With their fourth consecutive Burlington County League title already in their possession, the Lady Quakers from Moorestown were at it again taking on another opponent from the South Jersey area. Not taking any team lightly, the Quakers went out on their field ready to take on the Bears from Delran. Too many times it has been witnessed the favor in a game has come away with a loss. The Bears has several players such as Lindsay Davenport, Kelly Caracci and Kate Simmons who have demonstrated their ability of scoring goals. But on this day, Moorestown completely dominated the game from start to finish. The Quakers collectively defeated Delran in a game were fifteen different players scored at least a goal. The Quakers would post their fifth win in a row with their 20-2 victory.
About two weeks ago, the number one and number two girls’ lacrosse teams in the nation squared off at Moorestown. The Quakers battled with Mt. Hebron for two complete halves and loss their first game of the season by a 10-8 margin. From that point on, Moorestown has been working on limiting their mistakes and their opponents have seen their results of their hard work. Xan Weitzel (3 goals), Gulia Giordano (2 goals) and Lauren McAfee (2 goals) led the way for Moorestown in scoring. Martha Lefferts and Erika Page were in goal for the Quakers were just two shots found their way past them. Lindsay Davenport and Kate Simmons accounted for those goals scored by Delran.
