The Unionville High School girls lacrosse program has been one of the most successful in District 1 for decades now.

This year certainly won't be any different.

Unionville returns almost its entire team this spring from last year's squad that went 21-4 overall and captured the Ches-Mont title with a perfect 11-0 league mark.

A total of 10 seniors are back for the Indians, giving them a powerful starting lineup that includes numerous future Division I players.

The Indians are expected to cruise to plenty of lopsided wins this season.

Unfortunately for Kennett, they were on the wrong side of one of those last Thursday afternoon as Unionville rolled to a 21-5 victory over the host Blue Demons in a Ches-Mont League game.

Kennett has played very well so far this season too. The Blue Demons, at 3-3 overall, have already beaten the likes of Penncrest (12-8), Chichester (22-2) and Marple Newtown (14-12).

Unionville, who now stands at a perfect 5-0 overall and 1-0 in the Ches-Mont League, was just too much though. The Indians jumped out to a 15-3 halftime lead on Kennett's new turf fields on Walnut Street.

Lindsey Smith and Liz Carney, who will both play for Penn State following graduation, led Unionville. Smith poured in five goals to go along with four assists. Carney finished with five goals and two assists.

Julie Moran added four goals and three assists. Julie Truluck and Erin Linthicum each finished with two goals as well, and Lisa Riondet had six assists to go along with a goal.

Kennett (0-1 Ches-Mont) was led by Katie Ferree, who scored a team-high two goals in the loss.
