CHESTER, NJ - Pedigree and talent notwithstanding, the probability was high that the team that next faced the Summit High School Girls Varsity Lacrosse Team was, to use a non-scientific term, in for it.

Having just dropped their first game of the season -- a 9-8, last-minute decision to rival powerhouse Ridgewood on the Upper Turf Field -- the girls from the 07901 had to be smarting a bit, but the smart money was calculating that, while they have likely already put the loss behind them, the setback would primarily serve to further sharpen the focus of Head Coach Mike Walsh and his team.

So, when the Hilltoppers nearly dropped a 20-spot on West Morris Central, it was not surprising, with the 19-6 victory featuring goals from no less than 11 Summit girls. Junior sharpshooter Katia Carnevale led the scoring parade with five goals, and a trio of her classmates -- Anna Griffith (3), Anna Huntley-Robertson (2) and Julia Szynal (2) -- contributed seven tallies between them.

Summit, now 5-1 on the season, led 11-2 at the end of the first half, then went out and threw down an 8-4 second half for good measure. Senior captain Amy Martino made five saves in the win.

Lauren Hamilton had a big day for the Wolfpack, scoring four times. Rachel Wells had four assists to go with a goal for a five-point day.

Other Summit scorers included three players -- sophomores Bridget Moriarty, Kayleigh Driscoll and freshman Rileigh Meyer -- who each notched their first-ever Varsity goals, and seniors Helen Louise JohnsonEmily Payas, Ava Spotts -- who also had three assists -- and sophomore Sophie Zachara all found the back of the net.

The Hilltopper stay on the road, traveling to Randolph April 18. Game time is set for 4 p.m.
