A roundup of Saturday’s high school sports results:
Koleno goal gives Bald Eagle Area victory over Philipsburg-Osceola
It took a perfect set piece, but the Bald Eagle Area boys’ soccer team was finally able to solve the Philipsburg-Osceola defense Saturday morning at Alumni Stadium.
Never miss a local story.
Seth Koleno’s goal with 16:15 left decided the Eagles’ soccer victory over Philipsburg-Osceola. Koleno headed in a long throw-in from Garrett Barnhart to beat Mounties keeper Jaylen Johnson.

Nkosi Govere and Sander Schjoelberg netted the goals, one in each half, while the defense posted the fourth shutout of the season for the Little Lions (5-1-1).
