Pennsbury Comments

Emelie Curtis gave the Pennsbury girls' lacrosse team the lead early in the second half of its game against Council Rock South Wednesday afternoon. Then, after a very dramatic pause in the scoring that lasted more than 20 minutes, Curtis put the game away for the Falcons.

Curtis had a three-goal, two-assist afternoon to lead Pennsbury to a 10-6 win over CR South, improving the Falcons to 4-2 and matching the team's win total for all of 2017. Pennsbury's four wins are all against teams it lost to in 2017.

Lily Nolan scored four times for Pennsbury, while Claudia Steinmetz had three goals for the Golden Hawks.

The game was even at 5-5 at halftime and 6-6 after Steinmetz and Nolan traded goals early in the second half. Curtis gave Pennsbury its first lead with 22:50 go play at 7-6, and that's where it would stay.

For five minutes. For 10 minutes. For 15 minutes. For 20 minutes. Neither team would change the score in all of that time, though it wasn't for lack of trying. In fact, Pennsbury took six shots during that run - with five saves by Sophia Kutsaya and one shot off the pipe. Council Rock South threw 12 shots at Pennsbury's Natalie Smith, who turned away all seven that were on goal.

That's when Curtis took over again, with a perfect feed to Nolan on the crease that finally broke the long scoreless stretch and made it 8-6 with 2:38 left. Curtis then scored again and set up Nell Webber for the last one of the day.

Of Pennsbury's final four goals, Curtis scored two and assisted on the other two.

The first half ended 5-5 and was back and forth, as Council Rock South scored the first three, Pennsbury answered with the next three, Council Rock South put up two more and Pennsbury then tied it as Annie Price scored twice 29 seconds apart in the final minute before the break.
