The Saegertown boys soccer team is making a run in the District 10 Class 3A playoffs. With a 2-0 win over the Meadville Bulldogs on Thursday, it led the squad to a head to head matchup against the Region 5 champion Fort LeBoeuf Bisons at General McLane yesterday. After a scoreless start, Cambridge Springs senior Griffin Hohn had a direct kick from 45 yards at the 24 minute. As Hohn kicked the ball towards the goal, teammate Iain Scott, Cambridge Springs junior, pressured the goalie by running towards him and distracting him, resulting in a goal for Saegertown.
“The defense stepped up and made some big plays,” said senior Jude Mattocks. “We came out and played our game and we knew this game was going to be a tough one.”
The rest of the match went scoreless, producing a 1-0 win for the Panthers. Mattocks summed up the game when he said, “We had lost to the Bisons two times earlier in the season 6-4 and 1-0, but we did not want to go down just yet. We played our hearts out.”
Their next match is the semifinal for District 10 Class 3A against the Cathedral Prep Ramblers at Veterans Stadium on November 3 at 5 p.m.
