Boys lacrosse beats Emmaus

Wednesday, April 26, 2017 by MIKE HAINES in Sports

The Parkland boys lacrosse team has had a lot of tough tests lately. And the Trojans have passed each with high marks.

After wins over Manheim Township and Northampton last week, Parkland kept its winning streak going with victories over Emmaus and Cumberland Valley last Thursday and Saturday, respectively. The team hasn’t lost since falling to Central Catholic on March 30.

The Trojans (12-1 overall, 8-1 Eastern Pennsylvania Conference) have now won 11 straight games including Monday’s 17-1 victory over Pleasant Valley.

Parkland’s last and only conference loss came nearly three weeks ago when Emmaus used a strong second half to down the Trojans by a single goal. Since then, Parkland has won six of its last seven games, including all five EPC matchups.

While that loss to the Hornets was just a week into April, Parkland head coach Dawn Cipolla’s team learned a lot from that meeting. It set a spark in which Parkland has been able to outscore its league foes 71-33 during that stretch.

Parkland’s boys lacrosse team was on a roll heading into this week. And after Monday’s statement win, the Trojans proved they’re starting to hit their stride in the middle of the season.

The traveled to Lancaster County on Monday and picked up a 15-8 win over Manheim Township, a PIAA semifinalist last season.

“[Monday] we had arguably the biggest win in our program’s history,” said Parkland head coach Brad Schifko. “Manheim is perennially a state power. We got a big W against them.”
