HAT­FIELD TWP. >> Pennridge skated to its sec­ond and most com­plete win of the young sea­son Wed­nes­day night, with a re­silient de­fense be­gin­ning to carve its way into the pic­ture.

“The first two or three games, what killed us was our de­fense,” said Rams coach Jeff Mon­tagna. “And tonight, they shut (Cen­tral Bucks West) down. They gave them no room at all to move out there.

“And when you get up on a team like that and play de­fense like that, you’re gonna cre­ate turnovers be­cause they’re press­ing, tak­ing chances.”

De­fense cre­ated op­por­tu­ni­ties. Leave the rest to Michael Walker.

“They’re just fast breaks. It’s in the mo­ment,” a smil­ing Walker said of his pair of goals. “You’re just kinda go­ing with the flow and you put it where the puck be­longs.”

The Rams led 4-0 by the sec­ond pe­riod and pulled away to a 5-1 vic­tory over the ri­val Bucks in a Sub­ur­ban High
