SUMMIT, NJ - Maggie Moriarty's penchant for doling out helpers and setting up her teammates to score goals has earned her the titles of assist maestro, maven, supremo, attache and czarina, to name but a few.
The Summit High School Girls Varsity Lacrosse Team's "Duchess of Dish" took it up a notch, even by her standards, against West Morris Central, as she was credited with seven providers in the Maroon & White's 18-10 victory over the Wolfpack.
Combined with the three-goal Hat Trick she scored, the senior totaled 10 points, the second game in a row that a Hilltopper player notched double digits, with senior captain Sara Szynal achieving the feat in the 2016 season opener at Morris Catholic.
The win upped the Summit's record to 2-0 heading into their first home game of the season, April 5 versus Montclair on the Upper Turf Field at the Kent Place Boulevard campus (4 p.m. start).
After scoring the first goal of the game herself, which was assisted by senior captain Callie Humphrey 30 seconds into the contest, Moriarty got down to business, setting up consecutive tallies by Szynal. Moriarty also was the catalyst on Szynal's Hat Trick goal, the final Summit score of the half, with 2:29 remaining, which gave the Hilltoppers an 8-6 lead at the break.
In between, Isabel Zachara, unassisted, Humphrey -- from Samantha Forsyth -- Forsyth on a free position opportunity, and senior captain Julia Persche, unassisted, all notched goals for Summit.
The Hilltoppers owned the second half, winning it 10-2, as Moriarty's second and third, Szynal's fourth and fifth -- giving her 11 goals in two games -- Catherine Cordrey, Kathleen Morano, Persche's second, Zachara's second -- assisted by freshman Katia Carnevale -- Julia Harkins, and freshman Julia Szynal's first-ever Varsity goal were all part of the scoring brigade.
Moriarty assisted on four of Summit's second-half goals. On the day, the Hilltoppers won 16 draws, and goalie Maddie Collins had 11 saves.
