Exton Elite Undefeated at Harvard Tier 1 Showcase, Jandzio Stellar In Net

By Exton Elite, 09/26/17, 9:45PM EDT


The Exton Elite girls continued their winning ways with a dominant undefeated performance at the Harvard University Crimson Tier 1 Showcase this past weekend in Massachusetts. As always it was a total team effort as the Elite outscored their opponents by a 12-1 margin throughout the Tourney. Exton's Goalie Cara Jandzio was absolutely stellar between the pipes, netting all 3 victories and allowing only 1 goal while posting 2 shutouts along the way. The balanced Elite scoring attack was simply too much for their opponents from Syarcuse, Mid-Fairfield and New England to handle as Jess Ciarrocchi (3G/6A), Katelyn Reid (1G), Lindsey Coffey (2G/1A), Brooke Hubert (1G), Jordan Hower (2G), Bela Noyle (1G) and Jane McCarter (2G/3A) all found the net throughout the weekend for Exton. Susie Roselli, Alana Lamplugh, Nicole Fitzgerald, Liz MacMurray and Julia Franklin also chipped into the scoresheet mix for Exton. The Elite Defense was stifling as the tandem of Nicole Fitzgerald, Joyce Sun, Erin Conti, Alana Lamplugh, Lexi Lombardi and Rachel Craig combined to allow only a single goal for the entire event. Phenomenal all-around job girls!!! 

As if Harvard did not provide enough excitement for the Exton Faithful, the girls traveled on Sunday to face the U19T1 Walpole Express. What appeared to be a mismatch for Walpole on paper did not take into account the tenacity and pack mentality of the Elite as they clawed their way to a hard-fought 2-2 tie to end the weekend unbeaten. Goaltender Cara Jandzio was once again on her game, keeping the Elite in it down to the end while Joyce Sun and Sammy Schultz lit the lamp for the Elite, assisted by Lexi Lombardi and Lindsey Coffey.
