CBE Lacrosse: Conestoga Defends District One Title With Powerful Comeback Win Over Patriots

We once again joined the Patriots — this time for their District One championship match against Conestoga on Thursday evening, May 26th, at Radnor High School. The Patriots took a quick lead over the Pioneers early in the match and held a 3-2 lead at the game’s half-time. However, after the half-time break, Conestoga regrouped and hit Central Bucks East with 5 consecutive goals during the 3rd period. That Patriots managed one more goal in the game, but Conestoga grabbed 3 more to successfully defend their District One Title with a final score of 10-4.

Our multimedia HD WebShow follows the Patriots as they experience a broad range of competitive emotions — from the highs of scoring quick goals early in the game… to the intensity of numerous physical encounters throughout the match… and ultimately to the quiet disappointment of having their 20-game winning streak of 2011 come to an end.

As always, images from the WebShow (as well as other season games) have also been posted to our online proofing galleries. So be sure to save your favorite images, and contact the studio for a very special end-of-season keepsake!

Both teams now head into the PIAA state tournament which begins Wednesday, June 1st. The Patriots begin the state tournament with a “rematch” against Ridley, whom they recently defeated in the District One quarter-final. Time and location are scheduled for 7PM at West Chester Henderson High School on June 1st. Based on the way in which the state tournament bracket is structured, C.B. East could conceivably meet with Conestoga again on June 7th if both teams win through to that semi-final match. Stay tuned! Go Patriots!!!

CBE Lacrosse: Patriots Set For Mettle Test with Top-Seeded Conestoga in District One Final

With Tuesday evening’s 11-7 semifinal win over Downingtown West now behind them, the Patriots of Central Bucks East will move deeper into post-season… and they’ll face their toughest “mettle test” this season against Conestoga on Thursday evening in the District One Championship to be held at Radnor High School. Meanwhile, Patriots fans can re-live highlights from the Downingtown West semifinal as we bring you right in close to much of the action with our most recent HD WebShow containing 75 high-impact, tight-in images that tell the story David-Nicholas style. Enjoy… and be inspired!!!

Thursday’s PIAA District One Championship Match between the Patriots (#2-seed) and the Pioneers (#1-seed) should make for a thrilling final District One match-up for 2011. The two teams have historically only competed during post-season tournaments. And if memory serves me correctly, Central Bucks East upset Conestoga early on in the 2006 post-season EPSLA tournament (on Conestoga turf), and the Pioneers avenged that loss with a win over the Patriots during the 2009 post-season (on neutral turf). So both teams have a bit of competitive history to settle this year. We wish the 2011 Patriots and their families all the best in the team’s first quest for a district title. Go Patriots!!!
