Details of Game #24: Jun 06, 2018
Moorestown dominated Haddonfield 13-3 on its way to the TOC Final versus Ridgewood. The is a rematch from an early season win against the Maroons. The Quakers led today's game at half 8-0 behind a stifling defense.
The Quakers came into today's game versus Haddonfield wanting to prove that their early season close game was an aberration. Moorestown's ultimate goal is the TOC Title but being the best in South Jersey was clearly the goal tonight. Even though the Dawgs won draw control 10-6, Moorestown dominated the midfield with lethal checks and double teams. Kayla Frank led the charge with another relentless effort filling up the stat sheet with five checks and three ground balls.
Moorestown was patient but aggressive on the attack getting contributions from everyone. Colette Smith had her best day as she collected three goals and four assists, all inspite of being face guarded earlier in the game. Ava Frantz also had three goals and would not be denied attacking the goal. Cailin Field, Robin Panzarella and Frank each had two goals, while Kacey Knobloch added one as well. Ashley Nutt had two assists and was also relentless on the midfield ride. The Quakers have any number of girls that can score and it has made it hard for the opposition to key in one or two players.
Defense wins championships and while the Quakers are always a solid defensive team, the playoffs have shown Moorestown D to be as good as ever, leading the state in fewest goals allowed while also getting solid goal tending. Logan Lillie was again a wall with 8 saves.
Delaney Lawler continues to lead the defense which also got great effort by Julia Dalmass, Rylee Brown, Emily Brooks, Emily Bretschneider and a multiple number of middies who find themselves back on defense. Harrassment and chaos has been the theme as has great individual effort.
Congratulations goes out to the Haddonfield players and coaches for a great season and for helping keep South Jersey strong. The Dawgs only two losses were to Moorestown and they should be even better next year.
On to the Final game, the TOC Championship. Number 1 versus number 2. North versus South. The last two teams left standing from over 220 in NJ.
