S. Jersey Girls: Delran's draw clinches share of Patriot title

Posted: October 22, 2010

Delran clinched at least a share of the Burlington County League Patriot Division girls' soccer title on Thursday, thanks to a scoreless draw with visiting Bordentown.

Even though the Bears (8-0-1) couldn't put the ball past Bordentown goalie Allison Potts (12 saves), Delran keeper Katie Larson (four saves) was equally effective in shutting down the second-place Scotties (8-1-1).

In another Burlco match, Cinnaminson inched closer to the Liberty Division crown with a 4-0 home win over Northern Burlington.

Becky Forcellini had two goals and Tina Roach dished out three assists for the first-place Pirates (7-1).

Tri-County. Rachel Gross scored twice and Rachel Copare contributed a goal and two assists, as host Schalick slammed Wildwood, 6-0, to keep its title hopes alive.

Schalick (10-1) will play host to first-place Clayton for the Classic Division crown on Monday.

Royal Division champion Williamstown (8-0-2) finished undefeated in divisional play with a 2-0 win over visiting Delsea. Logen Craig and Jen Mellish supplied the scoring, while Ashley Winkelspecht (two saves) notched the shutout.

Clearview keeper Dominique Dorris made five saves and received offensive support from Erica Weismore and Nicole Zammarrelli, lifting the host Pioneers over Cumberland, 2-0.

Olympic. Madison Tiernan scored twice in a four-goal first-half outburst that sent host Eastern past Winslow Township, 4-2.

Emily Davidson and Tina Kushary also scored in support of goalie Jackie Buckley, as the Vikings (8-1-3) held onto first place in the American Division. Erin McGrath had both goals for Winslow Township.

Field Hockey

Brooke Heininger was brilliant in goal, turning aside 14 shots to allow West Deptford to pull away to a 4-1 victory at Audubon in a key Colonial Conference match.

Rachel Krott had two goals while Amanda Hojnowski and Amy Kinkler added one each for the Eagles.

Cross-Country

Holy Spirit followed Emily Casey's lead in cruising to the team crown in the Atlantic County Championships at Hammonton Lake Park.

Casey covered the 5,000-meter course in 17:18.72 seconds - almost a full 13 seconds ahead of runner-up Abigail Shafer of Egg Harbor Township.

Burlington County. Winner Meghan Malloy (19:34) and runner-up Monica Green provided a one-two punch in pacing Cinnaminson to the Freedom Division championship at New Egypt.

The Liberty Division crown went to Moorestown, which was led by Tara Monihan (first, 19:44), Alexis Juliano (second), Emily Juniano (fifth) and Lizzy Gorman (sixth) and Kayla Bodine (eighth).

Salem County. Cora Davenport of Salem finished first in 21:37, but runner-up Lindsey Fraser paced five Woodstown runners among the top nine finishers - giving the Wolverines the team title at Schalick.
