The Susquehannock girls’ lacrosse team is one win away from clinching a PIAA Class 2-A playoff berth.

The third-seeded Warriors earned a 6-4 victory over sixth-seeded Wyomissing on Wednesday night in a District 3 2-A quarterfinal contest at Susquehannock.

Rachel Stiffler (two goals, assist) and Addison Roeder (two goals) led the Warriors to the victory.

That victory moved Susquehannock to the district 2-A semifinals on Monday night, when the Warriors will face the winner of Friday’s district 2-A quarterfinal between second-seeded York Catholic (19-1) and seventh-seeded Palmyra (13-6).

With Wednesday’s win, Susquehannock moved to 16-2. Both of those losses came to York Catholic. Wyomissing finished 13-6.

It the seeds hold, and York Catholic defeats Palmyra on Friday, the Warriors and Irish will square off in the semifinals on Monday at York Catholic. If Palmyra upsets the Irish, Susquehannock will host the semifinal on Monday against Palmyra.
