Girls Soccer Tops the League

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

First-place fever is catching. One day after Penn Charter's girls tennis team won the Inter-Ac championship with a perfect record at 6-0, girls soccer blanked visiting Episcopal Academy, 2-0, to move into first place with a 6-1 mark. Five league games remain for that squad.

The goals were tallied 2 1/2 minutes apart in the second half. With 9:30 remaining, junior Gi DeMarco sent the ball far downfield toward the left corner. Senior Alex Kuper ran it down and thumped a feed toward the middle. Eighth grader Kait Haughey positioned herself in front of a single defender and guided the ball into the net.

DeMarco used her head, following an impressive leap, to notch goal No. 2. Shown above, she did so directly in the middle off a right-side corner kick from soph Emma Maley.

Junior Mack Listman went the distance in goal, earning nine saves.

Flanked by her assistants, coach Darci Borski told the players in a post-game speech, "Today was exciting. It was inspiring. We had goosebumps."
Later she added, "We deserved that win. We worked hard and did play the better game."

Field hockey also hosted Episcopal and dropped a 3-1 decision. Photos of field hockey and soccer.

Boys soccer played an away game vs. Haverford School and headed home with a 2-0 victory. Goals were scored by junior Matt Kestenbaum and senior Max Jacobs (off an assist from freshman Jude Shorr-Parks). Senior Jay Jennings was in the net.

Girls water polo traveled a longer distance - to Pottstown for a game vs. Hill School. The result was a 15-10 setback. Senior Justine Paolini led PC in goals with three while classmates Emily Zurcher and Brina Way had two apiece. Zurcher added three assists and junior Greer Guyer led the way in steals.
