The intensity was higher - even for a state championship game. "Every year we come here, it's like we want it even more," Bishop Eustace junior Erin Quinn said. The Crusaders' field hockey team fell just short of a non-public state championship Saturday for the second year in a row. It lost to the same team, Oak Knoll, this time by a score of 4-2.

Less than three minutes into the game, Downingtown East opened the scoring. Luckily for Curtis, the slow start she didn't want to see ended up lighting a fire under her players, who rallied for a 3-1 victory to win Unionville's second straight title. A dozen minutes after the opening goal, with second-seeded Downingtown East dominating, Curtis called a timeout to give her players time to regroup.
