After being within two goals of #18 Stanford (4-2) Sunday in the final 10 minutes, visiting Temple fell short and lost for the first time this season by a score of 14-10. Jaymie Tabor (Downingtown West) led the Owls (4-1) with three goals, her second hat trick in as many games. Stephany Parcell (Interboro) recorded four total points with two goals and two assists.
Stanford took a 4-0 lead in the first 10 minutes before Charlotte Swavola (Cheltenham) got Temple on the board in the 12th minute with a free-position goal. After one more Cardinal goal, Avery Longstaff scored on a pass from Rachel Schwaab to begin a 3-0 run that brought the Owls within one, 5-4 with 2:30 left in the first half. Stanford put one more in the net for a two-goal halftime lead of 6-4.
Kellee Pace (Chichester) scored twice in a 4-2 run to start the second half, with her second goal tying the game for the first time at 7-7. Tabor’s first goal a few minutes later tied the score at 8-8 with 22:39 remaining, but the Owls were never able to take the lead.
In an eight-minute span, Stanford scored four unanswered goals for a 12-8 lead. Tabor scored twice in just over a minute, at 10:13 and 9:00, but the Cardinal added two more goals to keep the Owls from getting any closer.
