The Lady Eagles came home with a mark in the loss column tonight. The girls fell behind 1-0 at the half with the defense holding strong. Three minutes into the second half the girls found themselves down by two. Playing determined their offense picked up the pace and Faith Gingrich put the Lady Eagles on the board with 26 minutes to play. Trying to hold NCS’s offense back the girls played strong but the offensive opportunities were hard to come by. NCS scored late in the second and this proved to be too much for the Lady Eagles to make up the deficit with the final at 3-1.

With two offensive starters on the bench due to an illness and broken foot the Eagles knew the rematch with NCS was going to be difficult. The boys looked to be holding their ground through the start of the first half but 15 minutes in NCS scored. Three minutes later, on a cross from Blake Spangler-Jones, Seth Kabonick placed a beautiful one touch into the back of the net to tie the game at one. Another offensive injury sidelined Karch Carey for the rest of the game leaving the Eagles offense less potent. With most of its offensive pressure depleted the Eagles defense started to come under a lot of pressure as the Eagles were outshot 20-7. After a lopsided second half and only 10 players on the field for the last 30 minutes of the game, the Eagles found themselves ending the game with a 6-1 loss.

Both teams will regroup over the weekend and will host Juniata Mennonite on Monday night.
