GIRLS' LACROSSE: York Catholic takes triple-OT thriller


In a triple-overtime thriller between a pair of traditional York-Adams League girls' lacrosse powers, York Catholic edged Kennard-Dale on Tuesday night in Fawn Grove.

The Lady Irish came into the game at 0-2 after opening with losses to two other traditional powers — Susquehannock and Manheim Township — and desperately needed a win.


That's what they got, and in dramatic fashion when Kayleigh Pokrivka scored 16 seconds into the third overtime.

Amanda Fufano (five goals, assist), Sarah Mazzur (two goals, assist) and Anna Linthicum (goal, assist) paced York Catholic's attack.

K-D, which was coming off a dominant 26-6 season-opening win at Red Lion, was led by Morgan Bowings (three goals, assist), Emmie Dressel (two goals, two assists), Megan Halczuk (three goals) and Gillian Zimmerman (two goals, assist).

Kristen Lake had eight saves for York Catholic, while Maria Schneider had 12 saves for K-D.



Red Lion 20, West York 12: At West York, Cincinnati recruit Alyssa Adams led Red Lion with seven goals and an assist, while Samantha Collis added five goals and Peyton Shima chipped in with four goals and three assists. West York’s Sydney Sweitzer matched Adams in goals, finishing with seven, while Chloe Smith had three of her own.

Eastern York 6, Central York 5: At Wrightsville, the Golden Knights prevailed in a defensive struggle. Eastern York got three goals from Addy Malone, two from Brianna Pfeiffer and one from Kylie Nikolaus. Central York saw five different players score — Emily Kurtland, Sam Kreis, Madison Kurland, Bayleigh Keator and Lauren Ogurcak. Panthers’ goalie Corrine Lawruk had nine saves.
