Mercury Girls Soccer Roundup: Perrotto becomes Phoenixville’s all-time leading scorer

Gabrielle Perrotto’s goal in the 35th minute was a memorable one Friday, as it broke Phoenixville girls soccer’s all-time goal scoring record as part of the Phantoms’ 13-0 victory over Bonner-Prendergast in a non-league matchup at Phoenixville.

“It’s something I definitely knew about, but it wasn’t necessarily my focus,” the Phantoms senior said. “I wanted to win and have the team be successful and if the goals came that would be awesome.”

Perrotto’s goal was the 21st of her season and 72nd in her career, breaking the previous record of 71 held by former Phoenixville and Pitt standout Ashley Habbel.

Perrotto, who also has 19 career assists, has been a scoring threat throughout her four years as a varsity starter, her sustained success enabling her to eclipse the record.

“I’m definitely honored,” she said. “It really couldn’t have been possible without all my teammates setting me up. It’s not something I could have achieved on my own.”

In Friday’s game, Lucy Faunce also recorded two goals, while seven other players each scored for Phoenixville on the day.

Lady Phantom goalkeepers Hannah Sands and Izzy Dise-Carranza did not record a save in the win.

Phoenixville is 8-6-1 overall and 5-3 in the PAC Frontier, in third place behind Pottsgrove (7-0) and Pope John Paul II (5-2).

Bishop Shanahan 1, Pottsgrove 0 >> Visiting Shanahan scored on an Ally Waite free kick for the game’s lone goal as the No. 1 ranked 3A team in District 1 edged PAC Frontier Division leader Pottsgrove. Fiona Burke led the BS defense while goalie Jess Gorr recorded the shutout. Pottsgrove, which is ranked No. 5 in 3A, fell to 11-4.

Peddie School 2, Hill School 1 >> Peddie’s Alissa Codella scored with one second remaining in regulation time to lift Peddie School to a come-from-behind victory over The Hill School in the opening Mid-Atlantic Prep League match for both teams.

After a scoreless first half, Lindsey Coffey opened the scoring for Hill early in the second half, assisted by Sydney Floyd. The visitors held a 1-0 lead until the final 15 minutes, when Jane Andersen-Schmitt leveled the score on a rebound after Hill goalkeeper Marah Krick made a point-blank save on the initial shot. Krick finished the match with 17 saves. Ella Radigan made five saves to pick up the win for the hosts.
