It’s been quite a day thus far. Got cut off by a hay truck on Rt. 39, then forgot to buy Advil for my boogered-up left foot that I injured GOLFING.

Then the Hersheypark Stadium wireless wasn’t working, so it took 10 minutes to get online. Fun, fun, fun.

Bottom line: There’s 5 minutes left in the first half of the second PIAA Girls Lacrosse championship, and Radnor, which is on fire hitting the net, leads Springfield-Delco 7-3.

And I’m going to be honest. This is the first high school girls lacrosse game I’ve ever attended. Ever. So if you want to follow an update from someone who actually knows what he’s talking about, click onto Chris Goldberg’s updates at phillylacrosse.com here. Chris knows his stuff. Me? I get stuck behind hay trucks.

But we’ll give it the ol’ Delaware County try just the same:

OK, now it’s 8-3, Radnor, after a goal high by Courtney Campbell

End of first half: Radnor 8, Springfield-Delco 3

—-

Start of 2nd half:

Radnor leads, 8-3

Annie Woehling of Radnor with another nice save .. about 5 for her

Springfield’s Alex Poplaweski squeezes one low past Woehling at 21:45 of the third … Radnor leads 8-4

Radnor comes right back on a goal byAllie Martin (her third) from Kelyn Freedman from behind the net … Radnor leads 9-4

Radnor keep charging … Amalia Antonoplos slides in unassisted for goal at 19:52 … Radnor 10, Springfield-Delco 4

Springfield comes back immediately on Nathalie Basunga’s unassisted goal at 19:38, just 14 seconds later … Radnor 10, Springfield-Delco 5

Springfield making a charge … Basunga scores again at 18:19 after a vrey nice loop pass from Valerie Paolucci … Radnor 10-6

Nice save by Springfield keeper Janel Folkomoer. We mention it it because she’s had a rough day; that save was her first.

Springfield in trouble now. Radnor’s Courtney Campbell scores her third goal at the 10:59 mark, assisted by Alli Kelly … Radnor 11-6

Well, the Cougars aren’t dead yet. Freshman Lauren Notofrancesco comes from behind the net to fire one past Woehling at 9:12 … Radnor 11, Springfield 7

Good ball movement by Radnor results in a big goal. Ellie Krause scores on a bounce from the left side after a sharp pass from Kristen Norden at the 7:56 mark. .. Radnor 12-7

Radnor gets a tighter grip on the game now. Courtnet Campbell scores her fourth on an assist from Allie Martin at 7:34 … Radnor 13-7

All but over now … Radnor’s Kelyn Freedman fires high past Folkomoer for a goal at 5:00 … Radnor 14, Springfield-Delco 7

Radnor is icing the ball … Under a minute now

That’s it … Radnor wins its second straight PIAA title, 14-7 … Radnor keeper Annie Woehling was outstanding, making several saves and keeping Springfield at arm’s length throughout the game

Chris Goldberg of www.phillylacrosse.com reports that Radnor is now 75-2 over the last three seasons. The only loss this year by the Raiders was an overtime upset to Strath Haven.

 

OK, I admit it: I miscalculated some of the time it would take to keep the site fully updated during the district and state playoff season. I haven’t written a thing in two weeks and haven’t kept The Ticker updated. Lesson learned.

So, in an attempt to get back to basics, here are some of stories from local newspapers regarding Tuesday’s PIAA girls’ spring soccer and PIAA lacrosse semifinals. I promise I’ll do my own work for the state finals.

PLEASE NOTE: The time of the PIAA Class AA soccer championship game between Trinity and Donegal is now 1 p.m. instead of 5 p.m. Donegal has graduation Friday evening.
