Ava Klopp scored midway through the fourth quarter Wednesday to lift Lake-Lehman over Delaware Valley, 2-1, for its third straight Wyoming Valley Conference Division 1 field hockey victory.

Sarah Keebles assisted the game-winner.

Lake-Lehman’s Callie Dieffenbacher scored the only goal of the first half.
