Boys Soccer - Franklin Regional vs West Mifflin (Senior Recognition)
Franklin Regional Boys Soccer Celebrates Senior Night with 9-0 Win over West Mifflin
Junior Anthony DiFalco honored his senior teammates with a three-goal performance, and senior goal keeper Gianni Diacopoulos recorded his second clean sheet of the young season, as Franklin Regional beat West Mifflin 9-0 on Senior Recognition night, Saturday, September 19, at Panther Stadium.
DiFalco scored the game winning goal for the Panthers just one minute into the match. They doubled their lead 14 minutes later when a crowd of Panthers around West Mifflin netminder Flynn McCracken led to a mishandled ball which found its way into the Titans net. DiFalco made it 3-0 to close out the first half scoring with his second marker of the night eight minutes before the horn sounded for intermission.
DiFalco didn't wait long to record his hat trick goal, finding the Titans' net within two minutes of the second half kickoff. Then the Panthers' seniors took over, as Blake Cooper and Zach Lorenz alternated on a pair of goals each. Sophomore Andrew Carrick added the final goal of the match to put the cherry on top of Franklin Regional's third win of the season. The Panthers have recorded 31 goals versus one goal given up in their first three games.
Prior to the game the Panthers recognized seniors Blake Cooper, Gianni Diacopoulos, Isaac Gamwo, Zachary Johnston, Cole Kaforey, Luke Kimmich, Zach Lorenz, and Jake Sciorilli.
Both teams are back in action on Monday. Franklin Regional (3-0-0) travels to Plum, while West Mifflin (1-2-0) visits McKeesport.
