Boys Soccer Win Caps Busy Weekend
As the first 40 minutes wound down, Bob DiBenedetto, Penn Charter's boys soccer coach, muttered to no one in particular, "That's the worst half of soccer I've ever seen."
After the game, he noted to his Quakers that they had not played well overall.
"But that's what good teams do — win the game even when they don't play their best," he added. "And that's why I'm proud of you guys."
In the Saturday game, with an 11 a.m. start time, PC bested visiting Father Judge, 2-1.
Soph Ryan "Pooch" Holmes gave PC a 1-0 lead off an assist from classmate Ryan Bradby 10 minutes beyond halftime. Senior Andrew Morris made it 2-0 about 15 minutes later on an impressive spin-and-fire shot from 30-plus yards.
Junior Kyle Earley was strong in goal, posting several noteworthy saves. More photos.
Girls cross country traveled to George School for an invitational event and placed fourth among 26 teams. Frosh Emma Zwall finished third. The Quakers were just one point out of third and their performance was the best by a non-parochial independent school.
Girls water polo was topped by host Lawrenceville School (NJ), 11-7, in overtime.
Soph Hayley Hunt (five goals) provided major excitement by creating a 7-7 tie with 19 seconds remaining in regulation. PC’s other scores went to classmates Sally Foley and Sam Boyes. Junior Zoe Tierno made 11 saves while seniors Greer Guyer and Niamh Stull bagged three and two steals, respectively.
