10/26/2007 - Sections taken from Times Leader
Nanticoke ended its season at 14-2 with a loss
to Lake Lehman. in the PIAA District 2 Class 2A quarterfinal game.
The loss was a bittersweet ending for the Lady Trojans, who cruised
through the Wyoming Valley Conference Division II to win the championship.
Its difficult to lose, no
matter what point it is in the season, said fourth-year head coach
Jamie Spencer. We appreciate the championship. We won it last
year and this year, so thats a big accomplishment. But we were
hoping to go farther in the playoffs.
GNA wins, in 2A quarters
The Times Leader staff
Leigh Ann Rentko found the winning touch late in
the second half.
With an assist from Katie Nearhouse, Rentko
slotted the winning goal in Nanticoke Areas 1-0 win over Meyers
on Tuesday at Kistler Field. With the win, the two-time Wyoming
Valley Conference Division II champions have earned a berth in the
quarterfinal round of the District 2 Class 2A field hockey tournament.
Nanticoke will play Lake-Lehman at 7
p.m. on Thursday at Edward Edwards Stadium.
They just fought really hard to win
this one, said Nanticoke head coach Jamie Spencer.
With only four shots on goal the entire game,
Nanticoke was stifled most of the game by a stingy Meyers defense.
Throw in three saves by Mohawks goalie Erin Conrad and it had the
makings of a bad day for any offense.
We had the ball on their end most of
the game, said Spencer. We just couldnt sneak one
past that defense.
Thursdays game marks the first time this
season that the Trojans (Division II, 14-2) will face the Black Knights
(Division I, 12-3).
We havent seen them play yet, but
Lehman always has a very strong team, said Spencer. We
just have to keep our heads on straight and play a strong game.
Unbeaten Wyoming Sem pins
first loss on Nanticoke
By Jill Snowdon - Citizens' Voice
Nanticoke Area may have suffered its first loss of
the season, Wednesday afternoon, but the Trojanettes won a lot of
Nanticoke, the top team in Division II of the
Wyoming Valley Conference, gave a solid effort against an undefeated
Wyoming Seminary squad at Klassner Field in a crossover game.
The Blue Knights, however, used an unselfish
offense to keep its unbeaten streak alive with a 5-1 victory. Sem
improves to 9-0, while Nanticoke drops to 7-1.
"I was pretty impressed with Nanticoke,"
Klassner said. "That might be the best Nanticoke team I've seen
in a while. They have really good team play and a lot of speed. They
have strong drives, good tackling and kept their sticks to the ground.
And their goalie (Catherine Cooney) did a great job."
Nanticoke's Kati Nearhouse, Leigh Ann Rentko
and Jennifer Harnischfeger were all over the field trying to create
opportunities with their quickness, but the Blue Knights had enough
speed of their own to keep up.
Sem scored the go-ahead goal 10 minutes into
the contest when Kat Sharkey followed up a rebound off a shot from
Kelsey Kolojejchick. From there the Blue Knights strung together three
more goals for a 4-0 halftime lead.
"Even when they were down they played
tough, like it was 0-0," Sem midfielder Devon Gagliardi said.
"I think they played a really great game." The Trojanettes
managed to get on the scoreboard as Nearhouse knocked a shot into
the open cage.
"I think the nerves were over after halftime
and they stepped it up," Nanticoke coach Jaime Spencer said.
"This was a great learning experience and we had our chance but
Sem seemed to be there every time."
Sem defender Allie Gordon was especially effective
in the backfield for the Blue Knights as she made two defensive saves.
Sem also showed its balance on offense as five
different players contributed to the scorebook. Kolojejchick led the
way with two goals and an assist.
Gagliardi had a goal and an assist. Madeleine
Hackett assisted two goals and Sunny Stirewalt chipped in with a score,
a diving shot that zipped to the center of the goal.
"We graduated five starters so there were
a lot of positions people needed to fill and in the beginning we weren't
really clicking," Gagliardi said. "But that's changed a
lot as the season has gone on. And I have confidence that when I put
the ball where it needs to be, one of my teammates is going to be
there to pick it up."
