Stephens takes the win in penalty kicks

Despite a total of 26 shots combined by both William Penn and Stephens on Tuesday night at Battle High School, 90 minutes wasn’t long enough for either team to put the ball in the the net.

But the Stars captured the 1-0 win in overtime when a foul in the box gave the team a penalty kick. Anya Castelli ended the game with the goal.

The Statesmen put the majority of their shots on net, with Stephens goalkeeper Cordelia Dallam recording 13 saves during the match compared to William Penn’s Katja Bierman who only had to make six.

The Stars move to 4-3 and end their five game homestand at 4-1. It’ll be a short turnaround for Stephens, as it will travel to Bethel College to take on Threshers on Thursday.

The game will be the final tune up for first-year coach Bruce Palmbaum and his roster before entering conference play Sept. 25.

The Stars haven’t made the trip to Bethel since 2016 and the two sides have only met twice. The two split their first two encounters. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
