Girls lacrosse roundup: Mainland's Riley Dolan goes over 100-goal mark

Riley Dolan scored her 100th goal in the first half to become the first Mainland Regional High School player to reach the accomplishment as a junior in a 21-14 win over host Egg Harbor Township in a Cape-Atlantic League girls lacrosse game Friday.

Mainland coach Bernedette Daley said Dolan needed four goals going into the game. Dolan posted six, four in the first half, giving her 102 for her career.

"It feels great, Anna Gordon gave me two assists and Kailey Stangle gave me my 100th," the 16-year old Northfield resident said by phone. "I was glad I was able to experience that with my teammates. It was a whole team effort. I was happy we were able to win the game, too."

Gordon led the Mustangs, ranked No. 11 in the Press Elite 11, with seven goals.

For Egg Harbor Township, Courtney Eble and Mackenzie Meyer registered six and four goals, respectively.
