SPRING-FORD HIGH SCHOOL: 2
The Boys' Varsity game versus PAC rival Spring-Ford ended in a 2-2 tie despite 20 extra minutes of play in overtime. The Warriors fell behind early in the first half when a Spring-Ford player scored after the ball ping-ponged around the 18 yard box and fell to his feet. Later in the first half the Warriors tied up with game via a free kick by Zach Stevenson, who passed it to Otto Hull who then assisted Matt Weber in the first goal of his Varsity career.
Scoring in the second half consisted of a similar manner. Spring-Ford capitalized on an opportunity and took the lead 2-1. Yet the Warriors kept battling and their persistence paid off in a low shot to the corner of the net by Steven Penjuke with the assist by Zach Stevenson.
With the end of regulation time, the two teams lined up for 'golden goal' overtime. Both teams had good opportunities to claim victory, but the game remained tied by the end of the twenty minute session.
Steve Remish saved a penalty kick and collected four other saves while Charlie Bordonaro contributed two saves in the first half. The defensive unit of Ryan Baldwin, Graham Halfpenny, Tony Paone, Quinton Stemler, and Jake Smeykal kept pace with a very adept Spring-Ford team. Midfielders Chris Rowland, Brayden Ahlum, John Schmitt, Eddie Carbajal, and Jacob Gorcyzca battled for possession and strikers Zach Willen and Matt Schwertfeger made the most of their playing time.
