Haverford — There are many components that comprise a championship caliber team. Coaching, and talent are imperative but another key attribute is composure. In the PIAA girls lacrosse semifinals Conestoga overcame a plethora of obstacles en route to hammering Radnor, 9-4, at A.G. Cornog Stadium at Haverford High School on Tuesday afternoon.
For the first time in the program’s history they will compete in the PIAA Championship on Saturday at noon at Hersheypark Stadium against Central League foe Garnet Valley. The Jaguars booked their place in the final with a 13-10 victory over Quaker Valley….
It wasn’t an ideal start for the Pioneers (23-3). They faced a two-goal deficit to an opponent that defeated them two weeks ago, they were scoreless the first 16 minutes of the game with two shots ringing off the crossbar. Conestoga also ommitted six first-half turnovers.
