Moorestown 11 - Georgetown Visitation 10 (Reg Season)
Details of Game #2: Mar 29, 2019
Welcome to Jersey! Moorestown defeats nationally-ranked Georgetown Visitation Prep (Md.).
The game started and ended with goals from Senior Captain Kayla Frank. She had such a dominant game, GV had not choice but to face guard her in the second half. Our defensive unit, led by Delaney Lawler (C), Julia Dalmass (C) and Logan Lillie (GK), was solid, playing consistently from start to finish.
After a power shot from Avery Jaffe at 17:16, GV would go on a 4 goal run spanning 8 minutes. Moorestown called a time out to re-group and put the pressure on the attack to step it up and do their job. We closed out the first half with a 3 goal streak, initiated with Sophia McHugh and capped off with a great post shot from Kayla Frank. Moorestown had the momentum going into half-time.
The leaderboard in the second half was a game of cat and mouse. Once Moorestown gained the lead, GV would tie than Moorestown would go ahead. This continued until the final seconds of the game. Frank would score the game winning goal with 0:52 seconds left on the clock.
Helping Moorestown edge out GV in the second half was Janey Galski, who slipped the inside and netted two goals and starting defender, Julia Sullivan, took care of business when she was in the attacking end. The leader of our attack, Ashley Nutt (C), had two assists.
This was a great win for Moorestown and the second win of the season. Back to the grind as we prepare for Allentown and Bridgewater-Raritan next week.
