Wissahickon 8, Hatboro-Horsham 0 >> Riley Ball recorded a hat trick while Brynne Miller had a goal and three assists as Wissahickon rolled to an SOL Liberty Division win Thursday.

Kendall Crowley collected two goals for the Trojans (2-0-0, 1-0-0), who scored three times in both the second and third quarters.

Audrey Walsh and Caroline Kirkpatrick each added a goal for Wiss while Julia Schools, Kayla Pak, Kate Lovensheimer, Ella Hummel and Avery Mullin all registered an assist.

Crowley tallied the game’s first two goals – both assists by Miller –  with Ball posting her first goal at 3:58 in the second quarter. Kirkpatrick found the back of the cage with four seconds before halftime to make it 4-0.

Ball scored the third’s first two goals with Audrey Walsh scoring for a 7-0 at 6:08 in the quarter. Miller added the final goal at 5:03 in the fourth.

Lower Moreland 3, Upper Moreland 0 >> Liz Neeld had two goals, scoring in the first and third quarters as the visiting Lions shut out Upper for an SOL Freedom Division win.

Meredith Lutter registered a goal and an assist, goalkeeper Sarah Rosala had eight saves while Kathleen Chen made five defensive saves for Lower Moreland (2-0-0, 1-0-0).

Goalie Emma Hurley had 15 saves for the Golden Bears (0-2-0, 0-1-0).

Neeld scored the game’s opening goal at 5:12 in the first quarter off a Lutter assist. Neeld struck for her second at 9:58 in the third quarter while Lutter scored off Jess Pachman’s assist for a 3-0 lead at 7:45 in the third.

“Emma Hurley had a fantastic game in goal,” Upper Moreland coach Marissa Elizardo said. “She came up with some big saves that kept us in the game and got the rest of the team fired up.  We played a good first half. We came out slow in the 3rd quarter and gave up 2 quick goals. As a team, we need to work on putting together a full 60 minutes of hockey.

“Jenna Piantieri provided us with a spark on the attack after making the move from defense to mid.  We had some exciting moments on attack at the end of the game and we are hoping to take that momentum into tomorrow’s game.”
