SUMMIT, NJ - Playing their fourth tough opponent in seven days, the Summit High School Girls Varsity Lacrosse Team scored four unanswered goals in the second half, breaking a 4-4 deadlock and going on win at Mountain Lakes, 8-6.

The win comes on the heels of three consecutive conquests -- against Oak Knoll, Westfield, and Ridgewood -- all within a week’s time.
Senior captain Sara Szynal scored three times, and fellow classmates Maggie Moriarty and Samantha Forsyth each added a pair of goals as the Hilltoppers improved to 9-0 on the season.
Isabel Zachara set up Szynal to open the scoring, and Forsyth doubled the advantage before the Lakers struck twice to draw even. Forsyth, from Julia Porsche, gave Summit the lead, only to see the earlier pattern repeat itself: back-to-back Mountain Lakes goals that put the home side up 4-3.
Then, in the final seconds of the first half, Zachara set up Moriarty who found the back of the net with one second remaining. The teams went to the break with the game tied, 4-4.
The Maroon & White came out in the second half and seized the initiative and built a lead that allowed them to see the game out.
First Szynal notched her second of the game off an assist from Moriarty, who then herself was then set up by senior captain Callie Humphrey, and the Hilltoppers lead was 6-4.
Szynal’s Hat Trick goal and a tally from senior captain Catherine Cordrey made it 8-4 Summit, but then surrendered two Laker goals when they gave up possession instead of draining the clock.
Still, the Hilltoppers had enough left in the tank to close the deal, and close out a challenging but rewarding week.
Next for Summit is an April 25 match-up against Smithtown West, NY, in a game that was originally scheduled for April 9. The game, on the Upper Turf Field at Summit High School, begins at 4 p.m.

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.
