Tyrone 6, Central 1

Tyrone Golden Eagles offense exploded for 6 goals, 5 in the first half, on their way to a 6-1 victory against the Central Scarlet Dragons.

“It felt great to score 3 goals,” said sophomore Andrew Pearson, “But it felt even better helping to contribute to a win for the fellas.“

Sophomore Andrew Pearson started off the barrage of goals with his first which soared into the top right corner and bounced off the post into the goal to give Tyrone a 1-0 lead in the first 10 minutes.

Soon after freshman Nick Vasbinder scored the first goal of his varsity career on a chip pass from Blake Johnston to make the score 2-0.

Andrew Pearson then scored his second goal by striking the ball into the far right post which rebounded back into the goal.

Tyrone quickly scored their fourth goal of the half after Blake Johnston stepped over Central defender and floated the ball to Nick Vasbinder who finished the goal into the bottom left corner.

Blake Johnston scored the goal of the night by sending in a banger from 35 yards out which careened off the top cross bar and soared into the back of the net.

Thirty minutes into the second half Andrew Pearson finished his hat trick off a Hunter Jackson through ball that sliced through the Central Defense and arrived right at Pearson’s foot who was able to easily finish the shot. Shortly after Central were able to score their only goal of the game on a keeper error.

However, Tyrone’s 6-1 win did come at a significant cost. Starting goal keeper Isaac Woomer will be out for the remainder of the season with a collarbone fracture after being injured by an opposing Central player on a play in front of the net.

Tyrone 0, Philipsburg 1

Tyrone splits season series with Phillipsburg in rainy 1-0 loss.

Tyrone controlled the possession game in the first half. Tyrone had multiple first half chances but due to the slick turf they couldn’t convert.

Mid way into the second half Philipsburg scored the only goal of the game after they hustled to the ball and slid the ball into the back of the net.

After that goal Tyrone couldn’t muster any offensive chances until it was too late.
