SUMMIT, NJ - Senior attack Samantha Forsyth took a feed from assist savant Maggie Moriarty and scored with 23 seconds remaining, capping a three-goal, second-half comeback and giving the Summit High School Girls Varsity Lacrosse Team a 7-6 triumph over Eastport South Manor at Cold Springs Harbor High School. The Hilltoppers, who trailed 6-4 in the second half, improved to 6-0 on the season.

Senior attack Isabel Zachara, along with senior captains Sara Szynal, Callie Humphrey and Julia Persche, all scored in a first half that ended deadlocked at 4-4, before Forsyth -- from Moriarty -- narrowed the Sharks' lead to 6-5.

Senior captain Catherine Cordrey drew the Maroon & White level, before Moriarty and Forsyth recreated their earlier partnership to produce the late-game heroics.

Maddie Collins had three saves in goal for the Hilltoppers.

“I thought our defense played very well today,” said Summit Head Coach Mike Walsh. “When we needed stops in the second half they came up big as a unit, giving our offense a chance to win the game.”

Summit returns home to 'the friendly confines’ of the Upper Turf Field for a pair of tough games, taking on Westfield April 18 and Ridgewood April 20 before heading back out on the road to face Mountain Lakes April 22. Game time for all of the contests is set for 4 p.m.

Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
