SCHUYLERVILLE — Carly Wise opened the scoring just seconds into the game, and the Saratoga Springs varsity girls’ lacrosse team never looked back en route to a 8-5 victory over Shaker in the Section 2 Class A Championship on Wednesday.

Wise scored three goals to lead the Blue Streaks, with Faith Britton scoring twice. Allie Shamberger had a goal and two assists, with Janie Baringer adding a goal and an assist. Emery Judge also scored a goal for Saratoga, while goaltender Jenna Amodio made 10 saves.

Shaker hung with Saratoga early on, tying the game at 2-2 with 16:41 left in the first half on a goal by Ava Scattareggia, but back-to-back Blue Streak goals by Britton gave Saratoga a 4-2 lead entering halftime.

Wise scored early in the second half to extend the lead to 5-2 before Emery Judge quickly followed with a goal of her own, giving Saratoga a 6-2 advantage.

Shaker was able to get within two goals, with tallies by Sarah Bette and Kacie Pilla cutting the lead to 6-4 with 14 minutes left, but the Blue Streaks held strong defensively before pulling away in the final minutes.

Wise scored her third goal with 6:11 left to extend the lead to 7-4, and Shamberger followed with a goal to make it 8-4 with four minutes remaining. Lauren O’Hagan scored for Shaker with 1:03 left, but the Bison were unable to mount a rally further, with Saratoga sealing an 8-5 victory.

It is the first Section 2 title for Blue Streaks’ head coach Jennifer Furze, in her first season leading the varsity team, and the first for the Saratoga girls’ team since 2018.

Saratoga (14-5) will play the Section 1 Class A Champion in the NYSPHSAA Sub-Regionals at 7:30 p.m. on May 30 at Schuylerville High School.
