Huntingdon, Tussey win By TY R. STATES Sports Writer
Huntingdon was all business against visiting Tyrone Thursday and controlled the entire match. Heather Gutshall scored four goals -- giving her 50 for her career -- to lead the Bearcats to a 6-1 win over the Golden Eagles.
The ‘Cats (7-4-1, 7-2-1 ML) have won their last two after a three-game slide. Huntingdon beat Tyrone 6-0 earlier in the season.
“That’s the way we drew it up. That’s the way it’s suppossed to happen,” Huntingdon head coach Michael Armstrong said. “You move the ball from inside to outside and back in and score goals.”
During the three-game losing streak the Bearcats didn’t score at all during that time. A six-goal outbust is sure to help everyone the rest of the way.
Pretty much immediately out of the gate the Bearcats controlled the ball and started taking shots. Gutshall, Rachel Gwinn, Sydney Sellers, Maddie DeForrest and others were getting involved in the offense.
Gutshall collected the first three goals of the game. DeForrest assisted on the first goal nine minutes into the match.
Five minutes later Gutshall scored again off a throw-in, carrying the ball across the top of the box before firing the shot.
After a free kick by Jordan Hawkins, Gutshall took advantage of the good position it created to make the score 3-0.
“The play from Rachel (Gwinn) and Jordan (Hawkins) in the middle was top notch tonight,” Armstrong remarked.
Jenna Powell started the next scoring play with a long ball. Corinne Reamer got the ball to DeForrest who gave the ‘Cats a 4-0 lead with her sixth goal of the year.
The Eagles got on the board with 6:18 to go before the half on a nice, long shot from a direct kick.
Sellers set Gutshall up for her fourth goal early in the second half. Gutshall has 13 on the season and is still in position to chase down Katie Young for the Bearcat girls’ career scoring record.
Only five minutes later Gutshall added an assist as Gwinn scored for a 6-1 advantage.
The Bearcats junior varsity (5-2-1) downed Tyrone 3-1. Sellers scored twice and Megan Lynn had a goal.
Huntingdon heads to Bald Eagle Area Monday.
