Megan Fisher scored with three minutes, 50 seconds to play to give host Boyertown a 12-11 victory over North Penn Wednesday in the District one Class AAA quarterfinals.
The win advanced the fourth-seeded Bears (18-3) into Saturday’s semifinals against top-seeded Radnor at 11 a.m.
Maggie Tamasitis led Boyertown with three goals while Sam Mazzie, Emily Austerberry and Lyndsey Babilon had two goals apiece. Ashley Harman made 14 saves.
Fifth-seeded North Penn (15-6) got six goals from Lauren McDermott and two from Abbie Hartman. The Maidens – who were crushed by Boyertown, 18-4, in the season’s first game – outshot the Bears, 30-20, and rallied after trailing, 9-5, at halftime.
“I knew the team we saw at the beginning of the season was not the team we would see today,” said Boyertown coach Pam Wernersbach. “We had to be prepared. North Penn made a run for it. Fortunately, we got the late lead and held the ball at the end.”
