GREENCASTLE >> Greencastle-Antrim put together a good game on offense and defense to send Boiling Springs to a 4-0 boys soccer defeat Tuesday night at Kaley Field.
The victory also clinched the Mid Penn Colonial Division championship for the second straight season for the Blue Devils (10-3, 8-1 MPC).
"The defense did a great job to hold them to just three shots, because they have a couple of kids who can fly," G-A coach Scott Gelsinger said.
The Devils' offense posted two goals in each half and spread the scoring around. Brandon Stuhler and Josh Kline netted shots in the first half, and Luke Ritz and Avery Wengert tallied in the second half. Ian Gelsinger, Brandon Barnhart and Chris Bowman contributed assists.
Scott Gelsinger said, "Stuhler is doing a good job right now holding the ball up for us and getting our offense going. We have guys running off of him and we finished some nice opportunities tonight."
For the Bubblers (8-4-1, 4-4-1 MPC), Sam Arnold made four saves.

"Big Spring had a pretty good game plan," Ship coach Warren Jones said. "Our guys may have taken things a little lightly. It was quite a fight for our guys to get back in."
The game was tied 2-2 at halftime, but the Greyhounds (7-8-1, 5-3-1 MPC) scored a pair of goals in the second half and held off the Bulldogs for the victory. Braxton Shetter and Jacob Cox scored in the second half, while Chandler Olson and Ian Weikel had the first-half goals.
"We really turned it up in the second half, which was nice to see," Jones said. "We got some really good play out of our bench personnel tonight. A couple of younger guys really helped us out on defense, and Jacob Cox came through with the big goal for us tonight."

Jonah Stains had a throw-in that went right into the box, and although it bounced around a bit, Martin stepped to the ball and had a finish off the far-pst.
"Overall, it was a good game for us," Shalom coach Chris Lehman said. "Our defense played really well. Jake (Holderman), Mikey (White) and Nathan (Schaffer) all had really great games, and we locked it down on defense."
