News Article- Bald Eagle

Box Score

Sep. 18, 2017

By TY R. STATES Sports Writer The Bearcats won 4-1. Photo by JAY WHITESELHuntingdon is off to a good start and kept improving Wednesday against visiting Bald Eagle Area. Heather Gutshall scored once and added two assists as the Bearcats took care of the Eagles 4-1. The Bearcats (4-0, 4-0 ML) are seeing good things on the field as players start performing at expected levels. A slow start saw the ‘Cats leading just 1-0 at halftime, but three second half goals secured the win. “It’s coming together,” Huntingdon head coach Michael Armstrong said. “We were flat, the movement of the ball was there, the passing to feet was there but it wasn’t quick. It wasn’t sharp.” Huntingdon played in control the majority of the contest, but for awhile things weren’t crisp. Passes weren’t quite connecting, shots were off target, but the defense was ready when Bald Eagle made its forays up the field. Jaelyn Mitchell and Mikaela Reed close things down and goalkeeper Katie Shultz is there when something does make it through. If Gutshall wasn’t taking a shot, she was creating one for a teammate. Kylie Glorioso and Maddie DeForrest had early opportunities at the goal. Midway through the first half the Bearcats got on the board. Gutshall fed Sydney Sellers in the box and she scored past Charlotte Harris to the right corner of the net. Two minutes into the second half the Bearcats went up 2-0. Glorioso sent a long ball where Gutshall raced in at Harris and beat her for the goal, Gutshall’s sixth of the season. She has scored in each of the first four games of the season. Five minutes later the Eagles made it a 2-1 game. Sarah Gates got by a defender and hit a shot high and into the net. Bald Eagle maintained some pressure after that, but Huntingdon was able to turn things around. Gutshall assisted on DeForrest’s first goal of the year. The sophomore found space in the box, drove right at Harris and buried the shot. A few minutes later it was Mitchell scoring from inside the box after a furry of shots. Mitchell’s hit caromed off the cross bar, down and then back into the goal. The Bearcat junior varsity (2-1) topped the Eagles 3-0. Olivia Langenbach, Jenna Powell, and Kayla Cianci scored goals. Huntingdon goes up against Hollidaysburg today at 6 p.m. at Detwiler Field in a rematch from last year’s District 6-AAA championship.
