Perkiomen School denies Spartans

Solebury School field hockey hit the road on Wednesday for a match-up against The Perkiomen School. Perkiomen took the lead with a score at the 10-minute mark. “Solebury’s tenacious play was rewarded when Denia Campbell received a pass at midfield, carried it past the defense, shot, gathered the rebound and put it into the back of the net,” head coach Peter Schuyler said. “The score remained tied until early into the second half when Perkiomen scored to take a 2-1 lead. The Spartans continued to apply pressure, but time ran out. Solebury is looking forward to avenging the loss when we play Perkiomen on our home field on Friday, Oct. 23.”
