Field Hockey Scores Big Against Baldwin

penn charter field hockey, inter-ac

It was only one win. But it probably felt like three, or even four, to a young, inexperienced team that has often experienced rough moments this fall.

Friday, Penn Charter's field hockey squad hosted Baldwin in an Inter-Ac game and stormed to a 10-0 victory.

Senior Ava Nicolucci and soph Avery Myers paced the jubilant Quakers with four and three goals, respectively. Myers notched hers on just five shots. Goals by freshman Kaylee Dyer and seniors Lily Carpenter and Catherine "Catmac" McInerney completed the scoring.

Shortly into the second half, Nicolucci tallied after accepting a long right-side feed from Dyer. Only two minutes later, off a corner pass from Nicolucci, McInerney sent a rocket past Baldwin's goalie from maybe 20 yards out. Soon, Myers was converting a backhand slap.
Impressive goals ruled the day.

All along, PC's defense, keyed primarily by McInerney, played so well that frosh goalie Zora Johnson needed to make just two saves to record the shutout.

Girls soccer also played Baldwin at home and lost, 3-1. Soph Kait Haughey's goal prevented a shutout.

Boys soccer visited Episcopal and fell by the same score. Soph Ryan Bradby tallied for PC. Also at EA, boys water polo went down to defeat.
