The Raiders also received strong goaltending, as KiKi Brasher (North Wales, Pa./Abington) and Ally Weneta (Roanoke, Va./Hidden Valley) combined to make 17 saves. Brasher made eight saves in the first half, including three in the final three minutes of the frame, while Weneta had nine saves in the second half.
McKenna Keller (Wrightsville, Pa./Eastern York) was a steady defensive presence with two caused turnovers and a team-high four groundballs. Jessica DeMarte (Wyomissing, Pa./Wyomissing Area) had two groundballs, two draw controls and an assist on Cardaci’s opening goal. Abby Seasock (Aston, Pa/Sunny Valley) had an assist.
East Stroudsburg (6-1, 5-1) used a 6-0 run over the final 11:34 of the first half to extend a 4-3 lead into a 10-3 halftime advantage. Hana Cicerelle led all players with six points, scoring four goals and contributing two assists. All-American goalkeeper Tatyana Petteway made nine saves.
