Greencastle-Antrim 6, James Buchanan 0: The Rockets’ defense had a strong first half, but the Blue Devils exploded for six second-half goals to capture a Mid Penn Colonial game at JB’s soccer complex Thursday night.

G-A coach Aric Bruner said, “Credit James Buchanan — they came out very defensively strong in the first half. We weren’t playing up to our potential. The boys listened to halftime team talk and executed in the second half. I was very pleased with the way they finished the game.”

The goals for Greencastle (4-6-1, 3-4-1 MPC) were split between Cale Stover, Mitchell Lagoe and Theo Gerald-Oreste, each of whom tagged the back of the net twice.

Garrett Decker provided two assists, while Gerald-Oreste, Lagoe, Ewan Coy and Kyle Baker each had one. Gavin Davidson made 4 saves to earn a shutout.
