MENDHAM, NJ - Athletes are creatures of habit, grounding their efforts and performances in routine and repetition. Student athletes are no different, so -- during Spring Break -- when the 'student' part of that equation is temporarily suspended, performances can be unpredictable.

Such was the case when the Summit High School Girls Varsity Lacrosse Team traveled to face a tough West Morris Mendham team, a contest that was perhaps made even more mentally challenging due to the fact that it was a 'sandwich game', arriving immediately after the Hilltoppers' emotional 10-9 Overtime victory over cross-town rival Oak Knoll and just before a tilt against powerhouse Ridgewood.

The Maroon and White, while not at their best, did enough to see off the Minutemen 12-10 and improved to 4-0 on the season. Junior Katia Carnevale had a Hat Trick, while a trio of 'Toppers -- senior captain Helen Louise Johnson and juniors Anna Huntley Robertson and Julia Szynal -- each notched a pair of goals.

Senior captain Amy Martino stopped 13 shots in goal to earn the win. Senior captain Anna Turk, classmate Emily Paytas, sophomore Sophie Zachara also found the back of the net for the Hilltoppers.

Ashley Peck (3), Megan Graziano (3) and Jessica Beneducci (2) paced the West Morris Mendham attack, while Jackie Egerter and Adrienne Impellizieri split time between the pipes, with each credited with six saves.

After taking a 6-3 first-half lead, Summit carried a 12-8 lead into the final four minutes and withstood a late Minuteman charge to get the 'W'.

Next up for the Hilltoppers is that Titanic match-up against the Maroons, which will take place April 12 on the Upper Turf Field. Game time is set for 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.
