Local Briefs: Trojans pull away from Bulldogs, win 4-0

MEADVILLE — Meadville hung with McDowell for one half. But the Trojans pulled away with three quick strikes to start the second half, grabbing a 4-0 victory over the Bulldogs in a Region 6 boys soccer match on Tuesday at Bender Field.

“We didn’t come to play,” said Meadville head coach John McGlinn. “We made a lot of mistakes. And guys just weren’t in it. It’s tough.” The loss was the third straight  after Meadville’s 7-0 start.

“Three tough games in a row,” said McGlinn, whose team is now 7-3-0 on the year and will try to right the ship against Saegertown on Saturday. “If we come to play, we can hang with any of these teams. We just didn’t do it (Tuesday).”

David Masteller gave McDowell a 1-0 lead halfway through the first half, getting an assist by Ryan Huffman.

That’s the way the score would remain until the second half when Tobi Flimm punched one into the net just four minutes in. Huffman also got the assist on that one.

Five minutes later, Josh Hanko made it 3-0. Huffman notched his third helper of the game on the score.

And before the half was over, Eldin Sabic put the final marker on the scoreboard, getting an assist from Luis Rivero.

“(McDowell) puts you under pressure,” said McGlinn. “They serve a lot of long balls real fast. ... They’re probably the most direct team we’ve played, just sending the ball up all the time.”

Goalkeeper Seth Dinicola made one save to earn the shutout.

The Trojans improved to 7-1-0 overall and 2-0-0 in Region 6 with the victory.

Thunder top Panthers

SAEGERTOWN — The Calvary Baptist Christian Academy boys soccer team traveled to Saegertown Tuesday afternoon and picked up an impressive 2-1 win over the Panthers in non-region action.

Gabe Opp put the Thunder ahead with a goal in the first half, but the lead wouldn’t last long as Saegertown’s Peter Maddocks tied the contest just two minutes before halftime.

The game was decided on a penalty kick with five minutes left in regulation, when Jason Caldwell scored to put the Thunder ahead for good.

Calvary Baptist keeper Caleb McAdams finished with 14 saves in the win.

Poll

The latest proposed expansion plan for the Crawford County Courthouse potentially would eliminate the former Tarr Mansion on Diamond Park to make room for a county administrative building. Should the 1860 mansion be demolished?

Leave it alone because it’s historic.
Try to incorporate it into the proposed expansion.
It’s too far gone to save, but it’s memory may be preserved with an artifacts and photo display within the proposed courthouse complex.
