Shenkle not satisfied despite 7-0 win

September 24, 2013

PUNXSUTAWNEY — At any level, scoring seven goals in a soccer match is a rarity.

It's a strategic game in which not a lot of goals are generally scored.

So, when Punxsy walked off the field with a 7-0 victory against Curwensville, everyone had to be satisfied, no?

"No. I pulled all of the starters out in the first half because they were playing flat," head coach Phil Shenkle said. "They had no life. I yanked them all out and put in several subs and junior varsity players. We have to be able to start a game with passion, and they haven't been able to do that yet."

Both units came to rest facing north in the northbound lane.
