DLN Roundup: Avon Grove tops Conestoga behind two goals from Walker

Avon Grove conquered the rainy, raw conditions to pull off a major girls soccer victory Tuesday by blanking Conestoga, 2-0.
The loss was the first of the season for the Pioneers (11-1), who came into the contest ranked first in District 1 and sixth in Region III in the United Soccer Coaches Poll.
“Obviously Conestoga is having an incredible year. We were excited to play them because anytime you can play an opponent that good you can learn a lot about yourselves,” said Avon Grove coach Christian Dunn. “Our girls were excited for the test and they competed at a high level for 80 minutes against a great opponent. It means a lot to the girls to get the “W” because they’ve been working so hard this season, and that hard work paid off tonight.”
The Red Devils started the day sixth in the district. They improved to 11-0-1.
Mary Kate Walker scored both of Avon Grove’s goals — converting a rebound and a penalty kick.
