Recyclables are champions of women's summer lacrosse league

On another hot and steamy Thursday night in Bel Air, the Bel Air Women's Summer Lacrosse League wrapped up another season at Rockfield Park's Ewing Street Field.

In the championship game, Recyclables showed that its regular season domination was no joke as the green clad club rolled over the Dark Knights, 11-3. The winners led 8-2 at the half and held the Knights scoreless in two of the four quarters. Thursday's title and consolation games were played in quarters again, because of the extreme heat. None of the four teams had substitutes.


In the title game, both teams played with 10 players. That didn't seem to hamper the Recyclables a bit.

Sara Chesla had a solid game in leading the champions, scoring three goals and assisting on four others. Rachel Slusher and Susie Snee also scored three goals each in the win. Gina Maranto added a goal and assist and Abbey Sasdelli also scored once. Alexis Susa was also credited with one assist.


The Dark Knights got scoring from three different players - Aloise Diedrich, Meghan Najewicz and Montaiju Galmore. Brooke Prater, the league's regular season scoring leader, was limited to one assist.
