Girls Season comes to a disappointing end - Final Score Perk Valley 14 Wissahickon 6
October 22, 2011
The Lady Trojans competed against Perk Valley at the Eastern Conf Championships to try to secure a spot at States. Sadly the girls were not able to get the win and their season came to an abrupt end. I know that the girls had hopes of moving on but Perk Valley's defense managed to limit the girl's opportunity for shots and were able to generate turnovers. When you give a team 5 or more opportunities per possession by passing too much, turnovers and bad passes are going to occur. This is what I felt lost the game for the girls today. In the words of the great Wayne Gretsky, "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take" We had a lot of "missed" shots.
Scoring: Melissa Rudolph 3G 1A 1 Steal 5KO Drawn, Lisa Kennedy 2G 1A, Jen Xu 1G 2A 1 Steal, Carrie Johnson 1A 3 Steals, Annette Ritchie 1A, Rachel Bohr 1 Steal, Alison Hunter 6 Saves.
So now it is time to bid a fond farewell to our Senior Girls, Alison, Annette, Carrie, Melissa, Rachel and Sammy. Good Luck in everything you do girls. We love you and are proud of all of you. Thank you for "4" great years of polo. 1...2...3...Trojan Pride!
