Bishop Eustace's Alexis DiGennaro was nervous Wednesday before her team took on Holy Cross in the South Jersey Non-Public field hockey championship. But once the whistle blew, she used those nerves to feed her determination. DiGennaro netted four goals in the Crusaders' 5-0 victory on their home field. DiGennaro's goals were a just reward, said Eustace coach Danielle Senior. The Crusaders went through several lineup changes and formations throughout the season, finally settling on three midfielders and three attackers late in the season.

Downingtown East has never been here before, but Courtney McGinty has. The Cougars assistant coach played field hockey for Downingtown before it split into two campuses 11 years ago, and was the team's cocaptain during a 1997 run that ended with a 1-0 loss to Emmaus in the PIAA Class AAA championship game. Now, Downingtown East will compete against Central Bucks South on Saturday in the school's first state-quarterfinal appearance, and McGinty is hopeful her team can make a run. She has been leading the squad since the program's head coach, Stephanie Bullock, gave birth to a girl shortly after the team's 3-1 loss to Unionville in the District 1 semifinals.

The early starting time of the Central Jersey Group 1 field hockey semifinal Wednesday forced Collingswood freshman Sara Waldron to miss her world history and gym classes. She spent that time giving a lesson in theoretical physics instead. It turns out that, when Waldron's involved, an unstoppable force can eventually wear down an immovable object. Waldron scored twice and No. 1 Collingswood overcame a monumental effort by Maple Shade goalie Dana Sheply to win, 3-2, at home. The defending champion Panthers will host No. 2 Gloucester for the title Saturday at a time to be determined.
