The playoff runs for Philadelphia Lone Star’s NPSL and WPSL teams both came to an end on a rainy Saturday night in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Philadelphia Lone Star Women ended their inaugural season with a 2-1 loss to local rivals Torch FC at Pennridge High School. After a scoreless first half, Lakin Walls put Torch up 1-0 in the 61st minute but Lone Star responded with an equalizer from Drexel midfielder Natalie Pantalone (Williamstown, N.J.), assisted by Emily McNesby (Chalfont, Pa.), in the 75th.
With timing running out on regulation, Allison Scott scored the winner for Torch FC off an assist from Douglassville, Pa. native Kayleigh Kardos.
FC Motown got a goal from Cape May Court House, N.J. native Joseph Fala in the 20th minute and a late penalty from Chris Katoma to beat Lone Star 2-0 in the Keystone Conference final at Drew University in Madison, N.J.
