Pennsylvania – featuring players mostly from the Philadelphia region – won three games today as it began to make its move in the National Lacrosse Classic at Germantown, Md.
Pennsylvania, which had fallen to New England, 11-9, in its opener on Wednesday, topped Long Island, 10-7, Washington D.C., 14-6, and Michigan, 16-10.
Team PA – coached by Great Valley’s Joe Tornetta – will play Long Island East in the semifinals Friday at 8 a.m.
The PA attack has been led by Great Valley’s Ali Karwoski and Catherine Shaughnessy, Bishop Shanahan’s Summer Jaros and Caroline Kuchinsky, Conestoga’s Mackenzie Orr, Souderton’s Elizabeth Mower and Agnes Irwin’s Eliza Moran.
The defense has been led by Great Valley’s Jacqueline Moccia, while Kelly Petillo (Manasquan, NJ) and Hannah Houde (Jackson, NJ) have played strong in the goal.
“The kids have really come along and played well the past few games,” Tornetta said.
