Con­estoga

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS -

“I think they play good soc­cer, and that forces the other team to play good soc­cer, too, or you’re not go­ing to be able to do any­thing,” Weir said. “Hope­fully we can learn from what just hap­pened to­day and try to go for­ward.”

Pastva scored twice, his 59th-minute tally ef­fec­tively break­ing the Jaguars’ back, tak­ing on two de­fend­ers and clip­ping a shot off goalie Tyler Tracy that caught the in­side of the post and trick­led in, Mauro get­ting the as­sist.

Lo­gan Schwartz added a goal 10 min­utes later, turn­ing a pair of de­fend­ers in­side and out, then Rossi volleyed a shot into the side-net­ting as the horn sounded at the end of the game.

Con­estoga pre­sents an im­por­tant mea­sur­ing stick for Gar­net Val­ley, in an im­pres­sive sea­son that has slumped to a three-game skid. With just one league loss com­ing in, hav­ing fallen to fel­low ti­tle con­tender Lower Me­rion, Thurs­day pre­sented a chance for the Jags to eke back into the ti­tle pic­ture.

In­stead, it’s a les­son of what needs to be fixed go­ing for­ward.

“We were look­ing to get any re­sult against this team,” Weir said. “We knew this team was go­ing to be good, but we wanted to come out and play them straight up. … It’s frus­trat­ing.”
