Tyrone came into the game very confident on the cold Saturday morning game. After beating Philipsburg 4-2 earlier in the season, the Golden Eagles made it a season sweep with a 1-0 overtime victory.

“This game helped us prepare for playoffs, mainly because it was on turf,” said junior center back Dan Parker.

The game started out even with both teams getting some shots on goal. Tyrone had some close opportunities by the entire offense.

We had a lot of good chances early in the game and we should have won sooner but we pulled through and left off on a good note to take Hollidaysburg by a storm this Thursday”

The Golden Eagles had many more opportunities throughout the first half but couldn’t finish. Tyrone has struggled with finishing all season.

Going into the second half Tyrone got a penalty kick in the box late in the half.

Junior Corey Johnston lined up the ball on the line and took a shot but the pressure got to him and the Philipsburg goalkeeper saved it.

The goalie threw the ball out for a counter attack. The Phillipsburg midfielder ran down the field but senior Nick Kosko stopped him and the final whistle blew.

In overtime, each team gets two ten minute halves to score and the first one to score wins. The coaches head a five-minute break to talk to the team on what they need to improve to win the game.

Tyrone wanted to improve their record and wanted to keep their winning streak so they had a lot of energy coming back on to the field after the little break.

Philipsburg has been in multiple overtimes in their season so they were prone to the pressure. The Golden Eagles, however, were put in their very first overtime this season.

The first half of OT ended with a couple of chances from both teams but no goals. Tyrone got sent out for the second half of OT and knew that this would be their last chance to keep the winning streak.

Two minutes into the second half of overtime Tyrone got a corner kick. Johnston took the corner kick placing it right onto senior forward, Andrew Pearson’s head to score. Pearson headed the ball in the back of the net for the overtime win.

“We had a lot of good chances early in the game and we should have won sooner but we pulled through and left off on a good note to take Hollidaysburg by a storm this Thursday,” said Parker.

    I think to speak about this victory all the young men that played should be represented in the pic not a select few. A couple in this pic did not even play in that game.

    Unfortunately, we are not able to have a photographer at every game. We did not have one at this game, so the author of the story chose one of our file photos. Apologies to everyone not represented.
