It was the kind of stroke a shooter wants to take, and the kind of save a goalie is not expected to make. But Archbishop Carroll's Kerri Mountz turned away Bonner-Prendergast's final attempt with her stick to seal a 3-2 stroke victory for the second-seeded Patriots in a Catholic League semifinal at Cardinal O'Hara on Monday night. Courtney Brady scored what proved to be the winning stroke one shot earlier. The third-seeded Pandas' final shooter aimed stick-side, which is the ideal place to put a stroke.
