Moorestown 8 - Ridgewood 12 (Reg Season)
Details of Game #10: Apr 23, 2016
Ridgewood came back from an 8-6 deficit, scoring the next six goals to defeat Moorestown 12-8. The Quakers were guilty of 11 first half turnovers, ELEVEN.
Moorestown had to move the Ridgewood game from it's hallowed grass field to the new stadium turf due to inclement weather. The Quakers started out slow as they fell into a two goal deficit but came back to score the next three goals. It was a back and forth, great effort game by both teams as Moorestown headed into half with a 6-5 lead.
The early minutes of the second half saw Moorestown extend the lead to 8-6. Unfortunately, that lead evaporated due to a relentless Ridgewood defense, Quaker turnovers and umtimely yellow cards. Moorestown won draw control 11-9 but had 16 turnovers and only got 14 shots on the Ridgewood goal. This may also have been the first time since 2000 that the Quakers lost a game when winning more draws than the opponent.
Moorestown was held without a goal for the last 19:58 minutes, a first. Missed opportunities.
Genie Santarpio led the Quakers with four goals while Quinn Nicolai had two goals, four
assists and three draw controls.
