The Inter-Lakes girls' soccer team ended last week with a record of 5-2 after splitting a pair of matches.
The Lakers ended the week with a 5-0 home win against rival Moultonborough in the homecoming game on Friday. After a big defeat the day prior against White Mountains, the Lakers came ready to defend and stay undefeated on their home turf. Caitlin Rotonnelli started with 2 goals in the 1st half and added a third in the 2nd with assists from Kaylee Converse, Chloe Davis, and Emelia Pendergast. Pendergast soared a long range direct kick into the net and Sarah Dunlap finished off the final goal in the half with a Rotonnelli assist. Strong defense kept Moultonborough to a limited number of shots for the day. Rotonnelli's streak of hat tricks have helped boost the Lakers to a 5-2 record as they headed into their third straight game on Monday at Prospect Mountain.
On Thursday, Inter-Lakes traveled to White Mountains for a 6-3 defeat. With 2 starting defenders out of the game, the Lakers came out flat in a scoreless 1st half while letting White Mtn score 3. The 2nd half was a bit more organized for the Lakers but White Mountain overpowered and out shot Inter-Lakes for another 3 goals. Caitlin Rotonnelli came away with her 4th hat trick of the season scoring three times in the 2nd half.
