Quakertown Comments

Quakertown had moments where we played a nice brand of hockey. Passing in combinations, changing the field of attack and drawing corners. Unfortunately, we could not sustain the effort for the entire 60 minutes. Upper Dublin's Emma Mead scored in the first half off a rebound. The game stood at 1-0 for most of the first half where Quakertown dominated large portions of the game. Jess Grondsky from Upper Dublin scored on another goalie rebound to make it 2-0. Quakertown's Adriana Alexander led a counter attack down the right side of the field with some nice give-and-go passing with Anna Thompson. Anna entered the circle and cleverly pushed the ball through the UD defense and past the goalie for the score. With about 5 minutes left on the clock, UD scored once again to win 3-1. Quakertown had 8 corners and 4 shots on goal. UD had 8 corners and 12 shots on goal.
