P.J. Finley won the face-off to open overtime and scored the game-winner just 13 seconds into the extra frame today to lift Malvern Prep to a 7-6 victory over host Penn Charter today in an Inter-Ac League boys’ lacrosse opener.
Finley won 13 of 17 face-offs overall and Jake Glancy scored twice for the Friars (3-3). Matt Barrett made nine saves.
“Coach (Kurt) Fisher, (MP F/O coach) and I decided to play with Penn Charter’s wing guys and try to be unpredictable,” Finley said. “I had thoughts about going forward in overtime, but (Tommy) Monzo, (PC player) was protecting the fast break so I went behind to myself and thankfully it worked out.”
For PC (4-7), Shane Carr and Kevin Murphy each had two goals and an assist and Tyler Earley scored two goals. Jackson Tamasitis had 12 saves and played standout goal especially in the second half when the Quakers forged a comeback from a 6-2 halftime deficit.
Penn Charter has lost four games by one goal, three in overtime. The other three losses are by three or fewer goals.
