ACADEMY OF THE NEW CHURCH 8, UPPER DUBLIN 1
SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP 7, MOUNT ST. JOSEPH 6 (OT)
The Spartans – who trailed 5-3 at halftime – staged a gutsy second-half comeback, rallying to knot the score 6-6 and send the game to overtime where Emma Yoder scored the game-winner.
“A tremendous game against a very good Mount team,” Spartan’s co-coach Casey Murray said. “Really fun to keep the crosstown rivalry game on the schedule. The Mount is always well coached and disciplined and they really force you to play a complete game.
“In terrible playing conditions with cold and rain, the team kept their energy up and got rewarded with a great win.”
Murray lauded the effort the Spartans’ defense, which did not allow a goal after the first half.
“Our defense led the way today with Tess Talbot stopping a ton of high-quality shots in goal,” Murray said. “To hold the Mount to one goal in the second half is quite a feat.
“Goals from Maddie (McDevitt) and Fiona (Rizzo) set us up for the comeback, and Emma (Yoder) got the game winner in overtime. In overtime, we were fortunate to kill off the penalty and get a great clear from Paige and Shannon Silvius, and that set up the winning possession.”
Springfield Township (3-0) will travel to William Tennent for Monday’s SOL opener.
