High school boys’ soccer: Bald Eagle Area rallies past Philipsburg-Osceola to snap skid

Bald Eagle Area scored a pair of second-half goals to rally past Philipsburg-Osceola 2-1 Saturday morning, landing a win over their rivals for the first time in the careers of the Eagles’ seniors.

“We had tied them a couple times before,” BEA coach Jason Bair said. “I’m glad we were finally able to get it.”

Austin Krise put the Mounties on the board with 4:35 left in the first half.

Chris Dunklebarger tied it with help from Jared Gettig 16:24 into the second half, and Seth Koleno netted the winner 3:34 later with an easy tap-in from a few yards away after Brandon Gettig drew keeper Joe Bickle to the side and crossed the ball to an open Koleno.

Bickle made nine saves while Alex Boyer stopped two shots for BEA.
