Girls’ lacrosse Top 10: Potomac Falls picks up where it left off 

 
 

After concluding a dominant 2016 campaign with championships in the conference, region and state tournaments, Potomac Falls went into this season focused on going back to the basics — on one side of the field. 

The Panthers are light on experience on defense with new starters across the back line, which is why earlier this season, three-fourths of practice time was spent working on getting stops.

But despite the changes on the defensive unit, Potomac Falls (7-0) is off to a perfect start.

Sophomore goalie Grace Hyde has stepped in net as the replacement for Jennelle Cimbura and recorded 67 saves this spring. Talented freshmen have joined the lineup, while new starters such as junior Grace Deker are carving out roles.

Seniors Tori Birks (27 goals), Kelsey Curl (24) and Molly DeCarli (12) are not only leading a potent offense, but also helping prepare the defensive unit for another extended playoff run.

“We just kind of try to increase their lacrosse IQ — knowing where the ball is, what kind of slides they need to make,” Curl said.

Potomac Falls opened the season with a 10-9 win over rival Stone Bridge and has allowed 10 or fewer goals every game this spring. The offense is led by a senior core that has played together since elementary school and has thrived despite graduating leading scorer Sydney Knego.

The Panthers won Conference 14, 5A North region and Virginia 5A state titles during a 19-1 campaign last season. After an extended break following the 13-8 victory over South County on April 6, they continue their quest for a championship sweep repeat Thursday against T.C. Williams.

 “It definitely added more pressure. We have a standard we have to live up to,” Birks said. “I feel like it's us current seniors right now trying to prove we still have a great program and we still can do it back to back.”

NOCSAE Helmet De-Certification

What's NOCSAE and Why Can't I Use My Cascade R Helmet?

As a result of the recent NOCSAE de-certification of Cascade R helmets, there has been a lot of confusion regarding the current status and a number of questions have arisen as a result...

  • Can the helmets be fixed?  Will the helmets be recalled?
  • My son / daughter (girls goalie) plays winter ball... can they wear their Cascade R?
  • Will this be resolved by this spring or do I need to buy another helmet?
  • With the holidays in mind, should I be purchasing a new helmet now or waiting?

Some quick answers...

Can the helmets be fixed?  Will the helmets be recalled?

Currently, this is TBD (To Be Determined).  Cascade and Warrior (their Regulator helmet was also de-certified) are working with NOCSAE in order to resolve this issue ASAP.

My son / daughter (girls goalie) plays winter ball... can they wear their Cascade R?

No.  Because US Lacrosse requires NOCSAE certification, participants may only wear certified helmets. 

Will this be resolved by this spring or do I need to buy another helmet?

Unknown at this point.  Cascade is hoping that the R can be re-certified via a minor modification and enhanced fitting instructions!!!

With the holidays in mind, should I be purchasing a new helmet now or waiting?

Algonkian's recommendation is to wait until the de-certification issue is resolved.  Older model helmets (CPX-R, Pro 7, CS, etc.) may be called in for re-certification, so the recommendation is to delay your purchase until you have assurance that the helmet can be used in the future.
