Pine Valley tops NC in soccer, 2-1

SOUTH DAYTON — The Pine Valley Panthers (7-4, 6-2) won a key CCAA Central boys soccer game with the North Collins Eagles (6-6-1, 5-3) on Monday.

After a scoreless first half, the visitors got on the board 7:10 into the second half when Tyler Jimerson scored an unassisted goal. But Zack Mansfield tied the game for Pine Valley just over a minute later, with Richard Johnston picking up the assist.

Dana Jenkins provided the game-winning goal in the 59th minute. Dawson Chase recorded an assist on the play.

“They went up, and my team responded really well,” Panthers coach Dave Pihlblad said. “We got a goal a minute 30 (seconds) after them, then kept up the pressure and got another one soon after that. It was a good win for my team, finding a way to win in the second half.”

Each goalie made three saves: Anthony Novoa for the Eagles, Makiah Snyder for Pine Valley.

Pine Valley’s next game is at Westfield on Wednesday. North Collins travels to Chautauqua Lake that day.
