Brenda McDermott had four goals, one assist and six draw controls to lead visiting North Penn to an 11-9 victory over Hatboro-Horsham tonight in a key Suburban One Continental Conference game, clinching the Maidens at least a share of the Suburban One Continental Conference title.
North Penn (15-1 overall) improved to 10-0 in the league and dropped the second-place Hatters (11-2 overall) to 8-2.
The game was the opener in a girls-boy doubleheader as part of the “Shooting for the Cure” benefit for the Mary T. Sachs Breast Center, part of Abington Memorial Hospital’s Cancer Center. The Center is a local National Cancer Center that treats many cancer patients from Montgomery and Bucks Counties.
In the nightcap, Hatboro-Horsham’s boys defeated Pennridge, 10-7. The event raised $4000 for Breast Cancer, and 35 cancer survivors from the families of the players on all four teams were honored between the girls’ and boys’ game. The attendance record for a home lacrosse game was shattered at HH Football Stadium as each team brought a large contingent of fans to cheer on the teams.
