Colin Keegan scored off a feed from Jordan Demcher 38 seconds into the second overtime to lift Springfield-Delco past St. Joseph’s Prep, 6-5, today, in the 10th Annual Katie Samson Lacrosse Festival at Radnor High.
The victory improved the Cougars’ record to 10-1 overall. The Prep fell to 5-5.
Austin Kaut made 12 saves in goal for the Cougars and Joe Venit scored twice while Bobby Gildea, Josh Cavanaugh and Larry McLaughlin scored once each.
Jeff Heath led the Hawks with a pair of goals and Mike Zikoski was standout in the nets with 15 saves.
“We’re really fortunate to be a part of this event,” said St. Joe’s Prep coach Eric Gregg. “Peter Samson (Katie’s father) was one of my first coaches for Ashbee and a lot of my players are from this area and relish the opportunity.
“Hats off to coach (Mike) Friel (of Springfield). They got through a (tough) week by beating Conestoga and Penncrest and then by beating us. Their midfielders played well and Sparky (Kaut) was great.
“I have coached him and watched him grow and develop and he is the real deal. He is one of the best in Pennsylvania. I also think Mike Zikoski is right behind him and is keeping us in games all up and down the East Coast against great competition.”
