Plum­stead tops Faith in 2OTS

News-Herald (Perkasie, PA) - - OPINION -

Plum­stead Chris­tian had very few op­por­tu­ni­ties Fri­day in its Dis­trict One Class A sHPLfinDO PDWFKuS DJDLnsW top-seeded Faith Chris­tian at Christo­pher Dock.

But the Pan­thers took ad­van­tage when it counted.

Just 2:3V into the sec­ond over­time, Jeff Me­lan­son set up for a cor­ner kick. The se­nior lofted the ball to 10-yards away from the far post and se­nior de­fender Max Drake headed the ball past a stunned Faith keeper to give the Pan­thers a 1-0 vic­tory and a ticket into the Dis­trict One ti­tle game against New Hope-Sole­bury, a 1-0 win­ner over Christo­pher Dock in the night­cap.

The fa­vored Lions pretty much dom­i­nated play for the en­tire match, crank­ing out 15 shots to just six for Plum­sWHDd, fivH RI wKLFK FDPH dur­ing the sec­ond half when the Pan­thers were play­ing with the brisk wind whip­ping across the sta­dium.

Sam Bloxam, Dy­lan Papiernik and Cameron McDRnDOd HDFK firHd RII WKrHH shots for the Lions, but just one shot – a drive over the cross­bar by McDon­ald off a cross­ing pass from Papiernik DW 7:47 RI WKH firsW RvHrWLPH – had any real shot of get­ting past Plum­stead keeper Bran­don Klinger.
