Boys Soccer Falls; Girls Score Comeback Win

There are several paths a soccer team can take en route to a one-goal victory.

Not by choice, but Penn Charter's girls wound up on a challenging one Monday in an Inter-Ac road game vs. Agnes Irwin.

Down by 1-0? Yes. Down by 2-1. Yes again.

But when the scoreboard read 0:00, coach Darci Spencer's squad owned a 3-2 win.

"We played very well as a team. Great effort today," Spencer noted. "We created many chances and battled back each time we were scored on."

PC's goals, in order, were scored by freshman Kait Haughey, senior Gi DeMarco and freshman Janae Stewart, and those last two were tallied in the final 10-odd minutes. Senior Mack Listman (first half) and soph Riley McDade (second) split the goaltending duties.

Playing without six starters for assorted reasons, boys soccer dropped a 3-0 home decision to Council Rock South.

The goalie was freshman Nick Perricelli, the backup JV netminder.

He was pressed into service because three other guys -- two on varsity, and the JV starter -- were unavailable. Nick showed brass and wound up making a few nifty saves.
