TOWAMENCIN — The North Penn offense is finding its way.

Tina Miller scored 10 minutes into the second half and Syd Towns added an insurance goal in the final seconds to lead the Maidens to a 2-0 win over Souderton Area Tuesday in a Suburban One League Continental Conference game.

Winless after 10 games, the Maidens have put together back-to-back victories to improve to 2-5-5.

"I feel like the win (on Monday over Methacton) really pumped us up for this game and now we're just gonna keep it rolling,' Miller said.

Early in the second half, Ally King sent the ball up and Miller was able to break to the net with it and sneak a shot into the right corner, beating Big Red keeper Jackie Parry.

"I just got a great ball and I was able to finish it,' Miller said.

That's been the difference in the past two games for the Maidens (1-4-3 in the conference).

"It was kind of frustrating in the first half of the year where we had opportunities but we just couldn't finish them,' North Penn coach Jim Dehner said. "Now, hopefully, we're beginning to finish the opportunities that are provided for us and we're also creating our own opportunities.'

Souderton (3-6-2 overall and 0-6-2) had a few chances to tie it, including one sequence in which a shot by Kristen Parry rolled just wide of the net.

Maidens keeper Laura Leonard made a half dozen saves to earn the shutout.

"One of the things we've struggled with is getting good quality shots,' Big Red coach Joe Duffy said. "After we gave up the first goal, we had to try and push people forward. We did generate a little bit more but we still have a long way to go.'

With the clock winding down, the Maidens put the game away with a goal by Towns with just five seconds left.

North Penn aims for its third win in a row when it travels to Central Bucks South Thursday afternoon and Big Red hosts Hatboro-Horsham that evening under the lights.
