East Juniata 1, Halifax 0

HALIFAX–Cade Brubaker scored in the first half, and it proved to be all the East Juniata Tigers needed in their 1-0 win over Halifax on Thursday.

Brubaker gathered a rebound, off of a shot by Jayden Martin, and fired it into the top, far corner.

Coach CoryFronk was especially pleased with the way his defense played in the shutout.

“I felt our defensive effort was solid, with very few breakdowns tonight. Most of the time they stepped up and won 50/50 balls and marked well,” Fronk said.

Fronk also mentioned that he expects his offense to step up, citing missed opportunities as a big focal point moving forward.

“Our possession and buildup to scoring opportunities was decent, however we will definitely have to increase the percentage of scoring chances we convert, “ Fronk said. “Our statistician had us with 20 shots. That’s a lot of missed opportunities, but fortunately you only have to win by one goal.”
