WINGATE - Andrew Miller scored twice and had an assist to lead Belleville Mennonite to a 3-1 win over Bald Eagle Area in boys soccer Monday.
The win marks a bit of a turnaround for the Thunder, who still need a win to hit the .500 mark. Also in the game, Noah Anders made his return to the lineup, assisting on Miller's second goal. He's a welcome site, coach Brian Renno said.
"It's a huge difference. He's a hard worker," he said. "I think he set the standard in the second half when we needed somebody."
The game left Miller on the cusp of a personal achievement - he's one goal away from becoming the first 100-goal scorer in Belleville Mennonite history.
"I just told him here when we got back to the school, 'Let's just take care of it,'" Renno said. "I think he was pressing a little bit hard tonight."
He won't have a chance until Sept. 24, when the Thunder (2-3-1) host Grace Prep.
Upper Dauphin 0
MILLERSTOWN - Greenwood's home debut in boys soccer was a win, but not without the same struggle that has plagued the Wildcats this season - getting the ball to enter the goal.
Tyler Fegley and Seth Ferguson each scored in the 2-0 Tri-Valley League victory over Upper Dauphin.
"It's still a little frustrating that we haven't put more balls in the net," Greenwood coach Tom Magill said, noting that his team was strong on defense.
"I thought we played better in the second half," he said. "We just couldn't put the ball in the net."
Greenwood (4-1-1, 3-0-1) hosts Millersburg Wednesday.
Juniata Mennonite 4, Sunbury Christian 1
McALISTERVILLE - Tony Gehman scored the third and fourth goals, both unassisted, as Juniata Mennonite picked up a 4-1 win over Sunbury Christian in an Allegheny Christian Athletic Association boys soccer game Monday.
Sunbury got on the scoreboard only after it was 4-0 in favor of the Lions.
"Possession play in the midfield was really a step above tonight from where we've played so far this season," Juniata Mennonite coach Kurt Wagner said. "Also, our defense and central midfielders had a great defensive game. Our outside midfielders and forwards made some more creative runs which helped to open up the game on the offensive third."
In the second half, the Lions' Jacob Metz made a save on a penalty kick that resulted from a hand ball in the box.
Midd-West 3, Milton 0
MIDDLEBURG - Kenedi Moyer scored fewer than three minutes into the second half, and the Midd-West girls took off after the break in a 3-0 Heartland Conference girls soccer win over Milton Monday.
Although the Mustangs didn't score again until the clock was inside 10 minutes, coach Russ Goodling said he got the output he wanted from his team on both sides of the ball.
"They were asked to step it up and work hard and they did it for 80 minutes tonight," he said. "The defense worked a lot better."
Midd-West also won the JV game, 5-0.
The Mustange (2-3, 1-2) host Shikellamy Wednesday.
Lewisburg 2, East Juniata 1 (OT)
LEWISBURG - After a huge win over a tough league rival, East Juniata has struggled in field hockey.
Monday, it was a tough afternoon against Lewisburg, a team the Tigers could see in the District 4 tournament. East Juniata gave up the first goal, tied the game, then fell 2-1 in overtime.
Stephanie Dressler had the Tigers' only goal, on a feed from Makenzie Bishop, in the latter stages of the second half. Haley Stanko scored the game winner for the Green Dragons with 6:23 left in the extra period.
"This was a tough loss. We didn't show up to play hockey the first half and then we played catch up the rest of the game," East Juniata coach Billie Haines said. "The second half we definitely played better.
"We did get a chance in overtime but again, we played too much defense and not enough offense."
East Juniata (3-2) gets back into the league schedule today, hosting Lancaster Country Day.
Everett 357, Mount Union 359, Northern Bedford 382, Bellwood-Antis 391
EVERETT - The home team had a two stroke edge, and thus pushed to second the Inter-County Conference's regular-season champion in the ICC golf championship Monday.
The match was played at Down River, and Everett, which calls the links home, shot a 357 to slip ahead of Mount Union's 359.
"They shot pretty well and we shot OK," Mount Union coach Matt Fiscus said. "We're really a two in the 80s and two in the 90s golf team on average and that's what we came in with today."
Brady Goodling was low for the Trojans at 84.
Mount Union is back on the home course today against Huntingdon.
Cumberland Valley 396, Mechanicsburg 427, Red Land 446, Cedar Cliff 463, Northern 463, Mifflin County 478, Carlisle 510
CARLISLE - Mifflin County's Matt Short was the only Husky golfer to card less than 90 as Mifflin County struggled at Carlisle Country Club Monday in a Commonwealth Division match hosted by Mechanicsburg.
Cumberland Valley, led by medalist Evan Overcash with 74, had all five of its scorers below 90 to win the match - in fact, the Eagles were the only team below 400.
Unlike recent matches, this one wasn't a tight race - the Huskies were 15 strokes off the fifth-place team.
Mifflin County (12-30 Mid-Penn) wrap up at the league tournament Sept. 23.
Cumberland Valley 5, Mifflin County 0
LEWISTOWN - It was a struggle for the Huskies on the tennis court Monday, as the Mifflin County girls lost their Commonwealth Division match to Cumberland Valley, 5-0.
Huskies coach Glenn Kyle said the team continues to improve -that if the girls played the first two matches like the most recent, they would have a much better record.
"They've gotten better," he said.
Today, the Huskies host Northern in a makeup match.
