Sophomore goaltender Sophie Fitzpatrick shutout the Marshfield Rams in her first varsity start, as the Lady Dragons rolled to a 3-0 win in the season opener for both teams last Friday afternoon in Marshfield.
Senior captain Mimi Smith gave her team an early lead when she broke down the left side and fired a shot to beat the Marshfield netminder for a 1-0 lead.
Siobahn McCarthy would give Duxbury an insurance goal five minutes later on a penalty corner, and Briana Connolly would close out the scoring in the second half with another penalty corner.
â€œSophie did a nice job in net and really helps our defense with her big clears,â€ said Coach Pam Manley. â€œIt was nice to beat Marshfield after losing to them twice last year, but we can play better than we did. We werenâ€™t playing under control and Iâ€™m sure the rain had a lot to do with it.â€
The team will entertain Notre Dame on Wednesday afternoon at 3:45 p.m.
