The Pearl River girl lacrosse team lost one of its captains, senior Kaity Creagh, to a rib injury early in Thursday's home game against Nanuet.
Losing a key veteran was not enough to slow the Pirates down. They scored the game's first six goals, built an eight-goal lead at the half and cruised to a 12-4 victory.
Senior Allison Cook scored four goals and assisted on another for Pearl River. Senior midfielder Kiera McMullan scored three goals and helped the Pirates control most of the draws as they took the game over.
Nanuet goalie Allison Pedro made 13 saves, including some tough ones in close. Shannon Booth scored four goals for the Golden Knights.
Pearl River's next game is 3 p.m. Saturday against Albertus Magnus. The Pirates are now 4-5 on the season.
