Westfall - Elated and overjoyed, the Delaware Valley girls lacrosse team ran off the turf at Warrior Stadium on April 24 with smiles after winning their first game of the season. Their victory over Warwick, N.Y. came with a large margin, 15-6. The team is in its first year at the high school. Senior Stephanie Halliday led the way with six goals, followed closely by sophomore Brooke Edwards who contributed five. No more than fifteen seconds into the contest, the Warriors had the first goal. The first half of the game closed strong with the Warriors scoring three times in the final two minutes. A total of ten goals were put on the board during the first half of the game. The pace of the second part of the contest slowed down a little as the Warriors only scored half of their first half output, five of 13 total shots on goal. After the game, senior Brooke Giannini commented that, “I think we played amazingly, we really did; everybody worked together.” Halliday enthusiastically interjected, “This is our turf!” She went on to say that “We did more passing than we usually have and that really helps.” Both girls gave a lot of credit to their coach, Bernadine Salak, who said that, “These girls have worked hard since the beginning of the season ... and today they finally saw the success of it.” Salak continued, “We’ve been competitive in every single game, working hard and improving. Today, a lot of the little things that come with knowing the game - we’ve got it now, and it’s starting to build. It was very exciting, I’m thrilled right now.” The team improved their record to 1-4 and will next play at Warrior Stadium on May 3 at 4:30 p.m.. For more pictures from the game, click “photos” at
