Goodyear had great day for Marple

Marple Newtown fully expects another good year out of Amanda Goodyear. A week into the 2014 girls soccer season, the senior goalie has delivered.

Goodyear showed her versatility in Saturday afternoon’s nonleague game with Merion Mercy. She made two saves in net in the first half and then played the field in the second, scoring three goals to help Marple Newtown cruise to a 7-0 victory.

Goodyear split time in the cage with Nicole Kulp, who also stopped two shots.

Holly Nicolardi added a goal and dished out two assists while Megan Lynch tallied twice for the Tigers, who erupted for six goals after halftime.
