Washington Township is ahead of schedule, and so are the Tiernan twins. That's typical for the Minutemaids' sophomore midfielders. They always arrive faster than expected. "They have nationally ranked speed," Washington Township coach Sandy Stockl said. The Tiernans played a major role Wednesday as Washington Township built a big lead and held on for a 13-12 victory over Lenape in an Olympic Conference American Division lacrosse game. Although they combined for just one goal, the Tiernans made an impact with their ability to collect ground balls, race from end to end with the ball, and use their speed and quickness at the defensive end. "Our speed helps us out," said Megan Tiernan, the slightly faster, slightly smaller of the twins.

Friday night's showdown in boys' lacrosse between No. 1 St. Augustine Prep and No. 3 Moorestown should be a good game. It also will be for a good cause. The 7 p.m. game at St. Augustine will be part of "Jack McGetrick Night" as the two lacrosse powers combine to help raise funds for a long-time lacrosse coach. McGetrick, head coach at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Ky., is battling prostrate cancer. There will be a $2 admission charge to the game, with all proceeds going to help with McGetrick's medical costs.

According to Bob Ruoff, executive secretary of District 1, boys' lacrosse is likely to become a sport sponsored by the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association. Last week, a proposal was made by District 3 officials at a PIAA meeting in Shippensburg. There were no votes against district playoffs in boys' lacrosse - an opportunity already accorded girls' lacrosse teams. "I think the time has come for it," Ruoff said. "Lacrosse is growing in numbers and popularity every year.

Nicole McCarthy, who helped the Springfield field hockey team claim the PIAA District 1 Class AA championship just a few weeks ago, will play lacrosse on scholarship at American University in Washington. "I love the D.C. area," said McCarthy, who is a defensive wing in lacrosse. "The coach [Maureen Scott Dupcak] came to one of my hockey games. She's young, and I really like her and the team. The campus was great, not too big, not too small, and it was close enough to home. I feel I can get a lot out of the school.

On a recent cloudy Saturday morning, 42 boys aged 8 to 12 assembled on a lacrosse field behind the Folsom Boys' Club in Ridley Township for a youth lacrosse game against a team from Springfield. The game was to begin at 10, but by 10:45 the Springfield team hadn't shown up, and Matt Flynn, head coach of the Ridley junior lacrosse B team, was calling around to find the Springfield team. Meanwhile, Flynn's team played keep-away, pelting the team's sole goaltender with shots.

Bringing a National Lacrosse League team back to Philadelphia is a top priority for the league, commissioner Nick Sakiewicz said Thursday. Since the Wings moved to Connecticut in 2014, Philadelphia has been without an NLL team. "It was a legendary team, arguably should have never left here. They brought in great numbers," said Sakiewicz, a former CEO and operating partner of Major League Soccer's Union. "They had a lot of relevance in the city. " Sakiewicz was named the NLL's commissioner in January and is in his first offseason with the league.

Digit Murphy and Aronda Kirby knew there was a chance to do something different. They were convinced their idea - create a new blueprint for successful women's sports leagues - could work. They just needed to find the right sport. Murphy and Kirby had spent the last three years as the head coach and general manager, respectively, of the Boston Blades in the Canadian Women's Hockey League. To create a small amount of revenue, the Blades had to sell candy bars and raffle tickets at games.

When he was a freshman, Charlie Kitchen was 5-foot-9 and a rail-thin 130 pounds. He spent that season on the St. Augustine junior varsity lacrosse team. "I used to like speed dodging," Kitchen said, "because I was usually smaller than everyone else. " It's a striking comment from someone who measured a hulking 6-foot-31/2 and 205 pounds this year. It also goes a long way in explaining Kitchen's game. In a breakout season, Kitchen beat defenders in a variety of ways. He was nimble and quick for someone who was generally bigger than any other player on the field.

For the last 16 years, the No. 51 jersey has carried a bit more weight than any other on the Moorestown girls' lacrosse team. Many programs shy away from putting pressure on a player. But greatness is part of the Quakers tra   dition and the player handpicked to wear No. 51 is expected to deliver just that. This season, it was Quinn Nicolai's turn, and she didn't disappoint. The Inquirer player of the year in South Jersey girls' lacrosse, Nicolai was one of the state's offensive forces from the midfield, with 77 goals and 26 assists.

Southeastern Pennsylvania dominated the PIAA boys' lacrosse state playoffs this year.

Upper Dublin and Avon Grove also made it to the quarterfinals. Here is our 2016 all-area boys' lacrosse team: PLAYER OF THE YEAR Michael Sowers, Upper Dublin Hyperbolic prose would just get in the way. Sowers amassed statistics that astound on their own. The Princeton-bound attacker ended his career with 594 points, most in state history, and 402 assists, said by Lacrosse Magazine to be the most in U.S. boys' high school lacrosse history.

To hear Monica Borzillo tell it, nothing was going to stop Conestoga from winning the PIAA girls' lacrosse championship this time. Saturday morning at West Chester East, the Lady Pioneers, who finished runner-up last season, could not be denied. Conestoga ran away from Radnor, 18-7, to claim its first girls' lacrosse state championship. "We finished the season!" said Borzillo, who coupled four goals with eight assists. "Our whole goal this year was to get back here and win it. Last year, we had it ripped from us by Garnet Valley.

The Radnor girls' lacrosse season may be on the cusp of a grand finale, but the Red Raiders were on the brink of disappointment back in late April. The reason for the turnaround: trust falls, blindfolds, and, perhaps, fate. Now, Radnor (20-6) will face season-long favorite Conestoga in the PIAA girls' lacrosse state championship game at West Chester East on Saturday at 10 a.m. The game was originally scheduled for noon but moved up because of possible afternoon thunderstorms. After poor communication and even worse execution marred a disappointing home loss to Springfield (Delco)
