The girls lacrosse teams from Latrobe and Hempfield had both started off the season quite well, and there was a sense that this past Tuesday's game between the two teams would be a big game.
And, it was. With first place on the line in Division 2, Section 1, the winner would be in control of the section lead and have the inside track for a berth in the WPIAL Division 2 girls tournament.
Latrobe, which had won five of its first six games was the better team on this date as the Wildcats secured a 10-5 triumph over the Spartans.
The loss was the first year for the 4-1 Spartans. Their four wins had come against section opponents.
