Four West Morris players have hat tricks

WASHINGTON TWP. (Morris) _  "Go, Pilar, Go!,'' the West Morris players cheered from the sidelines.  The Wolfpack starters got a rare chance to laugh a little bit and cheer for their goalie, Pilar Gonzalez. They were mesmerized at her fruitless endeavor to score a goal as a field player.

Faranetta, Grey score four goals apiece

RANDOLPH _ Katelyn Shaw is a proud Roxbury graduate but the Randolph girls lacrosse players don't hold that against her. It's much easier to accept instruction from a bitter rival as long as it includes good advice and a winning spirit. The play of the Randolph girls lacrosse team has been one of the most unexpected success stories of the spring season. Once again, the Rams displayed their winning tactics and talents in a 22-8 triumph over Park Regional on Tuesday, April 24.

Rigoglioso's five goals drive Golden Panthers

HANOVER TWP. _ The day didn't start off well for Pequannock. On the hottest day of the year thus far, the Golden Panthers' bus went to the wrong school. When they finally arrived, the players had to warm up quickly and found out they were going to play at an alternate Whippany Park field that was lumpier than the new turf fields they've been working out on at home.

Cougars' second-half effort "from our heart"

CHATHAM _ Senior first home Kallan Murray scored four goals and triggered a four-goal second-half run to lift Chatham to a 10-7 victory over Mendham in a regular-season contest between fervent Morris County girls lacrosse rivals.   Jaclyn Leto had a hat trick and Mary Kate O'Neill, Kelsey Perselay and Liz Hyde each added goals for the Cougars (4-2) in the contest held on the turf at Haas Field behind the Chatham Middle School.

Haimson's four goals buoy Montville

TOWACO _ It is not easy for a team with a strong sophomore contingent to keep its efforts from wandering astray. This year's Montville team is showing that it might have just enough of a mix on its squad to keep a successful balance. Sophomore Abby Haimson scored four goals to lift Montville to a 9-6 triumph over Roxbury in a regular-season contest on the Camp Dawson turf field on Thursday, April 5.

Messinger connects for four goals for Minutemen

Sinzer connected with 8.9 seconds left in regulation to lift Mendham to a 13-12 triumph over Mountain Lakes on Tuesday, April 3 in a game on the school’s turf field.

Chatham is experienced, determined

Introductions weren't necessary on the first day the Chatham girls lacrosse team took the field for their inaugural preseason practice. Nearly everyone from last year's squad that had a 20-5 record, reached the Morris County Tournament final and had another terrific run in states before being knocked out by Ridgewood, returned with a more determined mindset to take control in what the Cougars believe is their year.
