Boys Soccer Nets Comeback Win at GA
If at first you don't succeed . . .
No need to finish that idiom because you know the words. So does Penn Charter's boys soccer team, and proved so Tuesday.
The Quakers traveled to archrival Germantown Academy and found themselves in a 1-0 hole a shade into the second half.
But win they did, 2-1, and the goals were posted thanks to second-chance opportunities.
Soph Ryan "Pooch" Holmes scored with 21 minutes left on a short-angle follow from a spot a little beyond the right post. Three minutes later, junior Max Lubowitz connected from roughly 15 yards in front of the left post.
He'll never forget this goal. It was his first as a varsity player.
Junior Kyle Earley had a nice afternoon in the net, but had to depart with 2:45 remaining due to a minor injury above his right ankle. Soph Chase Williams finished up.
Boys water polo also played at GA and lost, 17-7. Senior Sean McLafferty and soph Lance Rainer scored two goals apiece. The latter added four steals and freshman Liam La Barge dished two assists.
Episcopal hosted the Inter-Ac's individual girls tennis championships. Though PC placed as high as first or second in just one grouping, the feat of junior Brinlea La Barge was quite notable. She placed first at No. 1 singles.
Also at Episcopal, field hockey lost by 7-0.
