Bulldogs pull away late against Franklin

MEADVILLE — With a one-goal lead at the break, the Meadville boys soccer team poured it on during the second half en route to a 4-1 home win over Franklin Saturday evening.

The Bulldogs, who missed multiple opportunities to score in the first half, made sure of their shots late in the contest. Meadville’s Cottrell McDonald didn’t waste much time following halftime, burying a pass from Troy Hovis past the Franklin keeper less than seven minutes into the second half to push the Bulldog lead to 2-0.

Just three minutes later, Meadville struck again, once again off the foot of McDonald, this time on a free kick, to make it 3-0.

Franklin finally got on the board when Vince Paczkoskie scored on a penalty kick. Meadville answered with a Hovis goal, assisted by McDonald, with just three minutes left in the game to secure the win.

Meadville got on the scoreboard at the 20-minute mark when Brandon Owens took a Hovis assist and scored to make it 1-0.

The Bulldogs outshot Franklin 10-7. Meadville keeper Tanner Stanton finished with six saves.

Meadville improves to 4-0, and returns to action Tuesday when it hosts General McLane.

Cats ignite in 2nd half

SAEGERTOWN — Following a scoreless first half, the Saegertown boys soccer team erupted for three goals in the first six minutes of the second half on its way to a 3-0 victory over visiting Girard on Saturday.

It was the second consecutive shutout for goalkeeper Zach Coon, who once again had strong support from his defensive line of Lawrence Brumbaugh, Chris Courson, Jesse Stewart and Jesse Bates.

Matt Schenberg opened the second-half scoring by outrunning Girard’s back line to a long penetrating ball from Trent Krzysiak. Schenberg’s strike from 15 yards out found the side netting to give Saegertown a 1-0 lead. Minutes later, Todd McKinney made a run to create space for Peter Mattocks to pass through to Lucas Smith who doubled the lead with a cool finish. Schenberg rounded out the scoring only minutes later, connecting with a lobbed pass that he headed past the onrushing keeper before touching it into the open net.

Now 2-1 on the season, Saegertown travels to Waterford on Monday to on Fort LeBoeuf at 4 p.m.

  • MLB replay Selig calls replay start ‘remarkable’

    Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig says the sport’s new replay system is working well despite a few problems during its first two weeks.
    While baseball began video review late in the 2008 season, it was limited to potential home runs and boundary calls. The new system that began March 30 vastly expands the types of plays that managers and umpires can ask to be reviewed at a replay center in New York.

  • Watson pulls away at Augusta to win second green jacket

    One of golf’s most exciting players squeezed most of the drama out of the Masters on Sunday. That’s just fine with Bubba Watson.
    All he cared about was slipping into that green jacket.
    Instead of hitting a 40-yard hook out of a forest of Georgia pines — the signature shot in his playoff victory two years ago — the final act Sunday at Augusta National took place on the 18th green. Watson had a three-shot lead and consulted with his caddie on a 15-foot birdie putt.
