Eddie Bambino scored two third-quarter goals, Colin Still had two goals and an assist and goalkeeper Danny Carr was brilliant in the cage as 12th-seeded Penn Charter toppled fourth-seeded Ridley, 7-5, Wednesday at Conestoga in the completion of a suspended quarterfinal playoff game in the Eastern Pennsylvania Scholastic Lacrosse Association.
The Quakers (16-11) will face top-seeded Malvern Prep in the semifinals Friday night at Garnet Valley (8 p.m.).
The game was tied, 3-3, when lightning forced postponement Tuesday night late in the opening half. Joey Sankey scored when play resume to give Penn Charter a 4-3 lead, but Tyler Johnston (three goals) tied it for the Raiders (19-3) early in the second half before Bambino’s two tallies made it 6-4.
PC coach Pat McDonough credited Carr (15 saves) with one of his best games of the year. The Raiders outshot the Quakers, 28-17, but Carr was masterful in the final period when he posted six saves – many at point-blank range
McDonough also cited the efforts of defenders Ryan McGarvey and Liam Resch and face-off specialist Andrew Murray. Ryan Goldman scored two goals in the first period Tuesday before the lightning.
Brett Greer and Brian Hill also scored for Ridley.
