5/30/12 – PIAA girls’ playoff: Quinn goal with 14 seconds left gives Radnor a 15-14 win over Hatboro-Horsham

By Harry Chaykun, Posted 5/30/12

Last week, after her Radnor High team had defeated defending state champion Garnet Valley in the semifinal round of the district tournament, Red Raiders coach Brooke Fritz said that junior Shannon Quinn had been her team’s “go-to girl” in the second half of the season.

Wednesday afternoon in the opening round of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association tournament at West Chester East High’s Zimmerman Stadium, Radnor went to Quinn with the game on the line – and she delivered again.

Quinn scored the game-winning goal against Garnet Valley last week, then Wednesday she fired in the shot that lifted the District 1 champion Red Raiders past Hatboro-Horsham, District 1’s seventh seed, 15-14.

The win advances Radnor (20-4) into the state quarterfinals Saturday against the Wyoming Seminary-Cocalico winner at a site and time to be determined.
