Summer Jaros (Bishop Shanahan) also put in two goals for Temple, scoring them back-to-back during a key stretch that broke open a 4-4 tie in the second half. Stephany Parcell (Interboro) and Molly Seefried (Abington) each scored a goal and recorded an assist for the Owls, while Meghan Clothier made four saves to record the win.
