Raiders unable to hang on, fall to N. Potter

November 5, 2010

DUBOIS — Things could not have started any better for the Brookville Raiders Thursday night during the District IX Class A boys' championship game.

Unfortunately for the Raiders, the game didn't end at halftime.

Brookville jumped out to an early 1-0 lead and held it into the second half before Northern Potter scored two second-half goals to win its second-straight District IX title in DuBois.

The loss leaves Brookville with a bitter taste, as the No. 7-seeded Raiders impressively reached the finals, only to surrender two late goals and miss out on their second title in three years.

CLARION — The Punxsy boys' soccer team fell one magical moment shy of winning a District IX Class AA Championship in its first-ever appearance in the district's final game of the season.

The Chucks (15-4-1) scored midway through the first half, but as the clock continued to roll, Bradford (14-6) came closer and closer to scoring the equalizer.

After the Owls tied the game with eight minutes remaining in regulation, they scored again with seven minutes left in double overtime to earn the district title Wednesday night at Clarion University's Memorial Stadium, 2-1.

Chucks one win away from district crown

November 3, 2010

CLARION — After an emotional 4-3 victory in overtime Monday night in which the Punxsy boys' soccer team didn't play its best ball, the Chucks will face Bradford at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Clarion University's Memorial Stadium with the 2010 District IX Class AA Championship on the line.

Punxsy (15-3-1) hopes to add yet another first to a record-breaking season — a district banner.

It'll first have to get past the Owls, a squad that it hasn't played since Oct. 3, 2007, when Bradford earned a 4-3 win in double overtime in Punxsutawney.

Raiders down Rovers, advance to title game

November 3, 2010

DUBOIS — Brookville head coach Dan Smith has won his share of memorable games during his five-year run as the leader of the Raiders.

It's safe to say that Tuesday night's 2-1 win over Brockway just moved near the top of that list.

In a game that the Raiders clearly wanted to win about as much as a team could display, Brookville got the better of the Rovers after failing to beat them in two previous meetings this season during a District IX Class A semifinal playoff game at Clarion University's Memorial Stadium.

BROCKWAY — Punxsy head boys' soccer coach Phil Shenkle better nail down the copyright to Monday night's game in Brockway before someone else gets his or her hands on it.

For the third-straight meeting, the Punxsy and St. Marys boys' soccer teams played more than 80 minutes of competitive soccer that led to overtime, but this time, the Chucks were the ones celebrating at midfield.
