The Quakers recorded 16 wins before falling in the state championship game. Head coach Bill Mulvihill sits down with Patch sports editor Jim Vassallo to talk about the season.
Record: 16-4-2 Graduating Seniors: Allie Smith, Carly Taglienti, Christine Hill, Haleigh Dalmass, Julia Yedman, Steph Toy, Alex DeAngelis, Jenna McAvoy and Rebecca Schultz The team’s unsung hero: This team was full of unsung heroes: Rebecca Schultz, Haleigh Dalmass, Carly Taglienti, Jenna McAvoy, and Alyssa Lukridge to name a few. All these girls had great years and flew under the radar most of the season. How the seniors influenced the team: This senior class will go down as one of the best senior classes I have ever coached. They worked hard the entire season, they kept the team all on the same page, and they genuinely cared for each other. They all accepted their roles on the team and guided this team back to the state final—simply …

The Quakers finish the season with a 16-4-2 record after falling to Northern Highlands 2-0 in the State Group 3 Championship.
UPDATED: Images from Saturday's game added. Following a season that saw the Quakers go 5-9 with seven 1-0 losses, Moorestown (16-4-2) captured its 13thth division title in 14 years, won the South Group 3 sectional championship and advanced to the State Group 3 Championship. But that comeback run came to an end Saturday. The Quakers fell to undefeated Northern Highlands (24-0) 2-0 on Saturday afternoon at The College of New Jersey. The two teams played to a scoreless tie in the first half, with Northern Highlands dominating for 30 of the 40 minutes on the clock, registering six shots to only two for Moorestown. Goalkeeper Rebecca Schultz made multiple saves to keep the game scoreless heading into the break. The frustration was evident in …

Nicole Varela connected on a penalty kick for the game's only goal with less than 13 minutes left in the second half to give Moorestown the 1-0 win.
Quakers girls’ soccer opened the 2011 season with plenty of goals, determination, and hard work. The latter of the three has paid off immensely this season as the Quakers knocked off Matawan 1-0 in the State Group 3 semifinal game at Toms River North on Tuesday evening. The Quakers (16-3-2) and the Huskies (13-8-1) played to a scoreless first half, with Matawan coming close to taking a 1-0 lead with less than 30 seconds left in the half when Krista Conzo sailed a shot over the crossbar and underneath the football goalpost. This was only the second true scoring chance of the half for the Huskies. “We push and push all during the first half, have a couple of chances, and can’t get one," head coach Bill Mulvihill said. "With 10 seconds left …

The Quakers defeated Lower Cape May 3-0 on Thursday afternoon and will play a state semifinal game Tuesday.
It's a cliche, but it's a cliche for a reason: Defense wins championships. A soccer team can be built around one or two goal scorers, but if it doesn't have a strong defense and goalkeeper, then it's tough to make a run deep into the playoffs. The Quakers have the ability to score from anywhere on the field, but it's their defense that has stepped up over the past 11 games, including a 3-0 win over Lower Cape May Thursday afternoon to claim the South, Group 3 title. Over the Quakers’ last 11 games, the team is 9-0-2 and have allowed only four goals. In the playoffs, the Quakers have now posted three shutouts and have allowed only one goal (to Oakcrest). The Quakers have outscored their opponents by a total of 7-1 in the playoffs. In the …

The Quakers will host Lower Cape May Thursday at 1 p.m.
No one in South Jersey expected the Moorestown girls’ soccer team (14-3-2) to make a run deep into the playoffs when the regular season began this year after the team’s disappointing 2010 season, finishing with a 5-8-1 record and seven 1-0 losses. Head coach Bill Mulvihill didn't mind that his team would be flying under the radar in 2011. He would rather have it that way. Fast-forward to November and the Quakers are now playing for the South, Group 3 Championship after defeating Central Regional (13-4) 1-0 in the semifinals Monday. “The desire and the hard work ethic is still there, but this team is a little more tightly knit. They all get along and that’s big,” Mulvihill said. “This team, compared to last year’s team, they are a little …
