Pennsbury vs. Council Rock North

Pennsbury Comments
The Falcons story is being written from scratch with each passing day and it is going to be a page turner. Coming off of a 6-0 non-league loss against Souderton on Friday, Pennsbury proved that there will be a new chapter and they are only getting started. Hosting Council Rock North, the first league game, at home was a great way to set the tone for what's ahead and the Falcons knew it would be indicative of where they stand in the mix. CR North came out and scored 2 quick goals, but Pennsbury kept making adjustments and never let down. The spark of scoring began when Senior, Casey Glynn, connected on a strong corner shot. Falcons were down 3-1 toward the end of the first half and then Junior, Kayli Williams, scored with 18 seconds left to make it 3-2 going into the half. And they were not done yet… Junior, Maddy Spratt, scored in the second half to tie the game 3-3 and that's where it stayed until there were only 6 minutes left to play. CR North scored the 4th goal that ended up being the game winner. The Falcons had the ball at their end with 35 seconds left, but time ran out before they could create an opportunity. Everyone contributed from the goalie all the way up to the forward line. Defender, Hannah Aker, was extremely strong in the back along with Casey Glynn, Nicole Joniak, and Sammie Tosh. Goalie, Keira Korzeb, worked hard to guide the defense and keep the ball out of the cage. Contributions were made at across all grade levels - Sophomores, Liz Jordan and EB Rafferty, made a lot happen in the midfield in addition to Junior, Sophia Hitchingham and Freshman, Jaclyn Gorgo, kept plays alive with her aggressive style and field hockey IQ. This team has heart, grit, and determination and are only getting better. We are extremely proud of what happened out there today. They played with joy and that is what makes the story a great one.
