Minersville Keeps Rolling
For the second consecutive league match, Minersville put up double-digits on the scoreboard. On Thursday, the Miners scored 10 in a shutout of Nativity. In just 4 matches, Minersville found the back of the net 33 times in league play.
Even at 4-0 and winning each convincingly, the wins only count as one and they’ll need to keep rolling as they have. That’s because Williams Valley keeps winning. On Thursday, the Lady Vikes topped Weatherly, 8-0. Williams Valley is at 3-0, just one less match played than Minersville. Those two face off next week in league play.
In the other Division 2 match, Schuylkill Haven topped Tri-Valley, 3-2, for their second straight league win.
