Lynn Stapler led Northeast (3-0) to a pair of wins last week - 2-0 over Roxborough on Wednesday and 7-1 over Olney on Friday. For the week, the senior wing scored four goals, including a hat trick against Olney.
"Lynn played very well," said Northeast coach Kathy Mullelly. "It was almost like a light bulb went off in her head: 'This is how you play hockey.'
"She was thinking before the play happened. She's really come into her own."
Wendy Shugar netted goals in both games, and Tabby Boyer, Rose Perry and Maria Melekos all scored against Olney. Beth Walinskas has allowed just one goal in the Vikings' three wins.
Olney (0-3) had one bright spot in a week that featured two losses: Coach Pam Shuster recruited four more players, and now the Trojans have a full squad.
"It's kind of tough to teach them anything, though, when they've had a stick in their hands for just a day," Shuster said.
Tina Gomez scored Olney's only goal of the week. Brenda Reese led the Olney defense, and all-Public returnee Cindy Loudin paced the offense in the absence of Tasha Bowie. The first-team all-Public forward suffered a bruised toe in the 5-0 loss to Lincoln and missed the 7-1 loss to Northeast.
Washington (2-1) is quietly putting together a strong season, despite the loss of about 20 players from last year's championship squad.
Kerri Kelly, Lori Gosnear and Yvonne Effrig scored in a 3-0 victory over Roxborough Friday.
"The defense has been playing well," said coach Dottie Walton. "We're a young team, but we're starting to put it together. We're playing very well as a team."
Washington takes on Girls High Wednesday in a rematch of last year's league-championship game.
Little Flower (1-4) collected its first win of the season when Carol Anne McHale and Marcella Rack scored two goals apiece in a 4-0 win over Cardinal O'Hara Friday.
"It's nice to get our first win," said coach Pat Morris. "I hope this will give the kids some confidence in themselves."
Halfback Lisa Kurzeka and inner-link Heather O'Donnell have played well.
"We seem to be playing more as a team, supporting each other," Morris said. "The things we practice are starting to come together on the field."
Archbishop Ryan evened its record at 2-2 with a 2-1 loss to Cardinal Dougherty on Friday.
"It was a very close game," said coach Heidi Pohl. "It was the best game I saw us play."
Cardinal Dougherty scored both of its goals off penalty flicks. Senior Kim Reilly scored the Ragdolls' lone goal.
"The whole team played incredible, even though the score shows we lost," Pohl said. "The practice is paying off."
St. Hubert's (0-5-1) has struggled offensively. Katie Curry had St. Hubert's only goal of the week in a 4-1 loss to Bishop McDevitt on Friday.
"The defense has been playing well," said coach Colleen Duffy.
Jamie Cosenza and Jenny Koch paced the defense.
Seniors Jen Corey, Lisa Filipone and Jeannie Sgro have led a stingy St. Basil's defense. St. Basil's (1-2-1) earned a scoreless tie with Mount St. Joseph's Tuesday and lost to Merion Mercy, 2-0, Friday.
"We've been playing very well on defense," said coach Angie Berry. "But we're having our troubles on offense. We can't seem to score."
