Eagles Soccer Blanked by Bearcats 3-0

Tyrone’s defense made plays Tuesday night against Huntingdon, but the offense could not generate enough momentum to put pressure on the stout Bearcat’s defense, resulting in a 3-0 loss for the Eagles.

Both teams came out of the gates fast but neither team budged, turning the game into a defensive battle for the majority of the first half.

The scoreless tie ended with 18 minutes left in the first half with a Huntington goal making the score 1-0 Bearcats.

Tyrone’s defense, led by Junior goalie Isaac Woomer along with senior defenseman Ethan Vipond, Sophomore Dan Parker, and Junior Nick Kosko kept the Bearcats from scoring again in the first half. Making the score 1-0 Bearcats at halftime.

Huntington started off the second half with a bang scoring a goal only 21 seconds into the half on defensive miscommunication by Tyrone. Making the score 2-0 Bearcats.

Huntington’s offense then put the game away with one final goal with 16 minutes remaining in the game.

Tyrone’s offense came close to scoring, but could not put a ball in the back of the net.

“We did a good job playing with Huntington, but we hit a wall,” said senior Andrew Sherren.

Although Tyrone lost the game they showed promise on the defensive side of the ball. If their offense can play up to the same level as the defense the Eagles look to be in good shape for the rest of the season.
