As the names of eight Central Bucks South seniors were announced from the loudspeakers just before Wednesday night's Suburban One Continental boys' soccer matchup, Central Bucks East never diverted from its warm-up routine, seemingly ignoring the fanfare in Titan Stadium.
With their composure intact, the Patriots (13-3, 11-2) stole a come-from-behind, 2-1 overtime victory to clinch their fifth league title in six years.
East coach Mike Gorni said this year's championship is the most gratifying accomplishment of his career.
"We won 10 straight games battling this schedule of two and three games a week," Gorni said. "I'm really proud. It has not been easy, but it's been really exciting."
