It is something special, John DeMarco said, that the two best St. Joseph field hockey players he has coached in his 30-year tenure are his daughters.
And now he is preparing for his younger daughter, Emily, to surpass her older sister's mark.
Emily DeMarco scored three times Wednesday to lead the Wildcats past visiting St. Rose, 5-0, in the South Jersey Non-Public quarterfinals.
The senior bound for American University is just three goals from her sister Megan's school record of 126 career goals. Megan DeMarco graduated in 2010 and is now at St. Joseph's University.
