Men’s Soccer

Gators rally past Raiders

Mt. Union wasted little time, scoring on a goal by Coty Lipply just 1:40 into the match. But Allegheny had the answer, chalking up three unanswered goals after the 45th minute to defeat the Purple Raiders 3-1 in a non-conference men’s soccer match on Tuesday at Frank B. Fuhrer Field.

Spencer Meschter knotted the score at 1 with a header into the net just 30 seconds before the end of the half. Tommy Richter had the assist.

Keith Danley then scored his first goal of the season five minutes into the second half to give the Gators a 2-1 lead.

Cameron Olson then put the insurance goal on the board in the 79th minute, getting the feed from Brian Graham.

John Lichina made five saves in goal as Allegheny improved to 5-4-2 on the season.

Women’s Soccer

‘Boro outlasts Bloom

EDINBORO — Withstanding a second half rally, the Edinboro women’s soccer team hung on to beat the Bloomsburg Huskies 4-2 on Tuesday night. The victory snapped a two-game losing streak for the Fighting Scots and improved them to 4-3-0 overall and 2-3-0 in the PSAC.

Linesville graduate Laurelee Clements and Becca Costello combined for three assists during the 4-2 victory over Bloomsburg.

The Fighting Scots struck early when Liz Debo tapped a pass from  Costello right past the goalie only 6:29 into the game. Less than nine minutes later, Costello notched another assist as her corner kick was headed in by Ashley DeVito for her second goal of the season.

With just seconds remaining in the first half, Allie Thompson crossed the ball and Ivone Aguilar tapped it to Brittany Shipley, who finished it by striking it across the ground and into the net. It was Shipley’s first career goal.

Bloomsbiurg responded with a pair of goals. And with the score now 3-2 and the Huskies within reach of tying it, the Fighting Scots were able to seal the victory with less than 15 minutes to go in the game. Laurelee Clements hit a free kick towards the net that a diving Debo was able to head into the net.

  • Hawley scores District 1 finishes off dominant pool performance by trouncing New Jersey

    Pitchers often get the most credit in shutout victories. And Emma Osborne, Katy Dunn and Emily Beddick have certainly been deserving for District 1.
    Its defense, though, has been equally deserving.

  • Sliding into second District 1 remains unbeaten after two routs

    Becca Siple’s response to a question on Twitter may have said it all.
    “Best experience of my life,” Siple said, when asked by The Meadville Tribune via Twitter to describe her experience thus far at the Senior League Softball East Regional Tournament. Following her response was the hashtag #D1isfamily.

  • Steelers camp Steelers LB Spence caps lengthy comeback

    The whistle blew and Sean Spence sprinted forward, each cathartic step distancing the linebacker from the horrific knee injury that threatened to end his NFL career before it even really began.
    Spence almost gleefully smashed into fullback Bryce Davis during the Pittsburgh Steelers’ first full contact drill of training camp on Monday. The two tussled for several seconds before Davis — his fists full of Spence’s jersey — pulled them both to the ground.

  • Roethlisberger OK with choice to wait on new deal

    There are days when Ben Roethlisberger can feel every single hit he’s absorbed during a decade as one of the NFL’s most fearless quarterbacks.
    And there are days when the Pittsburgh Steelers star sees the young faces surrounding him in the huddle and it seems like he can play forever.

  • Teen doping Survey: Teens experimenting with HGH on the rise

    Michael Guerreri wanted to try human growth hormones so he could look like a pro wrestler. Joe Badalanato hoped HGH would help him become a better football player. James O’Brien figured the drug would improve his fastball.
    The three 18-year-olds from suburban Philadelphia told The Associated Press this week that they bought bottles of HGH online in the past year. Turns out, what they bought was fake.

    Juan Pablo Montoya is back at Indianapolis Motor Speedway — one night only, an encore of sorts, in a guest-starring role for Team Penske.
    The Colombian is entered in the Brickyard 400 for the explicit purpose of winning at Indy in NASCAR and giving team owner Roger Penske one of the few trophies missing from his collection.

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.
