"I feel like we can beat most anybody who we play", Peters said.

"There is a bond on this team that I have never seen in my five years of coaching", Peters said.

For the Wreckers, Christine Taylor had a hat trick, and Emma Ashe and Ellen Fair had two goals apiece. Moro finished with 10 saves, numerous acrobatic variety, and provided a great challenge for the Wave attack. "With the year of physical maturation, our midfielders will be able to play more physical defense in the defensive zone and keep some shots from coming from a less unsafe part of the field".

The Cards recorded two goals in two minutes from Blalock and senior Jillian Balog, bringing the score to 15-10.

Freshman Emma Lemanski (Wantagh, New York/Wantagh) finished with five saves in the Adelphi goal, with three ground balls and a caused turnover. But now, they hope to spring out of that slump with an experienced group of players back on the field. A big part of that, Worwa said, will come down to playing good offense and better possessions. Shannahan opened the run with a free-position goal with 20:38 to go and then Pino added her second of the afternoon, assisted by senior Brianna Doherty (Walpole, Massachusetts/Walpole), 30-seconds later, before junior Linna Jalinskas (Farmington, Connecticut/Farmington) scored her 18 goal of the year with 19:38 on the clock. They had lost 7-6 to Dover (Del.) just two days prior. We're going to keep punching.

Farmer said he does not know how long they will be out there. "It was in a very remote area and it was all hand work", he said. The brush fire in the area of Iron Bridge and Rearicks Fording Road was reported around 5:10 p.m.

Tower Hill claimed the first three face-offs of the game and converted that momentum into a 4-2 lead with 2:43 to go in the opening quarter, but they would only manage one even-strength goal the rest of the way.

The play of Moro in the net was the main catalyst for Staples, as Darien was getting looks during that span.

"Alexa made some incredible save, so credit to her", Lindley said.

Coach Kat Dennington's Gaelettes got seven goals and three assists off the stick of Megan Kreitler, and four goals and an assist from Danielle Krietler. "We shut them out in the second half, and that was with us having three penalties". Tanner was ideal through five innings in the circle and added a game-high three hits at the plate, with her courtesy runner Brittany Powell scoring twice.
