Stockton 3, Philadelphia Biblical 1

Jackie Turner

Richard Stockton (2-7) defeated Philadelphia Biblical (2-10) 3-1 for its second win in the last three games.  For the Ospreys, goals by Gabrielle Palermo (Ocean Twp./ Ocean Twp.), Jackie Turner (Medford/Shawnee) and Katie Mattsson (Brick/Brick Twp.) in the first 12 minutes were all Stockton needed to defeat the Crimson Eagles.  In goal, Debi O’Kane (Cologne/Absegami) played the entire game for Stockton and made six saves. 

Palermo opened up the scoring for Stockton 6:13 after the opening whistle.  Turner netted a goal at 9:55 for a 2-0 advantage and Mattsson scored just 1:25 later to increase the Stockton lead to 3-0 after only 11:20 of game action.  All of the goals for the Ospreys were unassisted.  Philadelphia Biblical broke the shutout with a goal 45 seconds into the second half, but Stockton protected the lead and closed out the 3-1 victory.
