Moorestown won a decisive victory Thursday by dominating the Lady Chiefs of Cherokee on both offense and defense to remain undefeated. On offense, Kate Slotman scored 4, while Jenna Walsh, Sara Shelley, and Kateri Linville each scored 3 goals apiece for the Lady Quakers. On defense, the Lady Chiefs were held to just 6 goals, three in each half.

Jenna Walsh opened up the scoring by bouncing one in (22:50). Next she picked up a turnover at the Moorestown end of the field and then ran it back by herself for her second score (19:28). Cherokee then got on the board with a score from Melissa Ambricco (18:34). Moorestown responded with five unanswered goals (Shelley, Linville, Courtney Legath, and two from Slotman) to go up 7-1 at the 10:31 mark. Cherokee got their second when Andrea Pluese scored off of a free position (8:05). Slotman replied 14 seconds later with her 3rd of the game. Shelley's 2nd made it 9-2 (2:35). Cherokee scored their 3rd when Erin O'Hagan put one in off of a free position. Then Walsh closed out the half with her 3rd of the game (0:22) to put the Lady Quakers up 10-3.

The Moorestown onslaught continued in the second half. Shelley picked up a turnover and ran it back end to end before passing it to Slotman for the score (24:01). Linville added her 2nd of the game (21:21), then Shelley scored her 3rd off of a free position pass from Slotman (19:06). Cherokee finally scored in the second half when Pluese put one in for her 2nd of the game (17:33) to put the score at 13-4. Kim Hooven then scored for the Lady Quakers with an assist from Slotman (15:50). Cherokee would score the next two, first by Tracy Rogalcheck (13:36), then by Sarah Cohen (10:06) to make the tally 14-6. But Moorestown would score the last three (Kate Merriken, Linville, Lisa Reindl) to come away with the 17-6 victory. Moorestown's record is now 9-0, whereas Cherokee falls to 9-3.

Moorestown's toughest test of the season will come this Saturday when they travel north to play Summit at 4:00 PM.
