Serving the scholastic field hockey and lacrosse community since 1998

Apr. 29, 2017 — Rosemont Agnes Irwin (Pa.) 6, Pottstown Owen J. Roberts (Pa.) 4

POSTGAME We’ll be back around noon for the Glen Mills Garnet Valley (Pa.) vs. Radnor Archbishop Carroll (Pa.) match

POSTGAME But the Owls defense, particularly the Cornell-bound Andress in goal, were very stingy indeed

POSTGAME Agnes Irwin almost fell into OJR’s trap as they slowed the pace of the game

FULL TIME The horn sounds with Agnes Irwin winning 6-4

49:00 AIS runs the stall 

48:20 OJR FP Andress shuts the door

48:00 Roberts wins the draw, working it around slowly

46:50 OJR FP and GOAL Sydney Drumheller with the bouncer; Wildcats trail 6-4

43:00 OJR is patient; almost too patient with the deficit being three goals 

40:10 OJR FP Dempsey with a chance from top dead center, but Andress with a big stop!

35:30 OJR with sustained possession, but not getting off a telling shot

32:20 OJR GOAL Francesca Carroll gets the EWO goal from a Dempsey feed; AIS leads 6-3

31:20 AIS YELLOW Macaione is off for a check towards the head; her first card, team second 

25:55 AIS FP and GOAL Maria Pansini from the center-right hash; AIS leads 6-2

25:00 The second half is under way

HALFTIME The score thus far is not indicative of Roberts’ initiative; the Wildcats have not had much luck against Andreas, and have been guilty of ill-advised turnovers in the attack end

HALFTIME The half ends with Agnes Irwin leading 5-2

24:59 OJR FP and GOAL Eloise Geber bounces it in! Roberts trails 5-2 but last-second goals lend themselves to momentum swings

22:00 Now they run the attack but hit goalie Hailey Andrews in the feet; unlucky!

21:00 OJR is content to hold the ball

15:31 AIS YELLOW Alexandra Hark is booked for a dangerous shot; her first yellow, team first 

15:05 AIS GOAL Lila Barker with a nice move to get open and finishes! Owls up four

12:44 AIS TIMEOUT

11:00 AIS FP Emma Machione from the center hash; goalie Mia Tornetta makes the save

10:15 OJR TIMEOUT

10:00 AIS FP and GOAL Bounce shot by Lila Barker from the right hash; Owls up 4-1

5:30 AIS GOAL Owls’ Alexandra Hark converts on the passing play and take a 3-1 lead

3:50 OJR GOAL Kelsey Kilgallon pulls one back for the Wildcats, who trail 2-1

3:30 OJR FP Anna Dempsey hits the post!

2:02 AIS GOAL Marina Pansini bounces it in from the heart of the arc;  it’s 2-0 Owls

0:53 AIS GOAL Sydney Wolfington scores on a nifty shot from a tight angle on the left wing; Owls lead 1-0

0:00 The game is on

PREGAME OJR is in the all red with black and white trim; AIS is in white with yellow and black trim

PREGAME The teams are warming up under cloudy skies with temperatures about 70 degrees 

PREGAME But it also is a showcase of Pennsylvania lacrosse; six out of the eight PIAA quarterfinalists are here today, as well as all four PAISAA semifinalists

PREGAME This annual fundraiser is now the largest scholastic lacrosse tournament in the country

PREGAME This is just one of more than two dozen games in the 17th annual Katie Samson Laxfest

PREGAME Irwin is 11-2 this season; Roberts is 12-1

PREGAME Hello, and welcome to Encke Field on the campus of Radnor (Pa.) High School for this intersectional matchup between Pottstown Owen J. Roberts (Pa.) and Rosemont Agnes Irwin (Pa.)
