H.S. soccer: Southern girls seek gold in Hershey


That defense will have to be solid once again against Greensburg Central Catholic, especially if they hope to contain the extremely talented 1-2 punch of Frannie Crouse and Malea Fabean. The two have combined for more than 300 career goals, and Fabean is committed to play at Pittsburgh. But the Tigers are accustomed to limiting talented offenses -- they held Millville and the talented Bower sisters to just two goals in two games, for example -- and have a talented offense to go along with a stingy defense.

Teanna Shutt, Haley Levan, Jensen Kremser and Avory Pantalone are just a few of defensive players that help control the field and limit shots, while Mackenzie Clark (20 goals, 11 assists) and Bailey Bzdak (24, 13) help control the offense.

"They definitely deserve recognition. They do a great job for us and they have all season," Bzdak said of the defense Tuesday. "It's nice to have them on our team."

Abbey Herr has also stepped up tremendously in goal for the Tigers after Jess Watkins was lost for the year late in the season with a head injury. Since taking over, Herr's posted 22 saves while boasting a 10-2 record. She also has five shutouts.
