HERSHEY, Pa. - They gave the teams a five-minute break before overtime commenced at Hersheypark Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Harriton hardly needed it. It took only a few moments for coach George Dick to look across the huddle at Caleigh Foust and tell her to go and win it. She needed all of 28 seconds to do just that. Foust's overtime goal lifted Harriton to an 8-7 win over Radnor and the school's first PIAA girls' lacrosse championship. Battling a stubborn face-guard, the two-time all-American Foust scored five goals, giving her 95 for her senior season.

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. - It's not that Reilly Masterson hasn't done these kinds of things on the lacrosse field before. It's just that she never before had done them so well and so often in a game, let alone one such as this.

Radnor, the third seed from District 1, will play Central League foe Harriton in the state final at noon Saturday at HersheyPark Stadium.

Memorial Day triggers a range of memories for people, from neighborhood parades, family barbecues, and baseball tournaments to somber military services. To Frank Chiacchio, a retired Navy veteran now involved with the Battleship New Jersey moored on the Camden waterfront, Memorial Day brings faint recollections of two men he barely knew. They are his uncle Samuel Chiacchio, who died in the Allied landing at Anzio, Italy, in early 1944, and his godfather, Guy Gaufetti, who was killed the following October when a Japanese kamikaze pilot struck his troop ship in the Gulf of Leyte in the Philippines.

Melina Avery knew what people were saying about the Harriton girls' lacrosse team entering its rematch with Radnor: The Rams couldn't beat the top-seeded Red Raiders, not again. On Tuesday at West Chester Henderson, however, the Rams quieted the doubters, rolling over the Red Raiders, 15-6, in the semifinals of the District 1 tournament. "I think we really just showed today that we are the better team," said Avery, a junior goalie. "It's always good to come out and play games like that.

When Avon Grove was handed the No. 10 seed in the PIAA District 1 boys' lacrosse tournament, the Red Devils were less than thrilled with their position. "We came in with a chip on our shoulder," Red Devils captain Tanner Peck said. "We were ready to go, for sure. " Continuing their impressive postseason run, Avon Grove surprised No. 3 Conestoga, the three-time defending state champion, 6-5, in a semifinal on Tuesday at Radnor. The difference in a tightly played contest was Eric Russo's tally with 1 minute, 4 seconds remaining in the fourth period.

Last season, the Radnor baseball team got a taste of what the District 1 Class AAAA tournament is all about for the first time. This time around, the Red Raiders plan on taking a bigger bite of the apple. Adam Erkis drove in the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth Monday and ninth-seeded Radnor won at No. 8 Cheltenham, 8-7, for the first Class AAAA playoff win in school history. Connor Wilson's RBI single with two outs in the top of the sixth tied it at 7-7. Wilson had three hits and drove in two runs.
