Kaylee Rutty knows how to make a good first impression.
Rutty, a Radnor goalie, made her first career start Tuesday and looked like a seasoned veteran in doing so. The junior turned away 10 shots in a 4-0 Central League blanking of Harriton to collect her first shutout.
Katie Quinn scored twice for the Raiders (6-7-0, 4-3-0 Central League), Lexi Kenneally had two assists and Jen Lewis scored once and set up another.
Also in the Central League:
Marple Newtown 3, Lower Merion 0: Lauren Ferguson rang up a hat trick for the Tigers (6-6-0, 3-4-0) and Megan Peterson turned away a half-dozen shots to earn her third shutout of the season as Marple Newtown rang up its fourth win of the past five outings.
Sam Walsh chipped in an assist on Ferguson's first tally.
Haverford 7, Penncrest 0: Tess Horan led the Fords' onslaught with a hat trick and two assists and Sophy Maute found the back of the cage twice to help Haverford (8-3-1, 5-1-1) cruise to its third straight shutout and sixth win of the past seven games.
Brielle McQuiston did all she could for the Lions (5-8-0, 2-5-0) as she robbed 20 shots.
Springfield 0, Upper Darby 0: Hoscia Nicholson came through with a big save on a second-half stroke to keep things even for the Royals (4-7-2, 0-5-2), who got strong defensive play from Kelly and Kerianne McGee.
Ally Scanlon stoned a dozen shots for the Cougars (1-8-1, 1-5-1).
Garnet Valley 6, Ridley 0: Brittany Talley and Shivani Chinnappan both fired home a pair of goals, Dana Davis had two assists and Hailey Valerio denied eight shots for her third straight shutout as the Jaguars (9-2-0, 6-0-0) rolled to their seventh win in eight games.
Caitlyn Johnson and Allie Costa combined to make 20 saves for Ridley.
Conestoga 8, Strath Haven 0: Caroline Boyd did yeoman's work in the Panthers' cage with a whopping 22 saves, but Strath Haven (7-5-0, 4-3-0) couldn't keep pace with the explosive Pioneers.
