The Falcons arrived at their fourth game of the week carrying with them all of the lessons learned from the previous three. With a couple of girls absent from the line up there was ample opportunity to utilize a variety of players across the board and it helped to have fresh legs for the end of the week and another turf game. North Penn’s crisp passes and strong stops made the Falcon’s have to work hard for everything they got. The Knights scored shortly into the first half and then the scored remained 1-0 for a long time. Haley Derr started in goal for the Falcons and did a great job moving aggressively in the circle, being agile, and a strong leader in the cage. Pennsbury’s defense continues to be extremely strong and reliable with the cohesive unit of Nicole Joniak, Casey Glynn, Sammie Tosh, and Hannah Aker. Reilly Monach notched a defensive save today and Sophia Curtis also contributed in the backfield. They held the Knights for quite awhile. We are so proud of the way the defense is working together and adjusting to each team they face. North Penn made the score 2-0 in the second half, but the Falcons didn’t flinch and continued to play hard, work together, and find ways to problem solve. Goalie Keira Korzeb played an outstanding game in the second half denying a number of shots and helping the Falcons to stay encouraged. Pennsbury had plenty of offensive opportunities, but did not connect until Cindy Budzinski put herself in the perfect place on the right post and tipped a pass right through a small sliver in the corner of the goal with 45 seconds left in the game. It proved to not be enough time to earn the ball back and try to force a corner at the end. Other strong contributors today included Julianna Martin, Jaclyn Gorgo, and Sophia Hitchingham. The story seems to be on repeat for the Falcons - hard fought, close, one goal games, showing an abundance of progress and still much to improve. It is a pure and true depiction of what it means to BUILD from the inside out. Pennsbury is on the road again on Monday to face Council Rock South.
