Bedford sinks Lancer with 32 seconds left

(Continued)

Londonderry’s season ended with a semifinal loss for the third time in four seasons.

“It was a phenomenal season,” said Dane, whose squad lost in the 2010 championship tilt the one year it didn’t lose a semi. “We scored (81) goals in 18 games, so it was a fantastic season. We came into the season with a plan and stuck to that plan.”

With only four graduating seniors, including Lydia Simmons, one of the top players in the country, the Lancers have plenty back for another title run next year.

“You can’t replace Lydia that easily, but we have 15 quality girls coming back next year. We’ll take a day or so and lick our wounds then next week figure out what we’re going to do in the springtime and get back at it next summer.

Dane actually wore a conehead throughout the game.

“It’s Halloween,” he said. “I figured I wasn’t at my house handing out candy so I thought I could be here and add some levity to it.”
