Rosemount didn't consider itself much of a second-half team throughout the season.

The Irish entered Tuesday ranked No. 7 in the state coaches poll, but they have five losses to their name. Many of them came in close, gut-wrenching fashion. All were to top-five teams with three coming by a one or two-goal margin.

First Report

Shakopee was up to the task of going back and forth with Rosemount’s high-powered offense for a time, but the Irish were ultimately too much.

Rosemount scored three times in the final minute of the first half to begin separating in a 19-3 win. The Irish led by four at halftime and weren’t done there, pitching a second-half shutout.

The Irish’s leading scorer, Sayla Lotysz, had all three goals for her hat trick by halftime. Abi Harris had a hat trick, all in the second half. Ava Whelan added four goals and two assists.

Nadia Rylance led Shakopee with a pair of goals.

Lexi Carl made 3-of-5 saves for Rosemount. Alli Parker made five of 24 saves for Shakopee.

Rosemount moves to 6-5 and 5-2 in the South Suburban Conference. Its five losses are all to state-ranked teams. The Irish are No. 6 in the May 16 state coaches poll.

Shakopee falls to 5-6 and 2-4 in conference play. The Sabers have dropped five straight.
