League Wins for Girls, Boys Soccer
Shortly into Friday's boys soccer game vs. visiting Malvern Prep, it seemed as if three would be an unlucky number.
With Malvern up, 1-0, roughly 10 minutes into the contest, senior goalie Jay Jennings became the third unavailable Quaker due to a shoulder injury.
Later, three became the lucky number. Senior Conrad Williams scored a second-chance goal just three seconds prior to halftime and classmate Max Jacobs notched a score with three minutes left in the first of the two overtime sessions to, ultimately, provide a 2-1 win.
After freshman Nick Case crossed the ball from right to left, Jacobs used his opposite foot (left) to zip the ball into the net. He was maybe 12 yards out and five yards beyond the left post.
Case, frosh Ryan "Pooch" Holmes and soph goalie Kyle Earley were the three replacements and coach Bob DiBenedetto was effusive in his praise.
"Great job by all of them," he said. "Exactly what we needed. That's the third time Kyle has given us shutout work." More photos.
Girls soccer also played Friday and stormed to a 6-1 win at Notre Dame.
Eighth grader Kait Haughey, already quite the scoring force, earned a hat trick. Junior Gi DeMarco (two) and senior Alex Kuper -- her twin, Adam, is the football team's kicker -- completed the scoring.
Seniors Mireyah "Rey" Davis and Mary Jane McGlinchey shared goalkeeping duties. The defenders were seniors Lexi Hnatkowsky, Macaul "Mac Daddy" Mellor and Brigitte Gutpelet and frosh Kaylee Murphy.
Boys water polo dropped a 17-7 decision at Malvern. Seniors Emmet Foley (three), Evan McFadden and Logan Wolfington (two apiece) combined for PC's counters.
