South Sports News

  • Football –
    • The South Football Team fell to Quakertown Blue yesterday 6-0.  The game was a hard fought battle by both teams and remained scoreless until the 4th quarter.  South moved the ball deep into the red zone on two drives, but were unable to get the ball over the goal line.  Our defensive line and linebackers were successful in stopping the inside runs, while strong defensive end and corner play prevented Quakertown from getting outside for most of the game.  Thank you to everyone who came out to support the team yesterday, and we look forward to seeing you all next Wednesday as we face Penndale for our last home game.

Adriana Paci, Davis Herrmann, Meghan Farr, Ryan McMahon, Lilly Reilly, Gavin Tirjan, and Ava Pultorak played great games for South. South keeper Ben Rhodes earned the shutout making some key saves.  Coach Williams and Coach Lyon are very proud of the total team effort.

    • Varsity – The 8th grade South soccer team fought hard yesterday against Strayer but came up short losing by a score of 2-0.  Kali Hanson and Lavi Baldovina led the way defensively along with Sean Curry, Aidan Kopelow, and Brielle Yencha.  The offense created some opportunities with some dynamic play by JR Roberts, Isaac Montano, and AJ Burke.  The midfielders also contributed, playing the whole game without any subs.  Anthony Ali, Carter Patterson, Nicholas Frank, and Jocelyn Remick worked their tails off!  Keep playing hard team!  Let’s get ‘em next time!

  • Football - The South Football Team defeated Pennridge Central yesterday 14-0.  The South defense opened the game with a quick stop of Central's offense allowing the offense to score on our first possession.  Nic Sherm scored 2 touchdowns on the day and was aided by sustained drives from the offensive line and running backs Dom Morano and Hunter Burdick.  A successful two-point conversion was made with a pass from Xavier Dantzler to Matt Goddess.  Central went on two long drives during the game, but the South Defense came up with a big tackle for a loss on fourth down to stop a long drive deep into our territory and Dom Morano intercepted a pass to end Central's last offensive possession.  The coaching staff is proud of the team for digging deep and coming up big when needed to secure the victory.  South will host Quakertown Blue next Wednesday at home.
    • There will be NO football practice today.

·         Soccer - The South 7th grade soccer team took to the road again on Wednesday to face a good Penndale team. South started the game with the best first half of the season playing a solid team game and led at halftime after Fernando Perez-Columna put the ball home after a shot by Nate Lapp. Penndale came back in the second half putting 3 goals on the board. South didn’t give up and Lapp scored to cut the lead to 3-2. His goal was assisted by Avery Drumbore. Coach Williams and Coach Lyon are very proud of the way the team played despite falling short 3-2. South hits the road again next Wednesday hoping to shake off the loss and takes on bitter rival Quakertown.

  • Field Hockey – South’s field hockey team earned their 1st win against Penndale yesterday with a score of 4-2.  Four amazing goals were scored, 2 by Ashley Augustin, 1 from Bre Polachek, and 1 from Kacie Leight.  We give big thanks to our offense and defense for putting up a big fight against Penndale.  Special shout-outs go to our goalies – Ryann Bennet and Kerry Miller.  Good job girls!  Let’s get another win at our home game on Wednesday, October 11th.  Go South!
