As the fog begins to loom over the turf on a cloudy Thursday evening, The Knights take to the field at the start of the second overtime looking for a spark to win in their regular season finale.

TOWAMENCIN – In what has been a rather underwhelming season for the Knights, the North Penn women’s soccer team took the turf on Thursday evening for their final game of the regular season. The Knights held their “Senior Knight,” which highlighted all 6 seniors who have helped pave the way for the team for years to come.

The Night was kicked off by a special pre-game ceremony honoring all seniors. (Becca Richardson, Landry Holt, Kloey Carminati, Reagan Ertel, Ali Lindsay, Anahita Eshragi)

“A lot of them have been with the program for 4 years and got to see what the previous classes have gone through, so it means a lot of them to be able to have all their friends and families here watching them. It is just a really good opportunity to honor and appreciate them and reward them for all the work and effort they put into North Penn Soccer,” Rio said.

In the end the Knights (1-6-3) may not have got the result they wanted in not only the season but their final game, as they tied the CB East Patriots (4-4-2) by a score of 0-0. Seniors Becca Richardson, Landy Holt, Kloey Carminati, and Reagan Ertel played very impressive games as the Knights season came to an end.

“I was really happy with the way the girls played tonight. Not much to play for in the standings but they came out and fought hard and controlled play. I thought the seniors and all the girls really stepped up, obviously we could not get the goal and the win. Overall the girls should be really proud of the way they finished the season here tonight,” said head coach Mike Rio.

Even though the Knights may not have gotten the outcome they wanted, the strong play the girls showed throughout the end of their season gives the program a lot of hope for the years to come. 

“As far as looking forward to next year, we have a lot of young girls and a pretty solid junior class. We also have a lot of freshmen and sophomores coming through as well. I think we will have a lot of youth and energy so there is definitely a lot to look forward to for next season.” Rio added.
