All-Western New York midfielder Grace Gabriel, who scored 45 goals in 2013, picked up right where she left off Monday in Lancaster’s girls lacrosse season opener at Amherst.

Gabriel, a junior, scored seven goals in the defending Section VI Class A champions’ 18-11 win at Amherst, last year’s Class C sectional champion.

Senior Allie Stewart, another returning All-WNY player, had three goals and six assists in the victory while sophomore attack Anna Orlando had four goals.

Amherst senior Grace Lawson matched Gabriel’s output, scoring seven times for the Tigers (1-2).
