S. Jersey Girls: Moorestown wins eighth straight in soccer

Posted: October 23, 2013

The Moorestown girls' soccer team's seven-game winning streak nearly came to an end Monday night at Paul VI.

A rally in the last 10 minutes helped Moorestown squeak by, 2-1, in a nonleague game.

Paul VI had taken a 1-0 lead with 15 minutes left in regulation when Jacki Carty redirected a corner kick and scored.

With nine mintues remaining, Maggie Handlan rebounded a corner kick and scored from just outside the box to tie it at 1-1. One minute later, Marie McCool found herself alone on a breakaway and buried the game-winner for the Quakers.

Carty's goal for the Eagles was only the fifth goal that Moorestown has surrendered all season.

In another nonleague game, Hammonton avenged a September loss to Mainland by winning, 2-0, at the Mustangs' home field. Leisha Contes and Kelsey Gazzara each scored for the Blue Devils. Desiree Austin and McKenna Forry combined for a three-save shutout in net.

Olympic. Winslow Township had not scored multiple goals in a game nor won a game this season. The Eagles did both Monday in a 2-1 win over visiting Cherry Hill West. Vashti Williams and Emily Murray scored.

Lenape scored its first goal of the day on its 26th shot in a 1-0 double-overtime win over visiting Washington Township. Marissa Topolski scored the winner with eight minutes left.
