Boys’ JV Soccer Defeated by Woodberry
Host Woodberry Forest defeated Mercersburg, 4-0, in the Blue Storm’s boys’ junior-varsity soccer season opener September 11 in Woodberry Forest, VA.
The game was back and forth in the beginning until the host Tigers scored two goals within a few minutes of each other and took a 2-0 led to halftime. Mercersburg came out in the second half and put pressure on the opposing goalkeeper, but could not get any quality shots against the stout Woodberry defense. WFS (which was coached by former Mercersburg faculty member Eric Hicks) added two more goals to bring the final score to 4-0.
Mercersburg (0-1) returns to action Tuesday, September 14, when it faces Franklin County foe Fannett-Metal High School. Kickoff is set for 4:30 p.m. in Fannettsburg, PA.
