Posted: May 18, 2012

Laurel Falana contributed six goals and two assists, Clark netted five goals and Taylor Ng scored five times for fifth-seeded Haddonfield, which advances to Friday's quarterfinal at No. 4 seed Bishop Eustace.

Maple Shade, seeded 12th, received hat tricks from Kacie Booth, Samantha Reader, and Allie Vallen.

Burlington County. New Egypt doubled-up host Delran, 22-11, behind nine goals by Emma Bunce.

The Warriors received multiple goals from six players, including four by Courtney Natalicchio and a hat trick by Danielle Andreula.
