Mark Whited, Inquirer Staff WriterPosted: Sunday, April 6, 2014, 1:09 AM
Eight goals from scoring the 100th of her career, Easterns Sierra Slack wasted no time in reaching the milestone.
Slack netted a game-high eight scores as the Vikings defeated visiting West Windsor-Plainsboro South, 20-10, in a nonleague girls lacrosse game Saturday for their first win of the season.
The senior attack helped Eastern in all facets of its game, finishing with 15 draw controls and five ground balls, forcing a turnover, and adding four assists.
Her leadership on the field is starting to rub off, Eastern coach Katy Lee said.
"Her hard work is really trickling down to our other players," Lee said. "We needed a spark today, and Sierra gave us it."
Eight Vikings had goals in the victory, including Alexis Pettisani and Bree Rolke, who each had three.
Slack has committed to play for Occidental College in Los Angeles.
