High School Soccer:

Cherry Hill East girls easily handled Edgewood 5-1, but the better story was the 27 saves that Denise Prosser and Jennifer Clay made as the Cougars put 32 shots on the Edgewood net, most of them tough ones. At the other end Carolyn Snyder, who played the first half for Cherry Hill, didn't see the ball at all and Emily Brenner who played the second half with most of East's starters out, faced only five shots.
Rachael Sterling opened the scoring for East and Danielle DiBruno followed quickly with another unassisted goal. Sterling put in another and in 10 minutes the game was all but over. Edgewood's Coach Aaron Rose had a very short bench (2 players) at the beginning of the game and, by the end, Edgewood had no subs whatsoever. But they played gamely on and Corey Smith, who was outstanding the entire game, finally managed to put one in late in the game to break the shutout. Raleigh Korfin and Shayna Spivak also scored for Cherry Hill.
As he has done in the second half in several recent games, Coach Dombrovsky pulled some of his seniors and moved the underclassmen to where he'd like to see them. It gives the girls experience in those positions and make the game more competitive.
The Cougars (7-0-1) meet Triton on Tuesday (10/12/99) and are back home again Thursday (10/14/99) against Shawnee.
