Warwick’s comeback falls just shy
The comeback appeared to be complete.
With the Warwick girls lacrosse team having rallied from a seven-goal deficit in the final 5:37 to tie Hempfield 13-13, junior Marleise Emrhein found the back of the net for the apparent game-winner.
Except for one thing.
The horn ending regulation sounded just before the ball went into the cage.
“If it was an NCAA Tournament game, I’m sure they would have reviewed it,” Warwick coach Eric Jeanes quipped. “The girls were excited obviously because that would’ve been pretty huge comeback.”
In the end, the Lady Knights escaped Warwick’s come-from-behind effort, getting a sudden-victory goal by Sammy Helgeson in the second of two OT periods to lift her team to a 14-13 win in Landisville.
“They did a good job of calming down (following the disallowed goal by Emrhein),” Jeanes said. “It’s not like Hempfield came right out and scored a goal or anything like that. We both had chances (in the first overtime session).”
The Warwick girls also did a good job of keeping themselves in the game after Hempfield &tstr; led by Helgeson’s four goals &tstr; took a 9-2 lead at the half.
Playing a better transition game following the break, Warwick created some momentum.
“Instead of waiting for them to get their defense set up, we kinda scored a little bit more off the transition and fastbreak, which helped us get back into it pretty quick,” Jeanes said.
Jovonna Jewell and Lucy Reed shared team-high scoring honors for the Lady Warriors with four goals apiece. Monday’s game was Reed’s best offensive performance of the season.
“She’s just real active on attack,” Jeanes said. “She just makes good cuts and has a good sense of how to get open and give herself good opportunities to score. She has a pretty good shot too.”
Jewell eventually got the equalizer which sent the game to OT. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be for the Warwick girls.
Emrhein and Courtney Weaver added two goals each in the losing cause for the Lady Warriors, who were outshot by Hempfield 23-20. Kelsea Hershey finished with nine saves in goal for Warwick. Sarah Cunliffe chipped in with a goal, while Reed, Emrhein, Weaver, Jamie Martin and Carson Armstrong all had helpers.
On Tuesday, the Warwick girls fell to 0-3 in L-L play (1-4 overall) with a 15-5 loss to Penn Manor.
In non-league action last Saturday, the Lady Warriors picked up their first win of the season, defeating host Central Dauphin 11-5.
Leading 4-2 at the half, Warwick outscored the Lady Rams 7-3 in the second to pull away.
Emrhein finished with four goals, while Martin scored three times and handed out five assists to lead the attack. Reed had two goals, and Hannah Weidman and Lauren Stork also connected for the Warwick girls, who outshot CD 17-10.
