Boys soccer traveled to Juniata on Saturday and couldn’t pull through in the second half, causing them to a 2-0 loss.

During the first half, Tyrone set up in a 4-3-3 and Tyrone felt good about their performance. Tyrone was able to shut down Juniata’s offense and keep possession of the ball having a couple of chances on goal. 

“Just watching the game you can tell that we were out playing Juniata in the first half,” said freshman Brayden Daniels.

Tyrone believed that they were playing a better game than Juniata considering we usually do not perform well against them. Tyrone just needed to finish their chances in front of Juniata’s goal. 

Tyrone’s defense stayed strong throughout the first half despite not having both starting center backs.

We played well through the first half but struggled to keep the ball and continued to panic in our defensive third in the second”

Tyrone went into the half hoping to get a goal of their high pressure during the first 10 minutes just like their game agianst Penns Valley. However, their high pressure backfired. 

Tyrone’s defense started to get broken down and Juniata ended up scoring on two chances in the second half.

“We played well through the first half but struggled to keep the ball and continued to panic in our defensive third in the second,” said senior Keegan Raabe.

The first goal happened in a corner in the 53rd minute. The ball got sent into the box and a Juniata player was able to poke it past the crowd of Tyrone Players.

Tyrone continued to fight for a goal but struggled winning headers. Tyrone was able to keep Juniatas shots to a minimum during the last couple of minutes of the second half.

The second goal happened when a ball got sent into the box from the right side of the field and a Juniata player took a touch then put the ball right above senior keeper Alex Roberts reach.
