Lady Wildcats roll past Philipsburg
PHILIPSBURG - After tying with Lewistown Tuesday, the Central Mountain girls' soccer team scored a pair of goals in a 2-0 victory over Philipsburg-Osecola Thursday.
Sam Lofton netted the Lady 'Cats tallies, with Jackie Rodabaugh assisting on the first and Sara Hawksworth on the second.
CM held the Lady Mounties shotless in the game, while the Lady 'Cats took 20 shots of their own.
The game last night was CM's third in four days.
"There really is no time to rest or practice in weeks like this," Lady Wildcat head coach Ryan Veltri said. "Plus the field we were playing on made things difficult. But, Philipsburg made it hard by packing in their defense. Kudos to the girls on getting another win, though. Teams are playing us hard now because they have nothing left to lose. We've built ourselves a fine season so far."
Central Mountain (13-0-1) will travel to Penns Valley Saturday.

BEA volleyball bounces back
LEWISTOWN - After a tough loss at Central in its last match, Bald Eagle Area volleyball bounced back with a 3-0 win over Lewistown Thursday night.
Scores from the match were 25-13, 25-18 and 25-22.
Sophomore Kayla Confer was big in the match, leading the team with 14 kills and three digs, while Danielle Reese added 12. Kendra Fetzer had 43 assists, while Katelyn Miller had three blocks.
Cortney Switzer, Chelsey Skripek and Chelsea Robinson all had two aces, while Megan Shaw and Meghan Granite each had two blocks.
"It was nice to see Kayla Confer have a big game," BEA head coach Larry Campbell said. "Her sister had a pretty nice career here, and she's starting to develop her game as a sophomore. The biggest thing I told the girls is we can't just walk through games and beat the big teams. But it's nice to see some of these younger girls starting to develop as players."
With five games left until the district playoffs, BEA is 10-3 and will host Penns Valley on Tuesday.
In the JV match, BEA lost 2-0.
BEA boys lose at Lewistown
LEWISTOWN - Caton Deitweiler and Thomas Walters each netted two goals in the first half as Lewistown beat Bald Eagle Area, 4-0, in Mountain League boys' soccer.
The Panthers, which improve to 10-1-2, outshot BEA 13-6.
In goal, BEA keeper Wes Milliron had eight saves.
"We really didn't show up to play until the second half," BEA head coach Jason Bair said. "We just didn't step to the ball because each one of their goals was unassisted. If we could have played the way we did in the second half for the whole game, it would have been 0-0."
BEA falls to 5-9 and will travel to Bellefonte on Monday.

CM freshmen lose on the road in Billtown
