COLD SPRING HARBOR, NY - Girls prep lacrosse teams heading east to Long Island can -- and do -- often encounter choppy waters. The game is a tad bit more physical on the peninsula, and the teams are both talented and sound.

For the Summit High School Girls Varsity Lacrosse Team, which made its second trip to the 'Island in seven days, things have turned out swell.

Sophomore Katia Carnevale scored six goals, The Maroon and White amped up its draw game by winning 13 of 20 restarts, and senior captain Maddie Collins made nine saves in goal as Summit improved to 9-1 on the season courtesy of its eighth consecutive victory, 12-6 over Cold Spring Harbor.

Exactly one week ago, the girls from the 07901 had traveled to Smithtown West and emerged with a 9-7 triumph.

The Hilltoppers used a masterclass second-half performance -- outscoring the Seahawks 8-3 -- to break open a tight affair at the half. A 4-0 goal run to begin the final 25 minutes proved decisive.

After the game, Summit Head Coach Mike Walsh told that, "I think my middies did a really nice job. Today was about my middies winning the game.” He later told TAPinto Summit that, "My middles were the story of the game" specifically hailing the efforts of senior captain Stella Spotts, junior Helen Louise Johnson and sophomore Anna Griffith and Julia Szynal.

In addition to Carnevale's six-goal haul, senior captain Cecily Stabler had a pair of goals, Johnson netted a two goals and an assist, Szynal scored once an added two helpers, Anna Turk found the back of the net, and Anna Huntley-Robertson contributed three assists.

The Hilltoppers return home April 25 to face West Morris Central. Game time on the Upper Turf Field is set for 4:30 p.m.
