LEWISBURG — On Monday, Sept. 12, the Twin Valley South boys soccer team defeated rival Tri-County North 5-1 in a game that was postponed earlier in the season due to inclement weather conditions.
Twin Valley South goal keeper Zach Guehring had 21 saves on the night.
South Freshman Aaron Clark scored the first goal of the game off an assist from Bryant Marker to put his team up 1-0. Marker then scored the next goal off an assist from Daniel Page. Marker later scored two more goals to complete a hat trick. Both of his next two goals were assisted by Travis Lovely.
The final goal was scored by Jacob Wells off an assist from Clark.
“We started off a little slow early in the first half,” South coach Clay Young said. “I wanted us to keep attacking, to try and tire out their team since they only had one substitute player. I thought our whole team had a good performance.”
Young said his team’s unselfish play was key to the win.
“The thing I like about our team is that we are unselfish and have many players who can put the ball in the back of the net,” he said. “I thought we had a couple breakdowns defensively and needed to limit the amount of shots for the opposition. Overall, it was a good league win and three points towards league. So we will continue to try to get better and make improvements where we need to do so.”
Twin Valley South was scheduled to play on Tuesday, Sept. 13 at Stivers, while Tri-County North was scheduled to play at Bethel on Thursday, Sept. 15. Results of those contests had not been reported as of press time.
