SOCCER: Knights lose 1-0 at home; Warren teams fall
Eisenhower’s girls soccer team is 1-10-1 after a 1-0 loss to Titusville on Saturday at Eisenhower.
“It’s a developing process,” said Ike girls coach James Brannon. “They came out and had a lot of opportunities – somewhere around 18 or 20 (shots on goal). It was a very good game. The girls are coming along.”
Brannon, whose Knights are at North East on Tuesday, said Jessica Jameson, Sidney Wallin and freshman Tiffany Work were “right in the mix” for scoring chances. Rachel Dinger played well in goal, said Brannon.
On defense, Alisen Hazeltine “has stepped up her defense, now to a starting position,” said Brannon. In addition, Kearsten Maine has taken control of the sweeper position.
The junior varsity team lost 1-0 on Saturday for just its second loss.
Harbor Creek 8, Warren 2
HARBORCREEK – Warren is 3-12 overall after a non-region girls soccer loss at Harbor Creek on Saturday.
Warren trailed 6-1 at the break, but got goals from sophomores Claire Abplanalp and Kathryn Lobdell in defeat.
Harbor Creek is 11-2-1 and in first place in the Class AA Region 5.
General McLane 3, Warren 1
EDINBORO – Warren lost a non-region match, 3-1 at General McLane, on Saturday.
The two potential playoff teams played to a 0-0 tie through the first half. McLane scored three times in the second half before Simon Smith scored Warren’s lone goal on a penalty kick.
Warren outshot McLane, 21-17.
Warren coach Tom Harrington said Warren is “a little bumped and bruised right now,” but the Dragons will take their 4-2-1 second-place Region 4 record into a home match at 6 p.m. Wednesday vs. Corry. A win all but assures Warren of a Class AAA playoff bid.
McLane is 7-8 overall. Warren is 4-8-1 after an 0-7 start.
