On Tuesday against Albright College, goalkeeper Cole Catherman, of Selinsgrove, was perfect in stopping all six chances and Dylan Dailey, of East Stroudsburg, netted the lone goal on an assist by Copper Smith, of Carlisle, as the Wildcats won, 1-0, to even the series record at 1-1 and earn their first win of the season.

At Lancaster Bible College in its UE opener, Penn College lost, 5-0, to drop to 1-4-1 overall. LB led in shots on goal, 13-0, and corner kicks, 14-0.

Penn College led in shots on goal, 8-2, and in corner kicks, 8-2, and capitalized on goals by Kaelynn Sheetz, of Elizabethtown, and Wiley Egan, of Northumberland, for a 2-1 win at Lancaster Bible College, their first “W” of the season under new coach Ian Scheller. The Wildcats now are 1-4 overall.

Golf
Sophomore transfer Peyton Mussina, of Montoursville, carded a 6-over-par 77 to tie for 10th in leading the Wildcats to an eighth-place finish in a 12-team field Wednesday in the team’s season opener in the Elizabethtown College Fall Invitational at Hershey Country Club East.

Right back in action over the weekend in the Mountain Valley Classic hosted by Penn State Altoona, Penn College was in second place among 13 teams after the first day of competition on Friday with three players scoring in the 70s, led by Trevor Keaton, of Worcester, who shot a 3-over 75 and was tied for sixth.

Wrapping up tournament play on Saturday, Mussina closed out his weekend with a 74 on the par 72, 6,748-yard Summit Country Club course, following a 78 on the par 72, 6,936-yard Sinking Valley Country Club course on Friday, for a 152 total and tie for fourth place.
