Haddon Heights field hockey falls just short in title game

It took regulation time, two overtimes and penalty strokes for No. 1-seeded Collingswood to knock off No. 2 Haddon Heights on Tuesday in the Central Jersey Group 1 championship game.

“At the very end, I had no regrets,” Haddon Heights coach Melissa DelCollo said told the Courier-Post. “They left it all on the field. They played their butts off. It just came down to strokes. To me that’s (not right), because that’s not the game. We lost Jacqui (Rosati), who is phenomenal. In the 7-v-7, you couldn’t ask for anything more.”

Rosati, who scored to force overtime, had to leave the game with a dislocated shoulder, according to the CPSJ report.

Additional coverage:

NJ.com: Rachel Galante and Krista LaMaina each scored for Collingswood (ranked No. 11 in the state by the Star-Ledger). Krista LaMaina’s goal was the 100th of her career. Jordan Paradise and Jacqui Rosati each scored for Haddon Heights.

Philly.com: Up by 2-1 late in the second half, Collingswood seemed as if it was going to win in regulation. But with no time remaining on the clock, Heights had an opportunity to send the game to overtime on a penalty corner. And the Garnets capitalized.

Jacqui Rosati took the corner and fired it toward the net, and the ball found its way in.

“I was really shocked,” Panthers forward Krista LaMaina said. “I told my teammates that we just have to shake this off and keep going.”
