Lacrosse: Race tight for East boys teams in Division 2, Section 1

Written by Joe Koch on .

It's difficult to say which team will emerge as the section champion in Division 2, Section 1. Greensburg Central Catholic is the only team that has an unbeaten record against section foes with a 3-0 mark.

Two teams -- Indiana (2-1) and Latrobe (2-1) -- have one loss apiece. Norwin remains in the chase with a 2-2 record. Penn-Trafford must regroup quickly as it now is 0-2 in the section.

Overall, Greensburg Central is 6-4. Norwin is 5-4, and both Indiana (4-5) and Latrobe (4-2) have four wins apiece.

Determining which teams will go to the postseason could well come down to the final game for a number of these teams.

Lacrosse: Three Westmoreland boys teams contending in Division 2

Written by Joe Koch on .

Greensburg Central Catholic's boys lacrosse team has been a consistent participant in the WPIAL Division 2 playoffs in recent seasons. Thus far, the Centurions are making a bid for a return to the postseason with an overall record of 4-4 and an even more important record of 2-0 against Division 2, Section 1 opponents.

But the Centurions have plenty of company from two other Westmoreland County teams. Norwin has an overall record of 5-3 and a section record of 2-1. Latrobe is 2-2 overall, but the Wildcats also are 2-1.

Waiting to pounce, too, is Penn-Trafford. The Warriors are 2-3 overall and 0-1 against section rivals.

Following Monday's non-section game at Seton-LaSalle, the Centurions have successive section games with Penn-Trafford, Norwin and Greensburg Central. That could determine a lot heading into the postseason.
