Pioneers advance to state final

No surprise here.
Conestoga defeated Springfield (Delco), 9-4, in today’s PIAA boys’ lacrosse state semifinal at Harriton High School. The Pioneers (24-1) will play in Saturday’s 2 p.m. final at HersheyPark Stadium in Hershey. Conestoga will face the winner of tonight’s game between La Salle and Manheim Township.
The win also gave the Pioneers a sweep of this season’s meetings with the Cougars. Conestoga beat Springfield, 12-9, in April. Today's loss ended the Cougars season at 19-6.
Junior attackmen Matt Smith and Jeff Chu stood out in today’s victory.
Smith finished with a game-high three goals and two assists. Chu added two goals and two assists.
