Wed. Pa. boys’ roundup: C.R. South earns share of title

Posted: October 20, 2010

Dan Pinho's two goals helped host Council Rock South beat Bensalem, 5-1, and clinch a tie for the the Suburban One National Conference soccer title with rival Council Rock North on Wednesday.

The Golden Hawks (14-2-1 overall, 11-2-1 league), ranked No. 4 in The Inquirer's Southeastern Pennsylvania Top 10, scored three first-half goals for a 3-1 lead.

Council Rock North topped visiting Neshaminy, 2-1, to claim its piece of the title. Raleigh D'Amico and Billy McConnell scored for the Indians (12-3-2, 11-2-1). They last claimed a title in 2006, when they won the state championship.

Suburban One Continental. Nick McGarry scored with nine minutes left in the second half to give Central Bucks East a 1-0 win at Souderton, clinching the division title for the Patriots (10-4-3, 9-3-2).

Friends Schools. Pablo Sisniega earned his 10th shutout of the season, turning back all four shots he faced, in Shipley's 4-0 win at Westtown. The Gators are 16-1-1 overall and can finish the league season at 8-0 with a win over Germantown Friends on Friday. Sam Marks led Shipley with a goal and an assist.

The Gators also got goals from by Evan Romano, Mike Stewart and E.J. White.

Tri-County. Tom Brown and Nick Tilley each scored twice to lift host Phelps to an 8-0 win over Wyncote.

Phelps scored five first-half goals and is now 8-2-1.

Cross-Country

At the Daniel Boone Homestead, Boyertown posted the best team and individual performances at the Pioneer Athletic Conference championships.

The Bears turned back a spirited effort by second-place Pottsgrove thanks, in part, to Brett Kelly's first-place individual finish. Kelly negotiated the 3.1-mile course in 16 minutes, 5 seconds and that was 13 seconds better than second-place finisher Chris Lacava of Pope John Paul II. Boyertown finished with 69 team points and Pottsgrove was second with 79.
