Kinzua U10 Darling went undefeated at the season-ending PaWest Open Tournament at Edinboro University this weekend.

On Saturday, the team defeated Burgettstown 3-to-2 and Oil Region 2-to-1. Riley Childress scored two goals and Alex Ferry one in the morning game. In the afternoon, Ferry scored twice on set pieces.

Early Sunday, Kinzua defeated Mars 1-0 on a goal by Jack Darling, assisted by Cassie Smelko.

Coaches credited Smelko, Gracia Clark, and Jarod Peterson with solid goalkeeping, Childress with timely defense, and Corban Reinard and Lennon Dailey with creative play on offense.

There were 16 teams in the ‘Blue’ division, and the tournament routinely draws over 5,000 soccer players.
