The Archbishop Carroll girls’ lacrosse team prides itself in playing a tough non-league schedule.
The Patriots knew what kind of challenge they would face when they learned they would be taking on Springfield-Delco, one of the stronger Central League teams and – like Carroll – a team that hopes to make noise in the PIAA Class AA tournament, which begins in about a month, at the 19th Katie Samson Foundation Lacrosse Festival.
Carroll used its superiority on draw controls as well as a standout effort in goal from senior Julia Dellarata in earning a 12-7 decision over Springfield on Radnor High’s Encke Field Saturday morning.
