Soccer Fight For 55 Preview


Patrick Dunn, Sports Writer

Tonight, October 24th, the Falcons take on the Catamounts of Panther Creek in a huge Fight for 55 matchup. After the Falcons’ loss on Monday at Jordan, the race for the conference became much closer. Green Hope needs to win or tie tonight to secure the Tri-6 title.

The first time the rivals played each other this season Green Hope prevailed 3-0 on senior night. This time around it will be Panther Creek’s senior night. The game will be emotional, as the Catamounts will be looking for revenge in what will likely be their last home game.

The Falcons are led in scoring by senior Dylan Enseling, with 11 goals. Evan Ward is the assist leader on the team with 10. The boys are excited to get after it tonight. Jeff Kulp Jr. said he feels “ready to go”.

On the season the Falcons have been the more efficient offense, scoring almost 2.5 goals a game. On average the Catamounts score only 2 goals a game.

This Fight for 55 matchup might be the most important one of the year. Be sure to show your support for the boys at Panther Creek at 6:30.
