Junior Atta Ullah recorded his fourth hat trick of the season, netting four goals Wednesday in Furness' 9-0 romp over Roxborough in Public League boys' soccer.

Desmond Smith and Miguel Macias added their first varsity goals, and Furness held visiting Roxborough without a single shot on goal.

In other Public League action:

Lincoln forward Meriklen Kercini bagged three goals and teammate Washington Kimber added a goal and three assists, as the Railsplitters rolled to an 8-0 win over Boys' Latin.

Diminutive freshman forward Reggie Lloyd, of Del-Val Charter, pushed his season total to 20 goals in only five matches, his hat trick and assist leading to a 4-1 victory over Lamberton.

Four players scored as Fels, backed by freshman goalkeeper Emmanuel Carie's 12 saves, beat Philadelphia Academy Charter, 4-1.

Catholic. Midfielder Jack Dusing's second-half strike propelled La Salle into a tie for first place in the Catholic League with a 1-0 win over Archbishop Wood.

After 70 scoreless minutes, Dusing found a rebound fall to him 25 yards from the goal and blasted a shot into the upper left corner of the net, sending the Explorers to a 7-1 league record.

Joining La Salle atop the Catholic League is Archbishop Ryan, 1-0 winner over host Conwell-Egan.

In the 10th minute, Ryan's Angel Luviano volleyed teammate Michael Kirby's direct kick into the net for the only scoring.

Cella stopped all seven shots he faced, and Staples banged in a second-half penalty kick.

Sophomore striker Evan Needs planted three in the net and assisted on two other goals as The Christian Academy defeated Phil-Mont Christian, 6-1.


La Salle won its second straight Catholic League boys' title, narrowly edging out St. Joseph's Prep, 443-447, with every other school finishing at least 56 strokes behind the Explorers.
