AA Dulles District girls lacrosse semifinals played May 15, 2008
The Panthers survive No. 6 seed Heritage’s upset bid to secure the school’s first ever girls lacrosse Region II tournament bid. First Potomac Falls will face Broad Run in the title game tonight at 6 p.m. at George Mason High School in Falls Church. The Spartans defeated the Panthers 9-6 in the regular season.
Coach Allan Dacanay, the Dulles District Coach of the Year, reports on the victory over the Pride:
It was a very tough game. PF led at half 7-2, but the momentum totally swung over to Heritage in the second half. They were getting to every ground ball first and were attacking hard to goal at every opportunity. I think they were able to tie it up at 9-9. We scored two goals with a few minutes left to make it 11-9, they scored another with less than a minute left to make it 11-10. We were able to gain possession off the draw and hang on to run out the clock.
Scoring for PF:
Katie Baumgardner 4 goals 1 assist (11 ground ball controls)
Maddy Dannenberg 3 goals 2 assists
Katie Dacanay 1 goal 2 assists (10 ground ball controls)
Emma Ukleja 1 goal 1 assist
Alex Wassenberg 0 goals 2 assists
Denise Cordary 1 goal 0 assists
Stefani Werner 1 goal 0 assists
