BOYS SOCCER

LEWISBURG -- With Lewisburg clinging onto a one-goal lead, Max Reed scored at just the right time to give the Green Dragons some much-needed insurance.

Reed scored the game's decisive goal with 1 minute, 13 seconds left in the game as Lewisburg beat Midd-West 3-2 in a Heartland-I contest Thursday.

The goal turned out to be huge as the Mustangs (8-7 overall) got back to within one as Jake Keister scored off a Devaughn Johns assist with 31 seconds remaining in regulation.

"It was a great game and there was a lot of energy," said Lewisburg coach Skip Kratzer. "The Midd-West goalie (Austin Hockenbrock) did a great job and I thought our defense played well today."

Reed finished with two goals and Nick Janesh also scored for Lewisburg (13-2-1, 9-2-1 HAC-I).

Colton Keister scored Midd-West's first goal off a Tyler Arbogast corner kick. Hockenbrock also finished with eight saves for the Mustangs.

ALMEDIA -- The Indians were out-gunned in the game, but Ryan Rompolski's penalty kick in the 79th minute tied the contest before it ended in a deadlock. Matt Gass also scored for Shamokin (9-5-1, 6-4-1 HAC-I), which trailed 2-0 at the half.
