Knight girls clinch tie for MVAL soccer title
By ADELINE STAEBLER / Staff Correspondent
WILLIAMSPORT - Middletown girls soccer coach John Miller said he thinks that his team's best defense is their offense.
The Knights proved Miller's theory Friday when they shut out Williamsport in a 4-0 Monocacy Valley Athletic League win.
With the win, Middletown (10-0, 7-0) clinches no worse than a tie for the conference title.
Middletown scored two goals in the first five minutes of the game to leap ahead. They then took control of the ball and kept control for the better part of the game.
"(Middletown) is able to control the ball on the ground and in the air. They're an exceptionally good volley team," Williamsport coach John Weimer said.
Three and a half minutes into the game Lainey Nichols had an unassisted goal. Moments later Megan Durant scored for the Knights. Trista Haupt had the assist.
