NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - The weather - wet and windy - was certainly an issue although it seemed to affect only the fans in the stands who were soaked to the bone by the end of the lopsided New Providence boys and girls lacrosse victories on Tuesday.
The Lady Pioneers seemed to revel in the conditions as they powered past Scotch Plains-Fanwood, 17-8, behind 8 goals by freshman Kaitlyn Cuminskey. In addition to the 8 goals, Cuminskey recorded three ground balls and five draw controls to help the Lady Pioneers improve to 5-2 on the year.
Senior Sam Scott continued her strong play recording four goals, five assists and three ground balls controlled; junior Elena DelDuca tacked on a two-goal/two-assist effort; and Kate Marzynski, Sadie Miller, and Iris Kaloshi tacked on a goal each.
Senior Sarah Zeto turned in an impressive performance, making 10 saves while allowing 8 goals.
The New Providence boys lacrosse (5-5) team pulled off a 15-6 major win on the road Tuesday against Oratory Prep.
Junior Jack Barletta scored a game high five goals and Tyler Lawton tacked on three goals with four assists, Joe D'Anna and Jack Gertie added a pair of goals a piece to pace the Pioneers. Michael Garrity and Thomas McGrath rounded out New Providence's scoring while Patrick Trezza backstopped the Pioneers’ win in goal recording seven saves
The Lady Pioneers are back in action Thursday when they travel to Gov. Livingston with a 4:30 p.m. start, while the boys lacrosse team will play in Scotch Plains on Thursday with a 4 p.m. start.
