SUMMIT, NJ - Ten different Lady Hilltoppers scored goals, as the Summit High School Girls Varsity Lacrosse Team easily beat James Caldwell High School 17-2 on the Upper Turf Field.

One half of lacrosse was all it took to decide the game's outcome, as Summit scored early and often.  After Catherine Cordrey scored, the Chiefs actually tied the game, and then the floodgates opened.  Goals from Maggie Moriarty, Sara Syznal, Cordrey again, and Emily Kalin made it 5-1.  
Caldwell's final goal of the half -- and the game -- made it 5-2, and then Summit reeled off the next and final 12 goals of the contest.
Syznal, Meaghan Celmer, Kathleen Morano, Madeleine Gramigna. Anika Becker's first goal of the season, Cordrey's Hat Trick goal, followed by Celmer's and Moriarty's second goals,  combined to make it 13-2 at the break.  

After the intermission, four more goals followed, despite the fact Summit played keep-away for long stretches of the second frame.  Julia Persche, Gramigna's and Becker's second tallies, and -- to cap it off -- a goal by Callie Humphrey, completed the rout.
"We took care of business, and got to play a lot of different kids," said Head Coach Mike Walsh.  "It also helps to provide some rest to those who have some bumps and bruises."
Summit next makes the very short trip to play at Kent Place April 16.  After a mini-break, they then take on Glen Ridge at home April 21.  Both games face-off at 4 p.m.
