It was the seventh straight win for Greencastle (8-1).
Cedar Cliff 2, Greencastle-Antrim 0: The Colts got off to a fabulous start, with two goals in the game’s first five minutes, including a penalty kick, but the Blue Devils played them closer the rest of the non-league game at Kaley Field on Thursday night.
“Outside of the first five minutes of the game, I was pretty pleased with how we played the game,” G-A coach Aric Bruner said. “Obviously, we need to start putting the ball in the back of the net. I believe in these boys and can’t wait to see how we can turn it around next week to start the second half of our schedule.”
