The 2021 Schuylkill League high school soccer season got underway over the weekend with several teams in action for non-league play.
The highlight of the weekend was the Coach Mark Wyllie Memorial Tournament at Pine Grove Area High School. The tournament was created to honor Wyllie, the 29-year Cardinals coach, who passed away last year following a battle with cancer.
During his time as Pine Grove coach, Wyllie racked up 340 wins and a Schuylkill League championship (1996) and a District XI title (2003).
