Greenwood 4, Millersburg 0
MILLERSTOWN - The Wildcats might not have demonstrated the intensity or skill coach Tom Magill wanted to see, but the Greenwood boys soccer team still managed the 4-0 shutout win over Tri-Valley League opponent Millersburg Wednesday.
"First half was just like a comedy of errors on our part," Magill said of the trapping and passing errors the Wildcats had in the first half as they only managed to net one of their goals before the break off a Seth Ferguson shot with 4:33 left in the half.
In the second, Tyler Fegley, Kevin Sheaffer and Hunter Roth all pulled together to put up the rest of the Wildcats' goals for the win.
"The expectation was we should have played better, but to give the Millersburg team credit, they played hard," Magill said.
The Wildcats (5-1-1, 4-0-1) will host TVL opponent Juniata Saturday.
Mount Union 3, Southern Fulton 1
WARFORDSBURG - Mount Union had a service game that was hard to beat Wednesday, and it resulted in a 3-1 win for the Trojans over non-conference opponent Southern Fulton.
"It was definitely the biggest factor in the first and fourth games," Mount Union coach Tessa McCormick said of her team's service game, which included a 16-ace performance from Abby Grove.
Grove, who collected 10 of her aces in the stanza, led the team to a 25-14 win in the fourth game for the 3-1 win.
The Trojans held Southern Fulton to 10, 18 and 14 points in the first, second and fourth games respectively, but were handed a 25-23 loss in the third set.
"The third game we kind of fell asleep and thought we were going home," McCormick said.
But with the rally in the fourth game, Mount Union improved its record to 5-2 and will host Fannett-Metal Monday.
