Tyrone’s second half run tops Bald Eagle boys

First one half, the Bald Eagle Area boys soccer team went head-to-head with visiting Tyrone, finishing the half with almost identical stats.

But in the second, the Golden Eagles would get hot and deliver two unanswered goal as they went onto the 3-1 victory Thursday over Bald Eagle.

On senior night, the Bald Eagles honored Tyler Williams, Marshall Brooks, Joe Lang, Darren Huyett, Dillon Barnyak and Shane Evereth.

With the game knotted at one going into the second, the two teams defenses got our and dominated the ball as both teams tried to take the advantage offensively.

As the clock started to wind down the game had a feeling of whoever picked up the first goal might be able to take that momentum and take over the game.

The Golden Eagles’ Kelton Raabe broke the tie at 26:03 as he broke across and sent one home, giving them the 2-1 lead.

Despite the close shots by Bald Eagle, Tyrone had pushed away everything that was thrown at them.

With 14:17 left, the Golden Eagles added an insurance goal.

Alex Taylor was the lucky recipient as he picked up the ball and sent it past goalie Seth Koch and led them to the victory.

“Its more of an Us problem right now. One of my key guys is out in the middle so I had to put someone in the middle. When you take out a key component you have to know how to replace it,” said Bald Eagle coach Jason Bair. “We are still trying to work through it. It happened last game and it’s all brand new to these guys. We have to figure it out. It all comes down to how we play.”

Tyrone opened the game and blasted the first shot of the game but it only led to Tyrone’s first corner of the game.

After a barrage of passes around the goal area the Golden Eagles went away empty handed.

Bald Eagle made the most of its first shot as Evereth got loose and sent it home, giving his team the 1-0 advantage at 32:45 left in the half.

Less than 10 minutes later, the Golden Eagles tied the game when Mason Thomas scored on a penalty kick after being taken down inside the goalkeeper box.

From there, the two defenses went back and forth and mirrored each other for much of the rest of the half.

When the buzzer sounded to go into the intermission, both teams shot six, both had one goal while both goalkeepers collected three each.
