Panthers too much for Rams

Quakertown field hockey dropped Pennridge, 4-0, on Friday. The Panthers led at the half, 2-0, behind goals from Megan Thompson (Becky Gerhart assist) and Gabby Dontonville. In the second half, Elaina Abramson (Emma McLaughlin assist) and Hillary Scott (Thompson and McLaughlin assists) found the back of the cage to double Quakertown’s advantage. The Panthers outshot the Rams, 11-5. “We were able to execute on our corners, scoring two goals on seven corners,” Quakertown head coach Alyssa Maltese said. “We also moved the ball well up the right side and our forwards created some nice open spaces with their cuts to score our other two goals. The defense did a tremendous job keeping the other team from scoring. We executed our gameplan fairly well and will be looking to build on this win and continue with this momentum going into the second half of our season.”
