Wed. Pa. boys' roundup: Freshman fuels Fels win

Posted: October 11, 2012

Freshman Emanuel Carie continued to impress by making eight saves, leading Fels to a 4-0 win at Prep Charter in a Public League boys' soccer match on Wednesday.

The shutout was the second in his last four games.

The game was scoreless at halftime, and it looked as if Carie had a large task ahead to keep the Panthers in the game.

The second half featured an offensive rush, though, with Abraham Kamara pacing Fels with two scores and Jorge Avecilla helping with two assists.

Elsewhere in the league:

Hashem Adulrasool found the net in each half and assisted on another goal to lift Lincoln to a 3-1 win at Philadelphia Academy Charter.

Masterman did all its scoring in the first half, sparked by Harry Taggart's two goals, in a 5-1 win over host Boys' Latin. Taggart added to the Blue Dragons' single-season scoring record, now at 18 goals.

Two goals from Southern's Joseph Koroma in the final 15 minutes were not enough as the Rams fell, 3-2, at Franklin Learning Center.

Junior midfielder Jim Elkins Borfay factored in each goal, finding the net twice and notching two assists, in Mastbaum's 4-2 triumph over host Science Leadership.

Colin Yeager scored twice, including the game-winner in the 72d minute, to move visiting Roxborough past Douglas, 3-2.

Chris Black scored for the second time in the game's final minutes to earn visiting Northeast a 3-3 draw with Washington.

Catholic. Archbishop Wood moved past host Father Judge, 3-1, behind two goals from Steven Smith. Dan MacDonald helped with two assists.

Nonleague. Hill School finally found the net in the 64th minute on a Mark Forrest strike in a 1-0 victory at George School.

Senior Garrett Vail scored twice in Solebury School's 4-0 win at Abington Friends. Dakota Morrow needed four saves to earn the shutout.

Boys' Basketball

Robert Morris recruit Britton Lee has transferred to Northeast from Roman Catholic.

The 5-foot-10 senior guard made an oral commitment to the Colonials in May. They had given him his first offer when he was a sophomore.

Last season, Lee averaged 11 points and helped lead Roman to the semifinals of the Catholic League playoffs. Northeast, close to Lee's home, lost in the opening round of last season's Public League playoffs.

Abington senior guard Anthony Durham II received offers from St. Bonaventure and St. Francis (Pa.) on Tuesday, according to his AAU coach, Richard Guillen.

Durham, a 6-3 point guard, averaged 17.8 points in last season's District 1 Class AAAA playoffs. He helped 11th-seeded Abington to the semifinals before it fell to Lower Merion.
