In nonleague action:
Springfield 1, Great Valley 0 >> Bridget Whitaker ran down a loose ball in front of the Great Valley net, eluded the Patriots’ goalkeeper and deposited the lone goal of the match with 40 seconds remaining in the second overtime period.
Molly Ryan went the distance in net for the Cougars (2-3), stopping six shots to secure the shutout.
Goalie Lauren Birchler kept Great Valley even until the waning seconds by turning aside a dozen shots.
Strath Haven 2, Rustin 1 >> Lizzie King opened the scoring in the 10th minute and Nicole Raimo netted the eventual game winner in the 33rd, while goalie Carly Perlman recorded six saves to keep the Panthers (3-0) perfect on the season.
Penncrest 2, Avon Grove 1 >> Olivia Mancarella and Corryn Gamber both found the back of the net to help the Lady Lions (3-0-1) hold on for the victory behind goalkeeper Bryn McLaughlin (two saves). Gamber teamed with Gia Martyn to provide a staunch effort at midfield.
Coatesville 7, Chichester 2 >> The Eagles used a trio of goalies in Haley Coale (three saves), Mackenzie Sendek (two) and Zaira Ford (two) but could not slow down the Red Raiders. Megan Carroll and Mongo Karnley each notched a second-half goal for Chichester (0-4-0).
