LACROSSE - Easton tops Freedom

Easton’s girls lacrosse team has been one of the area’s top teams in recent years and the Rovers continued to prove their dominance over Freedom in last week’s District 11 3A semifinal round against the Patriots.

The Rovers coasted to a 21-8 victory to end Freedom’s season at 14-7.

“Easton is a very strong program with many talented athletes,” said head coach Charis Innarella. “They are well coached. They just won their first EPC championship, but we have earned the right to be playing in the district semi final as a result of a strong season.”

Innarella knew her team had a chance to take battle with the Rovers (16-2), but ultimately Easton continued to be a thorn in the side of Freedom.

“We have the ability to compete with them,” she said. “I’m proud of our accomplishments and expected our kids to play strong and never give up.”

Freedom’s boys also saw an end to their season in the District 11 3A tournament, as they lost to Delaware Valley 14-4 in the quarterfinal round.

The Pates finished their year at 10-9, as both Freedom programs continue to be the bench mark for lacrosse in the city.
