Mackrides lifts Villa to state final

Caroline Mackrides finished off a pass from Amelia Iacobucci in Tuesday's overtime to lift Villa Maria edged Donegal, 1-0, in the PIAA Class AA field hockey semifinal.

Mackrides, a sophomore forward, scored with just more than 3 minutes left in the extra period. Erika Miller posted the shutout, including a diving save in overtime to keep the game alive.

"I just wanted to support my family," said Mackrides. "Because your team is your family. And I want to do it for all the seniors."

The Hurricanes will play in their second-straight state final on Saturday at noon against the winner of Crestwood and Greenwood.
