Moorestown 8 - Bridgewater 14 (Reg Season)
Details of Game #5: Apr 12, 2017
Bridgewater, NJ's # 2 ranked team played with poise and convincingly beat the # 3 Quakers 14-8. The Panthers are an outstanding team led by a veteran group of seniors.
Moorestown was the victim of it's own mistakes and poor decisions as they lost the battle of top ranked teams on its own home turf. The Quakers fell behind 9-2 and seemingly started to gain momentum as they narrowed the lead early in the second half 11-7, causing the Panthers to call timeout.
Moorestown again turned the ball over three consecutive times without a shot on goal and Bridgewater gain possession and smartly slowed the game down, methodically scoring after long possessions.
Moorestown came up short in a big game that could possibly happen, but only if these two meet in the Tournament of Champions in June. The Quakers amazingly won the draw 12-10 and still lost, indicating their inability to get enough good shots.
