MEADVILLE — Girls Soccer

Bulldogs tackle Tigers

GUYS MILLS — The Maplewood girls soccer team got out to a one-goal lead after Brianna Proudfoot scored off of Rachel Balbula’s assist.

However, Meadville rallied with four unanswered goals to claim a 4-1 non-region win over the Tigers on Saturday.

Korey Sayre, Ellie Holmgren, Amber Cole and Alexandra Smith each took a turn visiting the back of the Tigers’ net.

Bulldogs’ goalkeeper Ashley Piper made 15 saves, helping the squad improve to 3-0-0 on the season.

Maplewood fell to 0-2-0.

Rockets, Eagles tie

LINESVILLE — A match that started in a shootout ended in a stalemate as Titusville and Conneaut ended two halves and two overtime periods tied at 3-3 during non-region girls soccer on Saturday.

The teams combined for five goals in the first half. Titusville’s Gage Holmes scored 39 seconds into the game. Conneaut’s Keri Scott tied it up a couple minutes later. Then the Rockets (0-2-1) built a 3-1 lead off of goals by Hollie Chrisman and Bridget Ditty. Scott brought it back to a one-goal game with her second score of the match, scored at the 35 minute mark.

The second half was relatively quiet from an offensive standpoint. Then at the 15-minute mark, Conneaut’s Brooke Phelps broke the silence with a match-tying tally.

Both teams’ defenses held fast through the rest of regulation and the two OTs. Titusville goalkeeper Cara Hutchinson ended the day with 13 saves. For Conneaut (0-2-1), Monica Farley had 16 saves.

A South Carolina woman was arrested recently after the McDonald’s employee let her daughter spend the day playing in a nearby park while she worked her shift. The decision has created a debate over “free-range” parenting and whether it’s a good idea or not. What’s your take?

I’m fine with it. If she cannot afford childcare, what choice does she have?
This is horrible and very bad parenting.
I’m torn. It’s not right what she did, but it sounds like the mother had few other options.
