GUILDERLAND — After a two-year drought, the rain Wednesday that postponed the Class A sectional championship game returned the Dutch to glory on Thursday in a 17-to-7 win against Shenendehowa.

The Guilderland girls’ lacrosse team had been champions five times before.

Thursday’s game was the Dutch’s from the start as standouts and co-captains Cara Quimby and Rebecca Golderman led the scoring. Quimby had nine goals and Golderman, six.

“It’s so exciting,” Quimby said after the game to a scrum of reporters and well-wishers. “I’m extremely proud of my team.”
