Michael Stoner

Cory Johnson broke the all time career goals record vs. Huntingdon with the 56th goal of his career.

The Eagles were thirsty for a win against the Bearcats after tying them 0-0 on September 24 but the Golden Eagles lost their last regular season game 2-1.  There was a good subplot to the loss as senior Corey Johnson broke the school record for career goals in his last regular season game.

Tyrone came into the first half ready go, moving the ball up the field with urgency. After an attempted shot by Hungtingdon, goalkeeper Alex Roberts punted the ball down field. The ball was won in the air by Corey Johnston against Tiger’s Marcus Stratton. Corey turned into the box and scored. The goal was assisted by Alex Roberts and was scored at 35:18.

This was Corey Johnston’s 56th goal, beating the original all time scoring record of 55 held by  Noah D’Angelo. 

The Eagles had four more shots in the first half but no success was found.

Tyrone was ready to go into the half 1-0 but a long kick down field gave the Bearcats a corner kick. The ball was headed into the goal at 3:31, scored by Huntington’s Marcus Stratton. 

Both teams went into halftime with a score of 1-1, talking over what we can they can do to better improve their second half performance.

Huntington worked the ball down the field quickly and got the ball in the box within five minutes. 

“We played hard but we caused to many little mistakes that added up and cost us the game,” said junior Kelton Raabe.
