Just image if you were that field hockey fan showing up at Collingswood High School and seeing the opponent’s goalie running from one end of the field, taking the pads off and lining up to take a penalty shot for her team. That’s exactly what goalie Kelsi Fanelli did during their Colonial Conference Liberty Division match against the Lady Panthers. Fanelli would score on that goal chance for Audubon, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the relentless pressure the Panthers put on the goalkeeper Kelsi Fanelli. Collingswood scored four times in the first half, once in the second, to cruise to the 5-1 victory keeping their record to a perfect 10-0.
Audubon was looking to rebound from their 3-0 loss to Haddon Heights Friday at home. Before that game, the Wave were on a four game winning streak. At the start of this game, Collingswood tested Audubon very early. Samantha Milnes found the back of the cage off a corner giving the Panthers a one-goal advantage. That goal opened the floodgates after Fanelli came up with some big saves. Lindsey Bozarth, Jen Schelpat and Emily Shaw all scored giving Collingswood a 4-0 lead. Before the half ended, Fanelli’s dual identity as goalkeeper and then scorer gave Audubon their lone goal. Lauren Silliphant added a second half goal for Collingswood.
