Boys Soccer - Latrobe vs Norwin
Norwin Boys Break Stalemate in 79th Minute to Beat Latrobe
For 78 minutes, Latrobe and Norwin battled to a stalemate in a WPIAL Class 4A Section 3 boys soccer game that looked destined for overtime. But a pair of Norwin goals in the final two minutes lifted the Knights to a 2-0 victory over the host Wildcats in a hard-fought matchup on Monday, October 11, at Rossi Field in Unity Township.
Both teams had their opportunities throughout the game, but solid defense and goalkeeping kept the score knotted at zero until 1:54 remained in the second half. That's when Daniel Maddock, on a feed from Caleb Yuricha, headed a shot past Latrobe keeper Tanner Popella at point blank range for the game winner.
Yuricha booted an insurance goal for the Knights as the game clock expired, which the officials deemed to be good, and a well-played game by both teams went into the books as a 2-0 Norwin win. Senior Andrew Yanez picked up the clean sheet for Norwin between the pipes.
Norwin maintained their perfect conference record of 11-0-0 and improved overall to 12-1-1. They travel to rival Penn-Trafford for their final conference matchup on 10/13. Latrobe falls to 4-7-0 in conference and 4-9-0 overall, and finishes their conference schedule at Hempfield on 10/13.
