ABINGTON HEIGHTS MS: 2
The North Pocono JHS Boys team drew a tie versus Abington Middle School on Friday, September 20th, 2019. North Pocono had some "Low Pressure" defense in the first half but managed to regroup on defense in the second half of the game.
The team drew a 2-2 tie versus Abington MS, there were 2 handballs in the box by Abington which were missed by referees. One was particularly blatant and obvious alas, I still contend that:
"Referees DO NOT WIN OR LOSE SOCCER MATCHES, TEAMS DO."
The JHS Team despite scoring two goals in the first half, played a better overall second half and were playing up to their true potential on the pitch.
Scoring in the first half was Zachary Evans assisted by Eliot Bowen on a gorgeous cross from the left side.
Mr. Eliot Bowen is our scoring leader with an AMAZING 12 goals in just 6 games! Eliot is averaging an incredible 2 goals per game. Keep up the great work Eliot. Zachary Evans is number two in scoring with 7 goals averaging just over 1 goal per game. Mr. Evans is an accurate sniper on the pitch placing his shots with precision and power. Very nice Mr. Evans!
Mr. Bowen scored unassisted with a beautiful in and out move to make a window to shoot the ball on goal and score North Pocono's second goal of the match.
AJ Papp our goalkeeper had some "top shelf" foot saves to keep North Pocono in the lead and maintain the 2-2 draw. Great Job AJ!
The B Game was a nill-nill draw. Mason Stevens played like "a man possessed" in the second half. Mason made all the right moves and passes early and often. Great Job! Mason won our hearts because he really gave over 100% in that half and it was a joy to watch him play up to his potential.
The team remains "invictus." Vocabulary word...undefeated, unconquerable.
