PC Girls Advance in PAISAA Soccer

You help me and I'll help you. Senior Dominique DeMarco and ninth grader Emma Maley can relate. In Wednesday's first round of the Pennsylvania Independent Schools Athletic Association's girls soccer tournament, those two players swapped score/assist roles as Penn Charter tripped Hill School, 2-0, on the Stadium turf field.

With 14 minutes left in the first half, Maley ran down the ball to the left of the goal, almost at the end line, and directed a 45-degree pass to the middle. DeMarco, left unattended, easily pumped the ball home. Goal No. 2 was scored midway through the second half. DeMarco lifted a right-side free kick goalward from roughly 50 yards. The ball made contact with two players, then bounced over to Maley, who was stationed about eight yards away from the end line, basically even with the right post. Bang. Bingo. Soph Mackenzie Listman was perfect in goal. The Quakers will visit Friends' Central for a quarterfinal early next week. Details TBA.
