High School Soccer:
Haddonfield Uses Second Half Surge Past Sterling

For one half of the girls' soccer game between Haddonfield and Sterling, the outcome was not clear. Haddonfield hadn't loss a single game so far this season and they were only leading by a single goal to the end of the first half. The Lady Knights had put together a mini-winning streak and were looking for the big upset to extend that streak to three games. This game was the tale of two halves as Lady Bulldogs turned up the pressure scoring four more times. With Haddonfield's 6-1 victory, they would keep their undefeated record in tact.

When Kylie Magitz scored her goal during the first half, it was one step closer to keeping this game from being a blowout against a very good team. After their wins over Lindenwold and Haddon Heights, the Knights were beginning to play well. That was until Haddonfield kept the pressure on keeper Colleen Hee who finished the game with 21 saves. Six different players scored in this game that proved to be too much for Sterling to handle. Emily Pease, Jamie Sobelewski, Becky Smedley, Natalie Dickson, Christine Marcello and Kalie Cosnett all scored for Haddonfield who improved to 11-0-1 on the season.
