Late Goal Pushes Boys Soccer Past Haverford

The first four goals in this season's Inter-Ac soccer series vs. Haverford School were NOT scored by Penn Charter.

Thankfully, the final two were . . . and they gave the Quakers a thrilling 2-1 victory Wednesday.

PC dropped the teams' first meeting on the road, 3-0, and the Fords claimed a 1-0 lead this time on a goal just two minutes into the second half. Not in the mood to fade away, the Quakers regrouped and notched scores by junior Max Lubowitz and senior Andrew Morris (pictured above) with 36 and 3 1/2 minutes remaining, respectively.

After scoring his goal, Morris raced over to the far sideline, uncorked a serious leap and celebrated with fellow PC students.   

Lubowitz nailed a follow from about 12 yards out. Morris, on a feed from sophomore Jude Shorr-Parks, fired his goal into the smallest possible opening in the lower left corner.

Junior Kyle Earley had a strong afternoon between the posts.

"That game had two great teams," coach Bob DiBenedetto told his players afterward. "One had to win and I'm glad it was us . . . That was a fun game to watch."

Girls water polo hosted Lawrenceville School (NJ) and was outgunned, 14-11.
