Grace Renninger has active feet, quick hands and a nose for the ball. And because she does, the Annville-Cleona field hockey team’s pre-season goals are still very much in sight.
This week, on a Little Dutchmen team that’s balanced and versatile, it was Renninger’s turn to step up.
On Wednesday at home, Renninger tallied a pair of markers to power Annville-Cleona to a key 3-1 Lancaster-Lebanon Section Three victory over Solanco. Renninger’s first goal, from a scramble in front of the Mule cage, broke the ice, while her second tally, on a penalty stroke, iced the result.
Earlier in the week, Renninger had contributed an assist in the Little Dutchmen’s 2-0 road triumph at McCaskey.
Annville-Cleona’s 2-1 week had it 6-5 on the season and put it very much in the hunt for a District Three Class A postseason berth.
