SUFFIELD – The Bristol Central girls lacrosse team fell for the first time this season in its 10-2 loss at Suffield.

Lily Hansen scored the Rams only two goals in a quiet offensive contest for the visitors.

“We couldn’t get in a rhythm and couldn’t get anything going,” Bristol Central coach Kyle Phelan said. “Suffield did a great job of taking away our strengths.” 

The Rams will look to get back in the win column when it hosts Enfield on Wednesday at 6 p.m.
