Moorestown 15 - Rumson 3 (Reg Season)
Details of Game #1: Mar 28, 2018
Moorestown entertained the # 4 ranked Rumson Bulldogs from the Shore Conference and came away with a nice opening day win to start the 2018 season in dominating fashion 15-3.
With the weather not having cooperated this early season, it was hard to guage how good this Moorestown squad was going into todays major test. The Quakers answered the bell and made a statement that they may have something developing in Motown.
Twenty three girls saw action as the home squad built up a 10-1 halftime lead. The offense was led by Kacey Knobloch's four goals and assist with Robin Panzarella providing three and Kayla Frank three with one assist. Panzarella, Frank and Cailin Field were monsters in the midfield as Moorestown won the draw control 13-7.
The defense was on point and aggressive, getting several early turnovers that stymied the Bulldog attack. In fact, the lone allowed goal in the first half was a shot that tipped a defender's stick and got by an unsuspecting Maddie Lucidi.
Moorestown has a big early season matchup with #3 Ridgewood home on Saturday at 12 noon.
