Boys Soccer Nets a PAISAA Win, Hockey Almost

penn charter soccer, inter-ac

Despite the date (Nov. 3), the weather was still balmy Friday as Penn Charter's boys soccer team hosted Shipley in the first round of the PAISAA Tournament.

How the game unfolded certainly was different, however.

In many contests this season, the first half has offered no goals . . . and often nothing even close to a goal.

But this time, the Quakers tallied just 90-odd seconds into the game and that counter stood up in a 1-0 victory.

Sophomore Jude Shorr-Parks was the first guy to make it possible. He made an all-out dash toward the back line, a shade outside the right post, and impressively kept the ball from going out of play. He also fired a sharp-angle pass toward the middle and senior Andrew Morris, thank you very much, pounded it past the goalie.

Morris and many other Quakers then ran over to the far-side stands, so they could celebrate with roughly 30 student rooters. Later, that portion of the crowd surpassed 40.

With plenty of help from Morris, senior Connor Sullivan and soph Ryan "Pooch" Holmes, junior Kyle Earley (shown above) earned a shutout. More soccer photos.

Field hockey also met Shipley, on the road, in the first round of the PAISAA Tournament.

The result was a 3-2 loss, in two overtimes. Senior Catherine "Catmac" McInerney, off a corner, scored PC's first goal. Junior Elisabeth "ER" Ross also tallied.
