Lady Bucs lead West to 8-7 win in WVSLA All-Star Game

FAIRMONT – The six Buckhannon-Upshur Lady Buc lacrosse players selected for the 2022 WVSLA All-Star game certainly made their presence known in the contest Saturday at East-West Stadium.

The West All-Stars, which is the squad the Buckhannon-Upshur players were on, was also led by the Buckhannon-Upshur coaching staff of head coach Jamie Greene and assistant coach Dave Lewellyn.

The West won a close game by 8-7 with B-U’s Miranda Greene tallying three goals including the game-winner with under a minute remaining.

The East All-Stars came back and tied the game at 7-7 but with under a minute to go, we got the ball to Miranda and she put in the game-winning shot. It was a great win for the West All-Stars.”
