Minersville Offense on Overdrive
Minersville’s girls’s soccer team seemingly got off to a high-flying start at the beginning of league play. Tuesday may be an indication it was just heating up.
After putting in 6 goals in each of the first two matches, the Miners put in 11 on Tuesday against Weatherly. Minersville is 3-0 in league play and alone atop Division 2.
In the other matches Tuesday, Lourdes edged Tri-Valley, 3-2. And it was the same scoreline for Schuylkill Haven in its win over Nativity.
Next Up …
The girls’ teams return to the pitch on Thursday.
Minersville looks to continue its net-filling ways in a match at Nativity. Williams Valley visits Weatherly and Schuylkill Haven goes to Tri-Valley in Division 2 action.
The big schools get together when Blue Mountain goes to Pottsville, Pine Grove heads out to Tamaqua, and North Schuylkill takes a trip to Lehighton.
