West Genny girls survive classic battle with CBA

Late goals by Geremia, Datellas enough for 10-9 win

— The game ultimately turned on a sequence a few minutes later. Racciatti had a free-position shot to give CBA the lead, but Wildcat goalie Andrea Francisco stopped it, igniting a fast break that ended when Geremia beat Courtney Henderson for the go-ahead goal with 7:59 left.

Just after WG forced the Brothers into a turnover on a player-control foul (the third time it had done so on the night), Kara Datellas found the net with 2:48 left.

It proved to be the game-winner. Just 24 seconds after Datellas scored, Poplawski made a spectacular charge to the net and put in a lunging goal to cut the margin to one, but Meg Hannan's shot to tie it with a minute left got deflected into Francisco's stick, and the Wildcats managed to run out the clock.
