Posted: October 06, 2012

Ryan Haney earned his 100th career win as a girls' soccer coach Friday when Archbishop Ryan shut out Franklin Towne Charter, 5-0, in a nonleague matchup.

Haney, who played at Ryan during the 1990s, has spent eight years as a coach at his alma mater.

Senior Scarlett Walsh scored the first, second, and fourth goals of the game to help make sure Haney wouldn't be denied the milestone. It was the Ragdolls' fourth consecutive shutout, and they remain undefeated (12-0) this season.

In other nonleague action, junior goaltender Maris Hayes stopped all five shots she faced to lead Garnet Valley to 1-0 win at Avon Grove.

The Jaguars offense helped her when senior Julie McGrath won a 50-50 ball and sent a through ball up the middle to Christin Esposito, who made it the lone goal of the game.

Bicentennial. Two sophomores led Calvary Christian to a 1-0 shutout win at home against MaST Charter.

Gabby Hunter rebounded a missed shot from 18 yards and scored with only eight minutes remaining.

On the defensive end, goaltender, Abby Oestriech earned her fourth shutout in net by stopping eight shots.

Friends Schools. After regulation and two overtimes, a winner still couldn't be decided between George School and Abington Friends, which battled to a 1-1 tie.

For George School, Ali Sacchi scored after a corner kick in the first half. Abington Friends' Jenny Sheppard capitalized on an Alexis Bowman assist in the 25th minute.

Pioneer. Carrie Kupferschmidt scored on a 28-yard direct kick, and Jenna Griggs and Haley Puckett combined on the shutout as host Spring-Ford blanked Owen J. Roberts, 1-0.

Field Hockey

Strath Haven just barely kept its undefeated record intact when Conestoga visited for a Central League matchup, winning by 1-0.

The game remained scoreless late into the second half. With 2 minutes, 26 seconds remaining, Katie Sherry found junior Kristen Baschoff five feet in front of the net with a cross pass. Baschoff, in the right place at the right time, finished off the pass for the winning goal.

Sophomore goaltender Caroline Boyd recorded an 11-save shutout to keep the Panthers (10-0 overall, 7-0 league) unbeaten.

Also in the Central League:

Morgan Druce scored two goals for Haverford High, which coasted to a 5-0 triumph at Penncrest. Natalie Bova, Tess Horan, and Jess McCarthy added goals for the Fords, and Katie Wyman turned away two shots for the shutout. McCarthy also had two assists.

Inter-Ac. Sophomore Avery Shoemaker scored two goals to lead Penn Charter to a 2-0 win at home against Germantown Academy. Both goals were unassisted. Kennedy Kline stopped all four shots she faced to earn the shutout.

Boys' Soccer

Methacton earned a 3-2 win over Perkiomen Valley after a furious second-half rally in Pioneer Athletic Conference action.

The Vikings went up early and held a 2-0 lead into the second half before the Warriors heated up.

Senior Luke Herber got them started with a goal in the 55th minute. Then, senior Tony Rajabi scored on a penalty kick eight minutes later to tie the score, 2-2.

Only five minutes later, senior Joe Germano received a through ball near the net. The goalie came out to challenge, and Germano slid it underneath him and into the net.
