Following a scoreless first half, Lawrenceville scored three times in the second half to halt the Mercersburg’s boys’ varsity soccer team’s three-match win streak October 9 on Steiger Field in a contest played on Mercersburg’s Family Weekend.

The visiting Big Red scored in the 50th minute off a corner kick, and then added two more goals in the final eight minutes after the Blue Storm brought a defender forward in an offensive push to tie the game.

The Blue Storm (3–5 overall, 0–2 Mid-Atlantic Prep League) visits local rival St. Maria Goretti Tuesday, October 12. Kickoff in Hagerstown, MD, is set for 4:30 p.m.
