SUMMIT, NJ -  Testing themselves against elite competition, the Summit High School Girls Lacrosse Team hit the road, traveling to Alexandria, VA, to take on one of the top programs in the nation in St. Stephen's & St. Agnes (SSSA) School.
Summit battled back from a two-goal deficit to tie the game at five three minutes into the second half, only to see the Saints score two goals in a span of 1:21, pulling away to a 9-7 win over the Hilltoppers. Sara Szynal had a Hat Trick to pace Summit, who trailed by three goals in the first half.
The Hilltoppers started well, taking a 1-0 lead at the 20:50 mark on a goal by junior Callie Humphrey. After SSSA drew level, Szynal took a pass from Maggie Moriarty to put Summit back in front, but the Saints rattled off the next four goals to lead, 5-2. Szynal found the back of the net with just under four minutes remaining in the half to narrow the lead to two at the break.
As they did to open the game, Summit began the second half brightly, Moriarty found Isabel Zachara and it was 5-4. It was all even after Catherine Cordrey scored unassisted 37 seconds later, and the Hilltoppers seemed poised to make a big run. The Saints answered decisively with a pair of markers, again upping their advantage to two goals at 7-5, but Szynal completed her Hat Trick at 15:11 to trim the lead back to one.
Two SSSA goals in quick succession, however, elevated the lead to 9-6, and although Julia Persche scored for Summit with just over five minutes left, the Hilltoppers would not break through again.
"We played and lost to a strong, disciplined team," said Summit Head Coach Mike Walsh. "We did some things right, and figured out some things we have to work on. The goal of the schedule is to make us better down the road."
Next Game: April 28 - @ Glen Ridge, 4 p.m.
Next Home Game: April 30 - Mendham, 4 p.m.
