By Rich Fisher

Oct. 11: A pair of soccer goalies from Hamilton Township are having a pretty nice fall.

 While September was a good month for the current Steinert boys’ it was an even better month for Steinert alum John Warwick.  A senior at Widener University, Warwick was named the ECAC Division III South Defensive Player of the Month for his work in goal.

Warwick, who transferred from Cabrini prior to last season, allowed one goal or less in seven of nine matches, including two games in which the only goals he surrendered were on penalty kicks. In his 755:24 minutes in goal during the month, Warwick posted a 0.95 goals against average while producing 24 saves. His month was highlighted by a season-high six saves at then-No. 14 Mary Washington.

In his 11 starts and 912 minutes this season, Warwick is 6-4 with 31 saves and a 1.18 goals against average with two shutouts and one combined shutout.

A few weeks earlier, Hamilton resident and Notre Dame High grad Megan Bromwell was named the Sunshine State Conference’s Defensive Player of the Week after turning in a shutout against Barry University. Bromwell made five saves for her first shutout of the year and fifth in her career.

The junior has started eight games this year and in her 677 minutes she has allowed 11 goals for a 1.46 goals-against average and made 40 saves. This is Bromwell’s second season with Tampa after transferring from Monmouth.
