BEA falls to Indian Valley

WINGATE — Indian Valley took a two-goal lead midway through the second half on its way to a 3-1 decision over Bald Eagle Area on Saturday.

The Warriors took a 1-0 lead in the 15th minute on Korene Lichtenwaler’s goal. Neither team would score again until Indian Valley’s Bre Shugarts tallied an unassisted goal in the 60th minute, followed by Erin Bishop’s goal with under three minutes left in the game. Taylor Parsons scored for BEA (1-3) on a penalty kick with a minute remaining.
