April 11 marked the end of the Lampeter-Strasburg boys lacrosse team’s undefeated streak; the Pioneers lost to Mannheim Township 18-6. Township earned an early lead in the first quarter scoring two goals before an L-S time out. Unfortunately, the break gave Township the advantage; they scoring three more goals to open a five-point advantage. L-S eventually regained control of the ball and Alex Knarr scored off an assist from Nate Patterson.
In the second quarter, Township once again started with a goal at the beginning, but Teddy Mazaheri scored again for L-S. Township reopened their five point lead scoring yet again before Patterson, Logan Miller, and Knarr each scored a goal before half to cut the deficit to 7-5.
At half L-S was very much still in the game, only behind by two, but the cards did not seem in their favor.

Goalie Marco Peticca continued playing with strong save after save, but Township’s persistence kept up. Township hammered four goals in before L-S called another time out. By the fourth quarter, Township was up 14-5.
L-S defense put up a strong fight in the fourth quarter; Peticca continued with great saves, but sadly it was not enough. Township wracked up another four goals. The game ended on somewhat of a conciliatory note with Trevor King scoring with less than a minute left, ending Township’s rigid control of the ball. L-S lost to Mannheim Township 18-6, ending their winning streak.
