Girls’ lacrosse: Interboro tops Harriton, claims share of Del-Val

By Willie McGonigle, Posted 5/14/08

After giving up late leads in its last two Del-Val League games, Interboro made the clutch plays Wednesday.

The host Bucs got standout goaltending from Melissa Jenkins and four goals each from Kerri Boon and Steph Parcell to claim a critical 10-8 triumph over Harriton in a game that forced a three-way tie for the Del-Val League championship.

The outcome left Interboro, Harriton and Sun Valley atop the league with 6-2 mark. All three teams are hopeful of earning berths in the District 1 tournament, which begins next week.

The Bucs were coming off recent heartbreaking defeats to Harriton, 8-7, and Sun Valley, 15-14. In each case Interboro lost the lead at the end; in fact the Bucs had a 10-4 halftime pad on the Vanguards.

This time, Interboro jumped to a 5-0 lead, but found itself ahead just 9-8 late in the game. Jenkins, though, made numerous saves and finished with 15 in all while the Bucs’ defense forced enough turnovers to stymie the comeback.

“It’s an awesome feeling,” said Boon, who will study nursing and play lacrosse at Gwynedd-Mercy College. “Even through we lost (those two games), we just kept working hard to accomplish our goal.”
