Kingston Defeats – Hannah Timbrouck, a senior at Kingston High, was aware that her team’s season was on the line as she raced toward the Shenendehowa goal in the dying seconds of the Section 9 Class A girls lacrosse state playoff game that took place on Tuesday at the oppressively hot Rondout Valley High School.
How Kingston Lost To Shenendehowa
Kingston High senior Hannah Timbrouck knew the season was on the line as she sprinted toward the Shenendehowa goal in the waning seconds of Tuesday’s Section 9 Class A girls lacrosse state playoff game at sweltering Rondout Valley High School.
With the Tigers trailing 10-9 and the clock ticking down to a precious few seconds, Donatella DeCicco hit Timbrouck with a perfect pass over the middle, and Timbrouck uncorked a hard
shot from about five yards out toward the goal.
But Plainsmen goalie Mikaela Dattilo blocked Timbrouck’s bid to tie the game and the Plainsmen collected the rebound and ran out the clock to preserve the thrilling 10-9 win.
It was a heartbreaking loss for Kingston (10-6), which rallied from a 5-1 deficit in the first half to take several second-half leads.
When Timbrouck scored her third goal of the game, the Tigers led 9-8 with 6:23 remaining.
Shenendehowa midfielder Kelly Augeri scored back-to-back goals to put the Plainsmen ahead 10-9 with 3:43 left.
That set up the wild final sequence when Timbrouck almost tied it up after coach Clay Bouton called a timeout to set up a final play with the Tigers needing to cover a lot of ground from
their side of midfield.
“We only had about 30 seconds left and the play was to get it downfield and get a shot off,” Timbrouck said. “We were mainly looking to get it to Norah Prizzi because she is one of
our main shooters. But I saw an opening and I thought I could get it. Maybe one more little fake and maybe I could have gotten that in. It’s upsetting that it didn’t go in, but there’s nothing I can do about it now.”
Bouton was proud of his team’s comeback after falling behind 5-1. He thought the Tigers took too many penalties in the early going that led to the Plainsmen (12-4) getting off to a
“We kind of shot ourselves in the foot today,” he said. “Too many yellow cards in the first half. We had to play down players and I think they scored at least three goals out of that. And
three goals is a big difference in this game.”
Prizzi tallied three goals in the first half to start the Tigers’ comeback and KHS pulled to within 6-5 at the half on Timbrouck’s first goal with 5.2 seconds remaining. DeCicco had
Kingston’s other first-half goal.
Arianna Burns, Abigail Kresser, and Timbrouck scored three straight goals for the Tigers to pull ahead 8-6 with 22:39 left in the second half…
