Gov. Mifflin scored the game’s first eight goals on the way to a 20-10 win over third-seeded Cumberland Valley in a District 3 Class 3A girls lacrosse quarterfinal game Wednesday at Eagle View Middle School in Mechanicsburg that clinched the program’s first PIAA berth.
Eliza Enriquez had six goals and two assists, Mia Beilhart six goals and one assist and Sophia Stanislawczyk five goals and one assist for the sixth-seeded Mustangs (14-6). Riley Troilo made 10 saves.
The Eagles (15-4) were able to get within 9-7 with 23:11 left, but Mifflin scored the next three goals.
The Mustangs will travel to No. 2 Hempfield (17-1), a 12-7 winner over No. 8 South Western Wednesday, for a semifinal game Monday at 7. The trip will be Mifflin’s first to the semifinals since it lost to Wilson in 2017 and just its second overall.
No matter what happens in the semifinals, the Mustangs will have at least two more games: either the championship or third-place game on May 25 and a PIAA opener on May 31.
