Shaylah Marciano came out firing as the Princeton High girls’ lacrosse team hosted perennial powerhouse Hunterdon Central last Thursday.
The junior midfielder tallied two goals and two assists in the first 7:21 of the contest as PHS jumped out to a 4-1 lead.
“We knew they were a really good team coming in, we have lost to this team before,” said Marciano.
“We really wanted to start out strong so we could continue the momentum throughout the game.”
After the Red Devils went on a 5-2 run to knot the game at 6-6, the Tigers reeled off six unanswered goals to build a 12-6 lead at halftime. more
