Boys Soccer - GCC vs Jeannette
GCC Boys Soccer Rolls On with 9-0 Win over Jeannette
Five different Centurions put markers in the scorebook as Greensburg Central Catholic beat Jeannette 9-0 in a WPIAL Class A Section 2 contest on Thursday, September 24, at Greensburg Central Catholic High School in Carbon.
After nearly 15 minutes of scoreless play, Carlo Denis broke the ice to put the Centurions on the scoreboard. Two minutes later it was teammate Mason Fabean who found the back of the net to make it 2-0. The pair continued to alternate scoring goals for GCC until the score stood at 5-0, with Denis scoring a hat trick and Fabean sitting pretty with a pair of his own. Goals by Seth Skowronek and Jacob Gretz within the final ten minutes of the half rounded out the Centurions 7-0 lead at halftime.
The scoring pace slowed in the second half as GCC's Jack Cryblskey and Owen Cryblskey notched the final two scores of the game. But the second half didn't get any easier for the Jeannette offense as they failed to make their mark on the scoreboard before the final horn sounded.
Centurions goalkeeper Max House recorded the shutout while virtually unchallenged all game as the Jayhawks struggled to break through the Centurions defense. Jeannette sophomore goalkeeper Mitchell Steele had an active game in net against the top-ranked GCC offense, including facing two penalty kick goals, yet he had several key saves to his credit.
GCC (4-0-0) is back in action on 9/29 when they will host perennial rival Winchester Thurston in a battle of unbeatens. Jeannette (1-3-0) will be home to face Geibel Catholic on 9/28.
