During the early minutes of the Northern Burlington traveling to Holy Cross girl’s lacrosse game, the Lady Greyhounds had tied this Burlington County League meeting at one apiece. Holy Cross began to keep the play mostly in the Greyhound’s end of the field which paid off. The closely competitive game gradually swung in the favor of the Lady Lancers as they scored five unanswered goals during the first half to widen their lead. Katie Foley accounted for five of the fourteen goals Holy Cross scored. With the Lancers 14-6 victory, they remain on top of the division with Moorestown right behind them in the standings.
Holy Cross, just like every other team, loss key players from last year’s squad due to graduation. And every year the team looks toward other players to step and assume the role of those lost players. For seniors Foley and Jessica Westlake, they have played up to the level of competition most have expected. When a goal was needed, Holy Cross would respond and establish control of this game. Northern Burlington would receive three goals from Justine Titko and two from Alyssa Pigott, but the Lancers were too strong as a team. Westlake would score three times, Danielle Tighe and Sam Berger both scored twice to account for the Lancers victory.
