Upper Perkiomen Lacrosse Rebounds from Lopsided Loss with Solid Effort

            Upper Perkiomen's lacrosse team responded to a lopsided loss with solid performance three days later. Head coach Susan Flack appreciated the resiliency.

            "This team always comes back," she said. "They never give up. It's a quality I hope these girls take with them beyond lacrosse.

            The Indians rebounded from a 14-goal loss to Owen J. Roberts on April 20 in the Pioneer Athletic Conference by displaying resiliency in in a 10-8 loss to Perkiomen Valley on April 23. Flack said they made a significant improvement.

             "Everyone was much more energized," she said. "We played more as a team and were more patient."

            AiYi Young and Hope Flack each scored three goals for Upper Perkiomen (3-5 PAC, 3-7 overall), which trailed 6-2 at halftime before absorbing its third consecutive loss. Liz Fox and Grace Lehman also scored, while Alyse Thompson registered six saves, including some key ones down the stretch.

            The team, which won 14 of 20 draws and rallied to within two goals, had a chance to cut its deficit to one goal with three minutes remaining, but couldn't convert. According to Flack, the defensive unit of Casey Smoll, Erin Boyle, Tori Shive, Taylor Wismer, Tori Williams and Caitlin Bauer allowed the Indians to control the midfield.

            Three days earlier, they suffered a 15-1 defeat to Owen J. Roberts, which leads the Liberty Division with an undefeated 8-0 conference record.

            Hope Flack scored the only goal for Upper Perkiomen, which trailed 8-1 at halftime. Meanwhile, the visiting Wildcats had five-multiple goal scorers. Maddi Koury and Sophia Murray each posted a hat trick.

            "We did not have a good game," Susan Flack said. "We did not play well for various reasons. Owen J. Roberts is a very tough team."

            Despite the recent struggles, the Indians trail Pope John Paul II – which leads the Frontier Division – by only two games. They hope to make up that distance in the standings during a stretch of schedule that includes a home game against Phoenixville (Wednesday) and road games against Upper Merion (Thursday) and Pottsgrove (April 30).

            "This is a pivotal week for us," Susan Flack said.
