Community High School in the final on Thursday, April 14, at 7 p.m.

The Bobcats went 15-2 in the regular season and, after having a bye in the opening round, defeated Park Vista Community High School in the semifinals. This will be the first meeting of the season between these two teams after Eagles defeated Boca Raton 21-9 a season ago in the final.
