Mercersburg’s girls’ varsity soccer team fell 6-0 at the Hun School of Princeton in its Mid-Atlantic Prep League season opener September 18 in Princeton, NJ. 

"The game was fast and technical and the defense did a wonderful job defending together," Blue Storm head coach Kristen Pixler said. "Peyton Gesell ’22 and Nora Smith ’24 played extremely well in the center pressuring the ball and made smart distributions. Paloma Tellez ’22 and Hannah King ’23 did an excellent job slowing the momentum of the attack. The team is in good spirits after a difficult loss."

Caroline Simpson ’22 and Grace Carter ’23 combined for 10 saves in goal. 

The Storm (1-2, 0-1 MAPL) faces host Hedgesville High School Tuesday, September 21, at 4:30 p.m. in Hedgesville, WV.
