The Lady Raiders just hosted the biggest game of their season, winning the game with a tight score of 9-8 against the Forsyth Central Lady Bulldogs, and they called it the Night of Hope. The rivalry between the two schools caused a lot of tension within the game. “There was a lot of tension due to both schools’ ongoing rivalry with each other. We have never lost against Forsyth Central, and at half-time we were losing 6-5, so the game was really intense,” said senior Hailey Yarbrough, attack player.

Both junior Grace Hanks and senior Annie Dale, goalkeepers, were reported to have a 75% saving score. One of the highlights of the game was when junior Darion Eagen, midfielder, ran in on a penalty shot and scored the winning goal. Overall, the game was a success for the Lady Raiders varsity lacrosse team.
