The Ghosts’ defense, which did not receive as much notoriety as the potent Abington attack this year, also had a banner day. That unit was led by Chris Duffy and Anthony Greco, while Jesse McGinley made eight saves.
Dan Caggia had four goals to lead the Falcons (15-2, 8-2). Tim Considine added two goals and one assist.

5/11/10 – Scholastic boys: Minnich’s heroics lift Upper Merion to comeback win over Wissahickon and share of Sub 1 American lead
Phillylacrosse.com, Posted 5/11/10
Luc Minnich scored the tying goal with 25 seconds to play and then the game-winner with 16 seconds left to give host Upper Merion a stunning 10-9 triumph over Wissahickon tonight, drawing the Vikings into a first-place tie in the Suburban One American Conference with the Trojans.
Both teams are now 11-2 in the conference with one game to play. Wissahickon (11-6) faces winless Upper Moreland in its final game, but Upper Merion (13-3) has to beat fourth-place Upper Dublin (9-4) to get its shot at a tie for the crown.
The Vikes, though, appeared out of it tonight when they fell behind, 9-5, midway through the final period. But they fought back to 9-8 and then with a minute left on a man-down situation, long stick middie Ryan Flansbury made a key takeaway and fed James Brennan coming out of the penalty area.
Brennan found Minnich (six goals) for the tying goal. Upper Merion then won the face-off and Minnich tacked on the game-winner.

Zach Monzo had one eye on the scoreboard clock and the other on the ball as he positioned himself on destiny’s doorstep.
Spring-Ford teammate Casey Pettine was streaking up the right wing after Alec Orcutt’s critical draw control, and Monzo knew that time was running out. It was a freeze-frame moment for the Rams’ senior sniper, who in one slick motion, caught Pettine’s dead-on pass and one-timed it right into the back of the net.
The highlight-reel caliber conversion with 0.3 seconds remaining provided a fitting conclusion to Spring-Ford’s electrifying, PAC-10 championship-sealing 9-8 triumph over bitter rival Owen J. Roberts Thursday evening at Phoenixville’s Washington Field.
In a Pioneer Athletic Conference boys’ lacrosse final had more dramatic turns than a Quentin Tarantino screenplay, Monzo pulled off a fade-to-black finish that was hard to believe.

It took several memorable comebacks and an overtime to determine the league champions Tuesday night in a Central League season that always was hard to call.
Senior attackman Ryan Manbeck scored 2:29 into the extra period to lift host Garnet Valley to a thrilling 15-14 win over Strath Haven Tuesday night, causing a three-way tie for the Central League crown.

Academy of the New Church senior Hunter Jaronski said his team has embraced the fact it has one of the smallest rosters in the state.
“We have been battling all year with short numbers, but that’s the beauty of it because everyody is able to play and got good game time experience,” he said. “We had that ‘Next guy up’ mentality.”
Despite having just five reserves and a high dependence on freshmen, Academy of the New Church (18-3) emerged as one of the top teams in the Philly region this year. And today the host Lions won their sixth straight Friends Schools League championship by toppling rival Shipley School, 14-11.
