LEBANON — When Lewisburg advanced to the PIAA Class 2A girls soccer final last season, the Green Dragons’ road to Hershey started with them advancing past Eastern Lebanon County in a shootout.

The Green Dragons faced ELCO in the first round again Tuesday, but unfortunately for Lewisburg, things went ELCO’s way this time.

Cassie Johnson scored in the first half, and the Raiders added two insurance goals in the second half to defeat Lewisburg 3-0.

The Green Dragons (16-6-1) got a pair of saves from Lauren Gross.
