Dil­lon lifts Jenk­in­town by Plum­stead

Times Chronicle - - SPORT­SROUNDUP -

to es­tab­lish pos­ses­sion, Dil­lon smashed a shot from dis­tance that beat the Plum­stead keeper and hit the back of the cage.

“It was an amaz­ing shot,” Small said. “Emma has been wait­ing for a shot like that all sea­son. She is a leader on this team and the fact that she was able to put it in the cor­ner like that with a hard-fought shot was awe­some. I couldn’t ask for any­thing more.”

The Lady Drakes con­tin­ued to ap­ply pres­sure after the goal, ac­tively look­ing for a sec­ond. rp un­til about 15 min­utes left, it looked like Jenk­in­town would get the score they were search­ing for and put Plum­stead away for good, but the vis­i­tors had other plans.

Plum­stead won cor­ner after cor­ner after cor­ner within the last 10 min­utes of the match, get­ting shots on goal off many of them. It didn’t mat­ter, how­ever, be­cause Lip­pay and the Jenk­in­town de­fense was on point, bend­ing but never breaking. When the whis­tle blew to sig­nal the end of the game, it was re­lief and joy for the Lady Drakes, and dis­ap­point­ment for Plum­stead.

“Our de­fense stepped up to­day, they marked ev­ery­body and they got the ball out of there when they needed to,” Small said. “We had a few goal line saves, I can’t say more about Claire Lip­pay. She had an­other amaz­ing game. We’ll see what hap­pens with this team go­ing for­ward.”

Jenk­in­town and Plum­stead will be bat­tling it out for the di­vi­sion crown and a spot in dis­tricts. The Lady Drakes may have to win out, but it’s some­thing they are up for.
