G-A roundup: Blue Devil boys soccer blanks JB

Greencastle 5, James Buchanan 0: Adam Murr and Theo-Gerald Oreste each scored twice to carry the Blue Devils over the Rockets in a Mid Penn Colonial game Saturday evening.

Oreste also had two assists and Murr had one. Nathan Kirkwood tallied the other goal for G-A (4-1-1, 4-1-1 MPC), and had an assist, and Cale Stover also provided a helper. Greencastle led only 1-0 at halftime, but the offense got busy and goalkeeper Ryland Zimmerman made 2 saves for the shutout.

JB keeper Borden Green made 9 saves.

Blue Devil coach Aric Bruner said, “I thought today was a very well-rounded effort by the boys. We certainly left a few goals out there, but I was very pleased with the overall team focus on some of our talking points this week. We are having to force some players into some positions they aren’t very comfortable (due to injuries) with and are adapting pretty well.”

West Perry 4, Greencastle 2: The Mustangs claimed a 3-0 lead, then withstood a comeback effort by the Blue Devils for a Mid Penn Colonial win Friday afternoon.

Goals by Molly Zimmerman, Alivia Ellenberger and Jaela Johnson put West Perry ahead early in the third quarter. But two goals by Olivia Winslow — assisted by Kate Eberhardt and Sydney Orndorff — brought Greencastle (2-5) within a goal.

Julie Loy’s fourth-quarter score added to the Mustangs’ total.
