Neshannock came up a bit short yesterday.

The Lady Lancers dropped all three singles matches in a 3-2 WPIAL Section 2-AA match at Pearson Park in the Coaches vs. Cancer Pink-Out event.

“It was just a tough match,” Lady Lancers coach Chuck Dess said. “I thought we competed really hard; they’re a veteran team.

“The score doesn’t indicate how well we played. I thought the girls competed really hard. We still have an outside shot at the playoffs and we’re going to put this one behind us.”

The doubles tandems of Maria Acosta/Cecelia Weingart (No. 1) and Arti Anna Ribarevski/Erin Warvell (No. 2) posted victories for Neshannock (6-4, 7-4).

Blackhawk won the first meeting, 3-2, also sweeping all three singles matches.

Following are the results:

1. Juliana Lapek (B) def. Gabby Giangiuli 6-0, 6-0.
