posted Oct 3, 2014, 1:31 PM by Thomas Pfennigwerth

ORSA U-10  Kerr defeated Meadville Black on Sunday, September 28, 2014.  The final score was 5 – 1 with goals by Gage Haniwalt, Quinn Ritchey, and Brady Umbenhaur.

ORSA Kerr came out on the winning end of their soccer match against Meadville Black this past Sunday. The first half was dominated by the ORSA team.  The first two goals were scored by the combination of Haniwalt and Nathan Pfennigwerth with Haniwalt putting the ball home twice off of two crisply centered assist passes.  The third goal of the half was scored by Quinn Ritchey unassisted on a steal followed by a drive up the middle of the Meadville defense straight to the net. The half ended with Kerr's team up 3–0.  Solid defense was provided by Ben Yard, Caleb Prettyman and Johnathan Leccia turning away the few shots on goal that he faced.

The second half opened with a goal by Brady Umbenhaur assisted by Quinn Ritchey along with a flurry of shots put on goal by Ethan Umbenhaur, Caleb Prettyman and Carson Kerr.  The Umbenhaur boys used their "Wonder Twin Powers" to aggressively push the ball upfield, each seeming to know where the  other was going to be.  Meadville was able to punch one goal into the back of the net in a moment of weakness by the ORSA defense.  In the second half, Leccia gave way to Koben Parry who kept the slate clear from that point forward.  The aggressive defensive play of Pfennigwerth and Haniwalt kept their goalkeeper's jersey clean followed by several precisely played through balls into the offensive end. The final tally was obtained through an “own goal” that was scored by the other teams goalie. A hard shot by Quinn Ritchey was stopped by the goalkeeper but then dropped to the ground and accidentally kicked into the goal.  Through no lack of effort, Johnathan Leccia, Caleb Prettyman and Carson Kerr each had multiple shots that fell just wide of the goal or were soundly stopped by the opposing goaltender.

ORSA Kerr looks to extend their winning streak next week with an away game against Clarion white.
