Growney and her attacking counterparts put their versatility on full display Thursday, carving up an overmatched Central Bucks South squad with a clinic of incisive cuts and crisp passes on the way to a 15-6 victory in a District 1 second-round tilt. The North Carolina-bound sophomore registered four goals and three assists alongside five markers from Sondra Dickey as the top-seeded Pioneers (19-1) stretched their winning streak to 19 games and booked a spot in Saturday’s quarterfinals, where they will face No. 9 Springfield (Delco) at West Chester East.

“We have so many threats on the field, and they use each other,’ Conestoga coach Amy Orcutt said. “I think that’s what makes us so deadly — there’s so many girls who can put the ball in the back of the net.’

Five of them did on a sun-soaked afternoon at Teamer Field, including Loyola (MD) commit Liz Scott, who collected three goals and an assist, and senior co-captain Maggie Stetson (Drexel), who scored two goals and assisted on two others. Conestoga, ranked 16th in the country by Nike/Lacrosse Magazine, did most of its damage with precise cutting and passing, a deadly formula for a unit teeming with multi-faceted athletes.

Senior co-captain and Drexel commit Maggie Stetson had three goals while Lehigh commit junior Sondra Dickey and North Carolina commit sophomore Scottie Rose Growney both had two goals and an assist.

The defense was led by Cornell-bound senior co-captain Sarah Nicholson with junior Maggie Hansche, seniors Sammy Stephans and Franklin & Marshall-bound Sarah Brooke. Righthanded goalie Jules Horning (committed to play at Marquette) and lefthanded goalie Laney Stenson (committed to play at Delaware) continued to make key saves, as they have all season, splitting time in the cage.
