Two York County girls' lacrosse teams won their District 3 Class 2A tournament openers in record fashion Monday, posting the two highest single-game goal totals in the district's girls' playoff history.
Kennard-Dale set the record with 29 goals in its 29-2 home victory against Harrisburg Christian. The second-seeded Rams led 20-1 at the half. Emmie Dressel led the way for the Rams with three goals and 13 assists.
Top-seeded Susquehannock, meanwhile, would have had the record to itself if not for the Rams. The Warriors picked up a 28-4 win at home against West York, the second highest single playoff game total in District 3 girls' lacrosse history. The Warriors received five goals apiece from Gena Speights, Harley Mummert and Rachel Marshner.
The Rams and Warriors weren't the only YAIAA teams to win big in the first round. Third-seeded York Catholic defeated Berks Catholic at home, 19-6. Anna Linthicum led the way with three goals and four assists.
And in Class 3A, No. 8 South Western also advanced to the District 3 quarterfinals. The Mustangs exacted a little bit of revenge on New Oxford, defeating the Colonials 14-8 behind four goals apiece from Jordan Gertz and Hannah Huff. South Western advances to a quarterfinal at top-seeded Wilson on Wednesday.
In the Class 2A quarterfinals on Wednesday, Susquehannock will host Cocalico, Kennard-Dale will host Trinity and York Catholic will host Wyomissing.
They were the only four girls' teams to advance past the first round.
In Class 2A, Eastern York's season ended with a 16-4 setback to visiting Cocalico.
In 3A, Dallastown and Red Lion each saw their seasons come to a close. The Wildcats fell to Governor Mifflin, 13-6, and the Lions fell to Hempfield, 17-12.
