Soccer Sportscast – 10/10/19

Mounties, Hornets drop home matches to NEB, Athens

 

by Ed Weaver - October 11, 2019

The North Penn-Liberty Mounties and Wellsboro Hornets boys soccer teams both suffered losses at home on Thursday, October 10.

Northeast Bradford 6, North Penn-Liberty 4

After an early 1st period goal by NEB, North Penn-Liberty went on a scoring rampage late in the period. With 9:39 to go Kevin Alexander tied the game at 1-1. The Mounties weren’t done as they quickly added three more goals before the period expired.

With 7:47 left, Caiden Alexander scored to put Liberty on top, with 6:32 to play Taylor Nelson found the back of the net, then Caiden Alexander scored with 1:04 to go to take a 4-1 lead.

The 2nd period didn’t go the way the 1st period did for the Mounties, however, as NEB held Liberty scoreless and went on a 5-0 run to win 6-4.

The Mounties took 16 shots on goal compared to NEB’s 11, while NEB had a 9-2 advantage in corner kicks.

Jayden Good made 12 saves in goal for the Mounties, who fall to 3-10 (3-7 NTL) on the season.

Athens 2, Wellsboro 1

The Wellsboro Boys Soccer team also suffered a heartbreaking loss on the evening, to rival Athens, 2-1.

The Hornets struck first in the game, in the 22nd minute, as Kaeden Mann was tracking down a ball near the keeper box, and was fouled. Will Poirier took the direct kick and placed it just past the Wildcats’ defensive wall to score.

The Wildcats later tied the game up just before halftime. With 1:59 to play Aaron Lane took advantage of a miscue, tracked down the ball and sent a shot into the back of the net to tie the game. Once the 2nd period started another quick Wildcat goal, this one scored by Jesse Sumner, not even two minutes in, broke the tie to give the Wildcats the win.

Athens had a 12-5 advantage in shots on goal over Wellsboro, and also edged the Hornets 4-2 in corner kicks.

Wellsboro goalie Ethan Ryan recorded 9 saves on the night.

“It was a great match against a top level team,” head coach Todd Fitch said. “The boys played their hearts out and you always hope to see them get the result as a reward for their effort. It didn’t happen on the scoreboard for us tonight but I have a feeling that there will be other opportunities in the weeks to come.”

The Hornets fall to 11-4 (8-2 NTL) following the loss.
