Nov. 19, 2016 — Bethlehem Moravian Academy (Pa.) 4, Oley (Pa.) Valley 3

POSTGAME Back in a few minutes wirh the 2A final

POSTGAME That being said, Moravian Academy is a worthy winner of this championship, its first since 1984

POSTGAME That’s the kind of team the Lynx are, and with Gladieux at the helm, they’ll be a threat the next three years 

POSTGAME It takes a special team to win any state final, but it takes an even more special team to even think of coming back from a four-goal second-half deficit

FULL TIME At the siren, Moravian wins 4-3 in an absolute thriller!

58:58 Gladieux frees her stick and chops a shot inches wide! Was that the chance?

57:00 OV PC Buzalewski’s shot is defensed and cleared!

54:00 MA PC Defensed by Becca Heffner!

51:22 OV TIMEOUT

48:30 I don’t believe what I’m witnessing here; Oley was all but beaten just 15 minutes ago, but have rallied

48:27 OV PC and GOAL Sophia Gladieux scores on the 1-Up! The Lions cling to a 4-3 lead!

47:00 A diagonal just misses Hannah Beers’ stick and goes in; free-in for Oley

34:30 OV PC Madison Kline’s 1-up is a bit high on the way in, but hits the goalboard; Moravian still leads 4-1

33:30 MA TIMEOUT 

33:00 MA PC and GOAL Clune’s shot is saved and the rebound pops high; Ashley Pearce bats it in over her head, but, as she all by her lonesome with nobody between herself and the goal line, the goal stands; it’s 4-0 Moravian

30:00 The second half is under way 

HALFTIME Oley has had its chances but has not covered on defense; it seems like every time Moravian has exposed the Oley defense, it has resulted in a goal

HALFTIME It’s been The Mayv Clune Show thus far, as the daughter of former Olympian Diane Molinaro has come up trumps 

HALFTIME The siren goes with Moravian Academy leading by three

27:50 MA PC and GOAL Clune with the 1-Up! Moravian leads 3-0
