Second-seeded Episcopal Academy has forfeited its semifinal game in the Pennsylvania Independent School Athletic Association girls’ lacrosse tournament after being ruled to have used an ineligible player in Tuesday’s win over Baldwin School.

The announcement was made today by PAISAA officials after it was determined that an eighth-grader was used in EA’s 20-8 victory over Baldwin.

Baldwin School, the seventh seed, now advances to play today at sixth-seeded Friends’ Central, which defeated third-seeded Germantown Academy, 12-11, in overtime on Tuesday.
