Pennsbury 9, Truman 0

The Pennsbury Falcons had a fire in their gut coming off of a big loss on Monday. They found a way to unite, connect, and finish with seven different players finding the back of the cage throughout the game. Celia Dolan started off the scoring at the 28 minute mark, but Truman did a great job holding it at 1-0 until the final minutes of the first half. They did a lot of nice things out on the field and were definitely determined to fight hard. Maddie Spratt, Jaclyn Gorgo, and EB Rafferty scored three quick goals to make it 4-0 going into the half. The Falcons focus at the start of the second half was to move the ball on angles, utilize the back ball, manage the clock, take quick free hits, and force corners. What we were most proud of was the variety of ways the girls scored and the work they did in utilizing the depth of the entire team. As we forge ahead and try to improve, we will continue to capitalize on the opportunity to hone skills and work on finding the most effective formula for success. There is still so much to learn and so much growing to do regarding hockey and mental mindset. Other scorers included Julianna Martin, Liz Jordan and Kayli Williams. Truman continued to play strongly all the way through the game with really nice, big hits and a lot of hustle. Pennsbury will travel to Neshaminy on Friday.
