Everything you missed in high school sports — and isn’t listed elsewhere in the CDT — from Tuesday:
State College advances to league title game
GREENCASTLE The Little Lions boys’ soccer team made over a two-hour drive Tuesday to compete in the Mid Penn Championship semifinals to Greencastle-Antrim High School.
Never miss a local story.
The long trip caused a slow start, which saw no goals scored in regulation. But, in the end, the Little Lions still picked up the game-winner in a 1-0 double-overtime victory to advance to the league’s championship game
Fernando del Castillo picked up an assist from Jacob Whipple and found the back of the net for the winner in the 97th minute.
“Greencastle played well and created some pressure, but we were able to keep them in front of us — for the most part,” Little Lions coach Danny Orton said. “Going forward, we found greater fluidity as the game went on. We created four or five top chances and finally scored from a great ball from (Jacob) Whipple for Fernando (del Castillo) to nod home. The fight from these guys has been a hallmark of our season.”
With the win, State College moved into the Mid Penn Championship game, which is slated for Thursday against Lower Dauphin. The Little Lions will travel to Henry Hershey Field for a 7 p.m. kickoff.
BEA cruises past Tyrone
WINGATE Three different Eagles scored three different goals to make quick work of Tyrone 3-1.
Garrett Barnhart, Trent Donley and Jared Gettig all scored for Bald Eagle Area.
BEA will next take on Bellefonte on Wednesday and, with the way the standings have fallen, the game will decide the Mountain League champion.
