Sayre boys notch first win of yearSAYRE - The Redskins scored two first half goals to pick up a 2-1 win over Northeast Bradford for their first win of the season on Tuesday.

"I told the boys before the game to be aggressive and to go hard to the ball. They won the majority of the 50-50 balls and got off some excellent shots," Sayre coach Randy Rockwell said. "The defense of John Blackman, Michael Shaw, Alex Krall, Dominic Petrocco, Chris Keefer and Devin Kithcart played an outstanding game for us which helped us get some good offensive runs started. I am happy where we are as a team. After a very tough start to the season the boys have worked hard and they deserved this win I am proud of all of them."

Jordan Rockwell started the scoring at 30:27 of the first half and with 34 seconds left in the half Sam Wheeler found the net for the Redskins.

Jude Jampo scored with 12:50 left in the game for NEB to cut the deficit to 2-1, but that's as close as the game would get.

"I'm proud of how the boys responded to adversity tonight," Wellsboro coach John Shaffer said. "We scored three scrappy goals and then went down a man with 24 minutes still remaining in the match. The boys rallied together. Our depth really helped tonight.

"We pulled off some of our artists and had soldiers ready to defend and we saw the game out in a very professional manner. Great work by the back four tonight and our goalie. Jake Singer put himself in the right spots to score tonight."
