It was a team effort, no doubt about it. The Lady Irish from Camden Catholic's girls' lacrosse team was very determined not to let their guard down against the Lady Panthers from Collingswood. These two teams have a history of one team coming from behind and defeating the other. On this day, Camden Catholic kept their intensity during both halves of this game and quickly took control. Michelle Vittese scored six goals for Camden Catholic helping the Irish build a lead that they were able to feel comfortable about. The Irish would post a 20-6 win over Collingswood.
The way this game started out it appeared that this game was going to be very interesting. Off of the opening draw, Collingswood went right down the field and scored on Hulda Destin's goal. That’s when Camden Catholic began to take charge and Vittese was leading their effort. The Lady Irish would score the next ten goals and led by a 13-3 margin at the break and they weren’t done. To start off the second half, the Irish mounted a lead that they were very comfortable with. Breana Kilpatrick scored four goals and Kathleen Notos had three goals for Camden Catholic in this game. Collingswood was led by Caitlin Morrison who finished the game with three goals.
