Wins and Milestones on Terrific Tuesday

penn charter, penn charter lacrosse, inter-ac

The year was 2003 and some of Penn Charter's current boys lacrosse players were still in diapers.

The Quakers swept Haverford School in the teams' two Inter-Ac League meetings that season and then the drought began. And continued . . . and continued . . . and . . . You get the idea.

After dropping 29 consecutive games to the Fords (26 in I-A play, three in postseason tournaments), visiting PC carved out an exciting 9-7 victory Tuesday.

And this wasn't some last-ditch-miracle win. PC led after each of the first three quarters – 2-1, 5-4 and 8-6.

Junior Ryan Dickson and soph Nick DiCicco fired home three goals apiece for coach Pat McDonough. Seniors Luke Stansfield (two) and Dylan Schwartz (one) completed the scoring. Soph Gavin Tygh won 13 of 19 face-offs and classmate Carson Marano stood tall for 11 saves. More coverage.

At PC, meanwhile, the baseball team met HS and blasted its way to a 14-6 victory.

Senior reliever Alex Cohen, shown here, earned the win by using his uncommon submarine delivery to limit the Fords to one hit and one run in 3 2/3 innings. The 11 outs came on eight grounders and three whiffs.

Junior Mike Siani went 3-for-4 with a double, sacrifice fly and four RBI. His soph brother, Sammy, and senior Joey Lancellotti halved six RBI while Sammy and senior Dom Toso scored three runs apiece. More photos.

Softball blasted its way to a 20-4 win over visiting Baldwin.

Junior Ava Nicolucci earned the win and frosh Maddie Solow went 3-for-3 with five RBI and three runs scored.

Baldwin was also the opponent, likewise on PC's campus, for the girls lacrosse team. That contest yielded a 5-4 win.

Senior Macaul Mellor, who was feted (above) for recently having reached 100 career goals, scored once in this one. Junior Alexis Joseph registered three tallies while causing the same number of turnovers. Frosh Hayley Hunt made 11 saves.

Boys tennis dropped a 6-1 decision to visiting HS.

The win was logged by the doubles combo of junior Jake Cutler and senior Tyler Schwartz. The scores were 6-1 and 6-4.
