might not have been lost without Lisa Bernardini yesterday, but certainly was much better off with her in a nonleague girls' lacrosse game.
Bernardini was involved in 11 of the goals for the Cougars in a 13-12 win over Bucks County rival Neshaminy, including the game-winner with 1 minute, 23 seconds left to break a 12-12 tie.
Bernardini finished with seven goals and four assists.
In other nonleague games:
Pottstown played a road game without leaving town. The Trojans built an early lead and won, 13-11, at crosstown rival Hill School and, in the process, recorded their first win over the Blues in three years.
Monique DeGraffenreid helped make things happen with four goals, while Christine Bradley and Devon Yocum added three apiece.
Pottstown led, 7-3, at the half. Hill School spent the balance of the second half cutting into the margin but never did manage to pull even.
Bergan Foley's seven goals powered Gwynedd-Mercy to a 17-8 win at Owen J. Roberts. Christy Losier added five goals and three assists for the Monarchs.
Jess Schubach, Mel Pennington and Laura Riegel each scored twice for host Spring-Ford in its 10-4 win over Coatesville.
Catholic Academies. Marylee Mahony scored to break a 15-15 tie and help host Villa Joseph Marie to a 19-16 win over Sacred Heart. The Jems (4-4 overall, 3-4 league) were led by Julia Adden's seven goals and two assists.
Kerri Haley went 2 for 4 with three RBIs to lead
to a 9-7 Mid-Atlantic Prep School win at
Kelsey Guldin's three-run homer keyed a five-run third inning. Haley's double in the fifth inning produced what turned out to be the winning run. Lisa Perry also hit a bases-empty home run for Hill School.
Nonleague. One of the teams in what was supposed to be the Plymouth Whitemarsh Tournament dropped out, so the host Colonials decided to play two nonleague games instead.
The Colonials got a four-hitter from Alycia Sabol in a 5-1 win over Penn Charter in a morning game, then turned around in the afternoon fell, 7-6, to Kennedy-Kenrick.
The visiting Wolverines pounded out 14 hits in the win and scored the winning run in the seventh on a single.
took its second invitational title in as many weeks, thanks to four first-place finishes at the Allentown School District Invitational.
The Maidens, who won the Dan Seitzer Relays at Exeter last week, took two relays - the 4x100 and the 4x800.
They also took two individual first-place finishes as Cecelia Forshee won the open 1,600 meters in 5 minutes, 14.55 seconds and Chloe Mannings took first in the 100 meters (12.37).
Those performances helped the Maidens amass 107 team points, ahead of second-place Nazareth (60) and third-place Lehighton (59).
Unionville Invitational. Alyssa Long of Downingtown East set a meet-record of 10 feet to highlight the competition.
