Multiple PC Teams Score Tuesday Triumphs
Penn Charter's mostly young and green field hockey team has experienced some struggles this season. Tuesday, however, the gals looked like confident veterans.
Coach Steve Wagner's squad traveled to Baldwin for an Inter-Ac game and carved out a 2-0 victory.
Junior Alexa Lenfest and frosh Kaylee Dyer posted the goals and frosh Zora Johnson made sure none found the cage behind her.
On a busy afternoon, more PC squads also claimed victories.
Girls cross country bagged two, in fact.
At Belmont Plateau, in Fairmount Park, the Quakers defeated SCH Academy, 15-42, and Agnes Irwin, 19-42. Frosh Emma Zwall won the race in 19 minutes, 15 seconds, while third through sixth were earned, in order, by junior Abby Zwall (Emma's sister), sophs Sophia Solomon and Alicia Newman, and junior Mary McDavid.
The water polo teams competed at Friends' Central. The boys won, 19-9, and the girls did so by a score of 13-3.
For the boys, frosh Zack Kaplan mixed six goals with three steals while senior Sean McLafferty and frosh Max Ehlinger halved four assists.
The girls win featured eight scorers and a strong defense headed by junior goalies Abbey Quinn and Zoe Tierno.
Girls soccer blanked host Baldwin, 3-0. Frosh Janae Stewart notched two goals and senior Giovanna "Gi" DeMarco had one. Senior Mack Listman went the distance in goal.
Boys soccer played at home and was edged by SCH Academy, 1-0. The Blue Devils scored an opportunity goal with 3 1/2 minutes remaining in the first of two, five-minute overtime sessions.
In Haverford School's version of the Inter-Ac golf Invitational, held at Gulph Mills, PC placed fourth with a score of 246. Senior Brian Isztwan was the best Quaker with a one-over 36.
