Upper Perk's Helena Buhrgard races down the field with the ball during Monday's game against Gwynedd Mercy Academy.
The Upper Perkiomen girls soccer team suffered its fifth straight loss Monday afternoon. Head coach Mike Freed says his team is in a funk following a 4-0 non-leage loss to Gwynedd Mercy Academy on Monday.
Rachel Koller scored twice for GMA, an all-girls Catholic college-preparatory high school which competes in the Catholic Academies League. Marey Casey added a goal and an assist for the Monarchs.
"No disrespect to the opposition, but I think this loss was more of a case of this team underachieving," Freed said....
Sophomore receiver Ryan Kendra, rushing with the ball on a kick return, looks to avoid a tackle attempt by the Falcon defense in Friday night's game at Pottsgrove. Kendra led Upper Perk with four catches for 34 yards.
At first glance, one wouldn't think there would be a whole lot to glean from Upper Perkiomen's 47-6 setback at Pottsgrove last Friday night.
The Falcons, one of the perennial powerhouses of the Pioneer Athletic Conference, showed their prowess on offense, defense and special teams as they stormed out to a 27-0 first-quarter lead. Along the way, Pottsgrove piled up 347 rushing yards, a characteristic 0 passing yards, and held Upper Perk to 159 total yards of offense.
