The Pine Grove Area soccer team defeated the Pottsville Crimson Tide in a 3-0 victory. This win was especially big for the team as it was a huge win for them, and it came on their Senior Night. The first half of the game remained scoreless and it looked to be a defensive battle. Roughly 15 minutes into the second half, Hunter Deichert and Ethan Hannevig scored back-to-back goals within a minute. The Crimson Tide would then concede the third and final goal to Hayden Williams with 3 minutes left in the game.

Winning on Senior Night is an important win for everyone one the team. The seniors fought hard to ensure they’d win their final Senior Night, and win they did. Hunter Deichert (Cpt., Sr.) said, “It felt great to win with the seniors that night on the field and I will always cherish that memory.”

The Team is having a very successful season so far, as they made both Districts and Leagues. They’re hoping to improve on where they ended last season, which was a loss in the District 11, 3A finals to Notre Dame-Green Pond.
