Hatboro-horsham eases past Easton
for our opponent. vou cannot let them turn, cannot let them win the ball out of the air, and you have to pressure fiUsW, sHFRnG RU WKLUG EDOOs. We did that today.”
The Hatters out-shot the aistrict 11 school 16-0. Another objective was to win both halves and they accomplished that with two goals before and after the break. It was senior Tory Adlam who FORsHG WKH fiUsW KDOI wLWK D goal in the 29th minute and opened the second half scoring in the 49th minute with her second goal of the night.
“We joke around about Tory’s signature chop,” Lamplugh said. “She did four of them against one defender tonight. Sometimes Tory needs a buildup, but when she is hungry there is not much that is going to stop her.”
Adlam used the passing of her longtime teammates Mary Kate Bateman and oamsey McMenamin to continually create chances. Her teammates since youth league days found Adlam’s IHHW DnG wLWK D TuLFN fiUsW step, the forward fought off defenders with regularity.
“We have a lot of chemisWUy Rn DnG RII WKH fiHOG,” AGlam said. “They are my best friends. In middle school we had two years where went undefeated. M. K., oamsey and I also play club together too, so wH GHfinLWHOy KDYH D ORW RI RS- portunities to play together.”
McMenamin’s goal in the 20th minute started the scoring and it was Melina Larouche’s nifty angle attempt in the 78th minute that capped off the contest. The Hatters (4-3-2, 3-2-2) know they will need more of these efforts if they want to escape the dangerous Suburban One Continental Conference with enough wins to appear in the aistrict One playoffs.
“We took Easton as any other league game and went hard,” Adlam said. “Our league is weird right now because you cannot take anyone lightly. Even the bottom team can beat the number one team. We have to take it one game at a time.”
