Pennsbury Comments

The intensity level will ratchet way up next week for the Pennsbury field hockey team, who has dates with Abington - the only team this year to score more than one goal against the Falcons - and Neshaminy - the second-place team in the Suburban One National Conference who sits just a game behind.

Pennsbury had its final tuneup for the start of the stretch drive that begins at Abington Monday as the Falcons defeated Hatboro-Horsham 8-0 Thursday afternoon. Nell Webber and Samie Hackman had two goals each, and Anna Sharp, Maya Geller and Kate Chesney each had a goal and assist.

The win improved Pennsbury to 9-2 overall, while Hatboro-Horsham slipped to 1-10. Pennsbury is 7-0 in the SOL National.

"This was a good week for us," said Pennsbury coach Jamie Parell, whose team outscored Truman, Bensalem and Hatboro-Horsham by a combined 17-0 in a four-day span. "Everybody got to play a lot. We had a lot of different girls who scored goals. Now we have a huge week ahead of us, and then another huge week after that. We need to stay focused, and we need to bring intensity."

First up is Abington, whom Pennsbury defeated 6-3 the first time around. Then it'll be Neshaminy at Pennsbury Thursday; Neshaminy's only league loss was 3-1 to Pennsbury.

Those games are for next week. For the game at Hatboro-Horsham, Hackman started the scoring six minutes into the game, and it was 3-0 after 13 minutes after Webber drove in her first of the day and then Maddie Hackman rocketed one of her own off of Sharp's cross.

Annie Price then dribbled down the right side and then passed into the circle to Chesney, who crossed it to Hackman for her second of the day. Price then fed Webber for her second as well, and it was 5-0.

The lead grew to 7-0 at the break off of goals from Geller and Chesney, that one assisted by Geller. Sharp scored the only goal of the second half.

H-H goalie Liz Wilburn made 18 saves.
