WESTFIELD, NJ - Coming off a 20-goal performance in their 'Monsoon Madness' match-up against West Morris Central, the Summit Girls Varsity Lacrosse Team's offense continued its productivity, potting 16 goals against Westfield and forcing an equal number of saves from the opposition's goalie. The nearly double-digit, 16-7 victory over the Blue Devils elevated The Maroon & White's record to 11-1 on the season and sees them win New Jersey Interscholastic Girls Lacrosse League Stars & Stripes South Division with a perfect 7-0 slate.

Sophomore Anna Huntley-Robertson had a Hat Trick and three assists, classmate Katia Carnevale scored four times, and senior captain Cecily Stabler, Anna Turk and Julia Szynal each had a pair of tallies. Senior captain Maddie Collins had seven saves in goal for the Hilltoppers.

A pair of goals from Stabler bookended a score from Huntley-Robertson as Summit rocketed out to a 3-0 lead. After Westfield got on the scoreboard, Helen Louise Johnson -- off a free-position opportunity -- found Turk who made it 4-1.

Senior captain Stella Spotts made it 5-1, and a pair of Szynal scores and a snipe from Carnevale upped the advantage to 8-3 at halftime.

The second half featured a near-symmetrical scoreline. Two goals from Huntley-Robertson -- who assisted on Turk's second -- were complimented by a goal from Anna Griffith, who was set up by Anna DiSibio. For good measure, Carnevale tacked on the Hilltoppers final three goals.

Summit now enters Union County Tournament play May 3 against a yet-to-be-named opponent. Game time is expected to be 7:30 p.m. at AL Johnson High School.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
