BOYS SOCCER: Tuesday's roundup, Greencastle-Antrim picks up another 1-0 victory
MERCERSBURG >> For the fifth time this season, Greencastle-Antrim's boys soccer team won by a score of 1-0.
This time, the Blue Devils needed just one goal midway through the first half to take down James Buchanan in Mid Penn Colonial Division action.
"We get a lot of shots, we just can't finish," G-A coach Scott Gelsinger said. "We need to start putting them away."
Luke Herman scored the lone goal of the game for Greencastle (6-2, 4-1 MPC). On a throw-in, the Blue Devils got the ball to Brandon Stuhler, who made a pass across the box to Herman, who was breaking down the side. He made a fine finish on a basically open net.
Bryson Robinson made two stops to preserve his sixth shutout of the season.
"Bryson Robinson came up with two big saves on breakaway that kept us in the game," Gelsinger said. "He had a really good game. JB played hard all night; you know going into JB that it's going to be a battle."
Sean Martin finished with six saves for the Rockets (0-9-1, 0-5 MPC).

SHIPPENSBURG 2, BOILING SPRINGS 2 >> Boiling Springs scored in the last five minutes of regulation, and it had to settle for a Mid Penn Colonial Division draw with Shippensburg.
"I thought we played very well in the first half and had a lot of opportunities," Greyhound coach Warren Jones said. "They seemed to pick up the tempo in the second half. Their keeper blocked a PK early in the second half, and that seemed to give them some momentum."
Although Shippensburg (5-4-1, 3-1-1 MPC) was out-shot 25-14, it managed to take a lead midway through the second half on a Jackson VanHorne goal.
Matt Ly then scored for Boiling Springs on a penalty kick in the 76th minute to send it overtime.
"Even though they out-shot us, I thought our shots were probably a little better organized," Jones said. "We might have gotten a little flat toward the end and maybe were a little tired from last night. That being said, to play Boiling Springs to a draw, I thought we did really well."
Braxton Shetter also had a goal and an assist for the Hounds, who got 13 saves from Spencer McKenna.

WAYNESBORO 2, BIG SPRING 1 >> Waynesboro needed heroics, and it got some in a Mid Penn Colonial Division win over Big Spring.
The Indians (3-6, 3-2 MPC) trailed 1-0 for much of the second half, but Joey Daniels tied the game up in the 80th minute to force overtime. And in the final minute of the first extra period, Aaron Tylicki assisted Derek Buhrman to give Waynesboro the win.
Waynesboro out-shot the Bulldogs 12-9, but had just four corners to Big Spring's five. James Barr made eight saves in goal.

MCCONNELLSBURG 1, EVERETT 0 >> Jake Boehme became the hero for McConnellsburg when he scored with 31 seconds left in overtime to send Everett to a Sideling Hill League loss.
"That was easily in the top three of the most intense games I've ever seen," Spartan coach Cory Houck said. "Any fans that paid to get into the stands definitely got their money's worth."
After the teams went scoreless for nearly 90 minutes, Boehme got the ball about 25 yards out. He juked around a pair of defenders before sneaking the ball underneath the goalkeeper. Hunter Souders had five saves for the Spartans (6-0, 4-0 SHL).
"Everett's coaching staff has done a great job of turning their program around," Houck said. "That was the best Everett team I've seen in my four years here, and they are definitely much improved from last season."

King started the scoring early, notching a goal in the first minute of the game, and he did it again in the opening minutes of the second half as well. Martin had both assists.
"We had a very solid game overall," Shalom coach Chris Lehman said. "Especially coming after two losses last week, it was good to get a win. We also tied Faith earlier this season, so it was nice to have a complete game against them."
Travis West had one save for the Flames (6-2-1, 6-0-1 MDCC).

The Blazers (2-7, 2-5 MDCC) got on the board in the fifth minute when Kenneth Hott found Eric Woo for a score, and after Broadfording tied the game, Sterling Bard scored a pair of goals to give CVC a 3-1 lead.
After the red card was issued moments after the Blazers' final goal, the Lions started the comeback with a score in the 37th minute. They then tied the game in the 79th and won with a goal in the 99th minute.
"Even playing a man down, the kids picked it up and came together," CV Christian coach Stan Hott said. "(Goalkeeper) Eli Black is usually the youngest guy on the field, but he really stepped up tonight."
Cullen Spealman notched an assist for the Blazers.
