Tues. Pa. girls' roundup: Notre Dame races past Carroll

Posted: September 12, 2012

Notre Dame was threatened early on Tuesday afternoon but bounced back in the second half to stay undefeated and top visiting Archbishop Carroll, 4-2, in nonleague field hockey action.

The two teams went back and forth in a close first half, but Carroll took a 2-0 lead on goals by Katie and Megan Kelly. Notre Dame's Moira Putsch scored for the Irish to cut Carroll's lead to 2-1 at halftime.

In the second half, senior Nina Diamond started the momentum swing for Notre Dame by scoring off an Emily Faught assist and tie the game at 2.

Faught added one of her own with 12 minutes left as she flicked in a rebound off Putsch's miss for a go-ahead goal. Diamond's second goal of the game a few minutes later completed Notre Dame's fourth straight win.

Archbishop Carroll goalkeeper Becca Brosious stopped 17 shots in the loss.  

Public. Four players - Victoria Barraza, Barbara Danhardt, Megan Elmer, and Salena Powers - scored for Washington, helping the Eagles to a 4-1 win at Central.

Washington goalie Kaitlin Sommers stopped three of the four shots she faced. The one that got by her came with less than two minutes left in the game, denying her the shutout.

Francesca Campanaro and Cierra Jeffries each scored twice to lead Northeast past visiting Girls High, 5-0.  

Central. Senior Becca Lucci scored on two loose rebounds to give Strath Haven a 2-0 home win over Garnet Valley. She lifted both rebounds over the Garnet Valley goalkeeper, and Caroline Boyd recorded a shutout on the other end with four saves.
