DeMarco Lifts PC to Win in PAISAA quarters
Giovanna DeMarco, the senior headliner of Penn Charter's girls soccer team, is called "Gi" by friends and teammates.
Tuesday, the spelling of that nickname could have changed to "Geeeee!" As she was truly amazing.
DeMarco has earned national accolades and she showed why Tuesday while leading the Quakers past visiting Baldwin, 3-1, in the quarterfinal round of the PAISAA Tournament.
Thanks to impressive individual moves and perfect shots, Gi scored the first two goals about 90 seconds apart a shade before the halfway point of the first half. Later, she had a marvelous assist on a goal by soph Sara Shipon.
Soph Riley McDade (pictured above) was the goalie for coach Darci Spencer's squad.
The boys, at SCH Academy, also competed in a PAISAA quarterfinal. The result was a 1-0 loss.
In the post-game gathering, coach Bob DiBenedetto's first move was to heap praise upon soph goalie Chase Williams.
Williams is a backup. But he was forced into action for this one after junior Kyle Earley, the starter, broke a finger while stopping a shot in warmups.
