Emily Garrity, the daughter of Strath Haven coach Margie Garrity, became the third high school girl in history to score 400 career goals, highlighting the Panthers' 16-14 win over Unionville last night in a semifinal of the PIAA state girls' lacrosse tournament.
Garrity finished with seven goals, and joined Shari Masun (443) of Clarkstown North, N.Y., and Shannon Smith (428) of West Babylon, N.Y., as the only players to reach 400 career goals, according to the National Federation of State High School Associations' record book.
The Panthers (21-4), who also got three goals each by Ana White and Annalise Penikis, built a 13-4 lead with 20 minutes left in regulation.
In the other girls' semifinal, Radnor (24-1) clobbered Manheim Township, 23-2.
Radnor and Strath Haven will meet at noon Saturday at HersheyPark Stadium in the state title game.
La Salle will be part of the inaugural PIAA boys' lacrosse championship game after whipping Manheim Central, 10-3, in a semifinal last night at Governor Mifflin High. Westy Hopkins and Derek Bogorowski contributed two goals apiece.
La Salle will face Conestoga for the state title at 2 p.m. Saturday at HersheyPark Stadium. *
