Fine Week for Girls Soccer

William Penn Charter School Quaker private school Philadelphia Inter-Ac girls soccer Darci Borski

Coach Darci Borski's baby son, Jace, is starting off life as quite the good luck charm.

He attended Penn Charter's 3-1 girls soccer win over visiting Friends' Central on Tuesday and again was among the witnesses Friday as the Quakers edged visiting Archbishop Wood, 3-2.

Then, he didn't make even a hint of a fuss while posing for a picture with Mom and the players. Gotta love him!

The Quakers won Friday's game on a beautiful play with a shade over 30 minutes remaining in the second half. Senior Macaul "Mac Daddy" Mellor fired a throw-in within smelling distance of the near post, maybe 10 yards out. Sophomore Ally Paul headed the ball to roughly the middle and eighth grader Kait Haughey foot-thumped it into the goal.

Haughey also posted PC's first half score. In an oddity, roughly a minute apart early in the second half, the teams traded own goals.

Junior Mack Listman went the distance in PC's net, recording six saves.

This game also featured a sister battle. Emma Maley, a soph, played for PC. Maggie, a junior, did so for Wood. Their father, P.J., was the Daily News' Inter-Ac Football Player of the Year in 1985 for his exploits for PC at linebacker. The following spring, he won that paper's competition for The City's Finest award (top senior athlete in the Public/Catholic/I-A leagues).

In field hockey, PC dropped a 1-0 decision to Shipley, and in girls water polo the Quakers lost to EA 16-9.
