Field Hockey to Play for PAC-10 Championship
Written by Brian Kapp, Correspondent

 Upper Perk's Aubrey Wilcox gets the ball past a Perk Valley defender to score during play in Tuesday night's PAC-10 semifinal game.

        The Upper Perkiomen Lady Indian field hockey team advanced to the Pioneer Athletic Conference final with a solid 5-2 victory over Perkiomen Valley on Tuesday night at Upper Perkiomen High School. 

        The Lady Indians will play Spring-Ford in for the conference championship on Thursday night.
        Upper Perk’s Casey Umstead made a steal and scored the first goal of the night with 23:45 remaining in the first half. It was a lead the Lady Indians would never give up as Sabrina Yoder extended it to 2-0 with a goal with 18:43 remaining in the first half. The goal came off of a corner with an assist from Carrie Nyce.
        Just over a minute later, it was Umstead with the assist, and Aubrey Wilcox with the goal, as the Lady Indians padded their lead to 3-0 with 17:36 remaining in the half.
        In the final five minutes of the first half, it was all about defense for the Lady Indians as Perkiomen Valley repeatedly attacked but were unable to score. After the half ended 3-0, the Lady Vikings cut the margin to two as Emily Nagle scored at the 21:05 mark in the second half to make the score 3-1.
        The shortened lead did not last long as Umstead once again scored off a steal with 17:14 remaining to give Upper Perk the 4-1 lead. The Lady Vikings cut the lead to two again, with 2:33 remaining, with a goal by sophomore forward Annie Himsworth. Perk Valley would not get any closer as Nyce scored the final goal for Upper Perk with one minute remaining in the game.
        Lady Indians' head coach Jamie Warren was happy with her team’s performance and said everyone deserved credit for the win. “ I thought it was a very balanced game all the way around. We got the five goals on offense, which was certainly good, but I thought our defense including goalie Katey Lederer all had a great night as well,” she said.
        Warren was also happy her team had reached one of their goals of reaching the conference final. “We’re glad to be back in the final after a two-year absence. We are looking forward to making the most of the opportunity we have,” she said.
