With a convincing victory Monday, Upper Perkiomen's lacrosse team moved within one game of a division title. Regan McComb expected this level of accomplishment, based on the team's pre-season preparations.
"We put in lot of work getting ready," she said. "We expected to do well."

Perkiomen's Andrew Tjahadi chips onto the green of the second hole at Butter Valley during Monday's match against AIM Academy. Tjahadi posted a team-best 39 for the Panthers.
Following a pause at the top of his back swing, Andrew Tjahadi completed his opening tee shot Monday with an aggressive hip turn. Rather than swing his driver in a circular manner, Tjahadi's club face moves in a straight line down through the ball.
"Andrew swings with anger," said Peter Dougherty, Perkiomen School's head golf coach.
Tjahadi made the adjustment, to incorporate his hip drive and create a good striking angle, with the help of a previous swing coach in his native country of Indonesia.
"Whenever I swing the club in a round shape, I always hook the ball," he said.
On Monday, Tjahadi posted a team-best 39 for the Panthers, who defeated AIM Academy in the Tri-County Independent School League.
Matt Pulcini finished with a 41 and Minuette Laessig added a 43 for Perkiomen School, which won the nine-hole match 123-144 at the Butter Valley Golf Port....
