JB, Potter leave Indians with nothing

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Kris Potter's goal with 18:52 remaining and the fourth shutout of the season for goalie Ryan Lum added up to a 1-0 victory for James Buchanan over Waynesboro Monday in Mid-Penn Conference boys soccer action.

"It was a big win for us after losing two games over the weekend," Potter said. "We have four games this week, hopefully this will get us started on a winning streak."

Both teams had numerous opportunities during the physical contest but the James Buchanan goalkeeper and rival goalie Michael Mowen denied shots and matched each other in a scoreless duel for more than 61 minutes.

Potter finally put James Buchanan on the scoreboard when he chipped a ball over Mowen's head for his sixth goal of the season.


"It was a great game, hard fought," said James Buchanan coach Michael Dent. "We're 4-3 now, all the wins have been shutouts. I hope this gives us some momentum."

Dent was impressed by the game-winning goal.

The Rockets pressured Mowen in goal but the ball eventually came to senior sweeper Brett Hunsberger, who quickly fed it to Potter for the winning score.

"We had a tough weekend and it's good to bounce back," Lum said. "I wasn't nervous with the scoreless tie or the one-goal lead, I just tried to defend the goal and play as well as possible."

And Dent was pleased with the overall effort.

"It was a well-played physical game and both teams had opportunities," Dent said. "I was pleased with the win, especially our defensive effort."

Waynesboro remained winless on the season.
