Ultimate Elite (PA/NJ) rallied for a stunning 9-8 victory over Air Khaos (GA) and nearly defeated the powerful Long Island Yellow Jackets White squad Friday as play opened in the US Lacrosse Girls’ U15 National Championships at River City Sportsplex in Midlothian, Va.us l

Air Khaos led Ultimate Elite at the half 6-2, but Ultimate Elite rallied for the win behind two goals apiece from Riley Delaney, Saige-Lyn Gidzinski and Natalie Hughes. Ultimate Elite also came closest to knocking off one of the Yellow Jackets teams, falling 12-11 to the White squad.

The Sky Walkers, the northern Maryland-based club, shut out Eagle Stix 2018 after the Georgians had closed to 3-2 midway through the first half.

Sky Walkers 2018 assisted on nine of its 18 goals, and earlier on four of seven in a five-goal win over Top Guns 2019 (N.Y.). The Marylanders joined top-seeded Yellow Jackets Blue (N.Y.), second-seeded Top Guns 2018 (N.Y.), third-seeded Yellow Jackets Gold (N.Y.), fifth-seeded 1812 Shootout All-Stars (N.Y.) and sixth-seeded Yellow Jackets White (N.Y.) as unbeatens seeded via tiebreakers.

Defending national champion Yellow Jackets Blue had little trouble, allowing just two goals in three games. Coach Carol Rainson Rose’s program swept the podium last year, and it could medal as many as two teams this time around. US Lacrosse Southeast Regional Champion Integrity Green (Md.) checks in as the seventh seed at 2-1, while central regional champion Lakeshore 2019 Orange (Ill.) struggled at 0-3 and is seeded 23rd.

First-round action begins at 8 a.m. today, which will end with the quarterfinals. Semifinals and the championship game take place Sunday.
