TOWAMENCIN » Max Nice came up with a hat trick, goalie Rob Far­ring­ton played an out­stand­ing sec­ond half, and coach Bryan Churchey’s “road war­riors” did it again, win­ning for the sec­ond time in as many days in these Dis­trict 1-3A Play­offs.

“It feels great — first time ever in our his­tory,” Nice said of ad­vanc­ing to the dis­trict quar­ter­fi­nals. “We worked great as a team and we couldn’t have done it with­out our goalie.”

No. 10 Perk Val­ley jumped out to a 3-0 lead and pulled away late to an 8-4 vic­tory over No. 7 North Penn, ad­vanc­ing to a quar­ter­fi­nal matchup against ei­ther Cen­tral Bucks East or Gar­net Val­ley.

“We’re play­ing great team lacrosse right now,” Churchey said. “The boys are hot, they’re hav­ing a lot of fun, and we’re play­ing with a ton of en­ergy. And that’s what you want this time of the year.”

The Vik­ings im­proved to 13-6 on the sea­son, clos­ing this one out with a 3-0 run af­ter the Knights had closed to within 5-4 in the third quar­ter.

North Penn, which got a pair of goals from Danny Payne, saw a tremen­dous sea­son come to a close.

“The bounces didn’t go our way tonight,” Knights coach Rick Smith said. “I feel like they beat us in tran­si­tion and they had more qual­ity shots than we had.”
