Carli Sukonik pumped in 12 goals, including the game-tying tally with 56 seconds to play and the game-winner with 10 seconds left to lift Harriton to a 20-19 barnburner over Boyertown today in a District 1 girls’ lacrosse fifth-place playback.

Harriton (20-3) will play District 1 runner-up Garnet Valley in the first round of Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) playoffs on Wednesday at a site and time to be determined.

The outburst helped Sukonik set a single-season school record for goals of 114. She broke the mark set by two-time Maryland All American Anysia Fedec (112 goals in 1983).

Also for the Rams, Jess Schwab had three goals and two assists, including the pass that set up Sukonik for the winning goal. Caleigh Foust also had three goals and two assists and Katie Melvin had two goals and four assists – including the assist on the tying goal.

Amanda Smith had six goals and Kelly Furman added three goals and four assists for Boyertown (19-6), which will meet District 12 champion Archbishop Carroll in the first round of states on Wednesday.
