PW came out quickly today scoring in the first ten minutes. However, we were able to keep our composure and continued to work hard for our opportunities. Our pressure paid off when Sarah Veneziale was able to find Kathryn Morrow running a diagonal. Veneziale played the ball, Morrow made one move and was off to the goal. She beat the goalie to the far post side.

Coming out of the halftime we were able to continue to force PW to play the long ball and successfully pulled them offsides six times in the second half. We had another break where the ball found its way to Megan O'Donnell who beat her defender down the left flank, she cut inside and was able to put a shot on goal. As We crashed the goal the ball was fumbled into the goal giving Upper Moreland the win.

We have been training very hard as a team in playing smarter soccer both offensively and defensively. We were able to really maintain composure in high pressure situations today. I am really proud of our girls.

We play At Hatboro on Wednesday.
