Sara Curley scored the game-winner as visiting Radnor notched the game’s final three goals and dealt Carondelet (CA) its first loss of the year, 11-10, on Tuesday on girls’ lacrosse action in Concord, Calif.
Grace Collins made 13 saves for Radnor – ranked No. 20 by TopLaxrecruits.com – while Shannon Quinn scored four goals and Brooke Pancoast had two goals and two assists. Radnor held the Cougars scoreless for the final 16 minutes of play.
Carondelet (7-1) was up 8-7 at half, but was held to two goals in the second half, partly due to the play of Collins and also defender Lyndsey Britton (two groundballs, two caused turnovers, two draw controls, one goal).
Carondelet’s Erin Jeffery lead all scorers with four goals and three assists, but some key turnovers by the Cougars were crucial.
“It went back and fourth all the way,” said Carondelete coach Rick Jeffery, whose team was the Northern California state champs the past two years. “They (The Raiders) are awfully good and their goalie was amazing.
“We had not played against that type of competition. We weren’t tested all year. Hopefully games like this will prepare us for the games ahead.”
