Rancocas Valley had a few effective counter attacks, but for the most part, Lenape was in control.

Lenape (13-3) will face the winner of the quarterfinal between Olympic American foes Shawnee and Cherry Hill East in Sunday’s semifinal at Eastern. The girls’ semifinals will be at 4 and 6 p.m. but the time Lenape will play has not been determined.

Sophomore midfielder Kenie Wright scored from close range late in the second half on an assist from classmate Lizzie Kinkler.

With senior midfielder and Rutgers recruit Tori Prager leading the way, Lenape, which is ranked No. 2 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, kept pushing the action.
