Lebanon County HS Highlights - Oct. 3
Game of the Day
Elco girls soccer 2, Lancaster Mennonite 1 (2 OT)
The Elco girls soccer team simply refuses to lose. It's a philosophy that was put to the test on Monday night.
The Raiders nearly absorbed their first defeat of the 2016 season Monday before pulling out a 2-1 double overtime victory over arch rival Lancaster Mennonite on the Blazers' home turf.
Now 14-0 overall and 10-0 in Section 3, Elco's record stayed unblemished after freshman Tanisha Grewal scored in the 96th minute to break a 1-1 stalemate that existed since late in the first half.
Ryelle Shuey gave Elco the early lead by scoring in the 4th minute, only to see Mennonite notch the equalizer in the 26th minute on a Calla Ashley goal.
With three saves, Emma Strickler picked up the win in goal for Elco, which outshot Mennonite 9-4.
Player of the Day
Eli Setlock, Annville-Cleona boys soccer, golf
You might say Eli Setlock had a busy day on Monday. He'd probably tell you it was worth it.
By day, Setlock turned in a fifth place finish in the Lebanon County Golf Tournament at Pine Meadows, shooting an 83 that helped A-C to a runner-up finish in the team standings.
By night, Setlock produced on the soccer pitch, scoring both goals on Senior Night as A-C blanked Donegal 2-0 in Section 3 action.
Safe to say, a day and night Setlock will remember for quite some time.
Lampeter-Strasburg 2, Cedar Crest 1
In South Lebanon, the Falcons' rough season continued in a Section 2 loss to the Pioneers.
