(18) Downingtown West 11, (15) Boyertown 8 – The Bears were unable to sustain a fast start in suffering the season-ending loss in the opening round of the District 1-AAA playoffs Tuesday at Boyertown.
Trailing 4-2 late in the first half, the Whippets used a 4-1 run to go up 6-5 at the break. Downingtown West, which limped into the postseason losers of five of six, would never trail thereafter.
The Bears did manage to close within 10-8 with 3:45 still left in regulation, but the Whippets quelled the uprising with Ava Brady’s goal.
Lauren Tinson finished with a hat trick to pace D-West, which faces another PAC competitor No. 2 seed Owen J. Roberts in the second round Thursday in Bucktown. OJR had a first -round bye.
Hannah Adamski and Delaney Fox led the Boyertown offense with two goals apiece and a combined three assists. The Bears finish at 12-6 overall.
