NTL BOYS SOCCER: NORTHEAST BRADFORD RIDES ROLLER COASTER IN 2022 SEASON
(2022-11-15)Northern Tier Sports Report
It was a tale of three seasons for NEB: a strong start, a deep funk, and then finishing high to go 7-11.
The Panthers won five of their first seven matches, including wins over Galeton (3-2), Troy (5-3, 4-3), North Penn-Liberty (5-3), and Towanda (5-2).
However, a 5-0 loss to Athens started a 9-game slide that they just couldn’t seem to break.
They lost 3-2 to Williamson in overtime, and led Wellsboro 2-0 at the half, only to fall 4-2.
After that, they were outscored 17-3 over their next three games.
They nearly upset Sullivan County, falling 4-3, but after a 9-3 loss to Tunkhannock, they dropped a 3-2 match to Towanda at home.
They would rebound, beating NP-L 4-3, then defeating Montgomery 3-1 on the road to finish strong.
They say good-bye to seniors Clayton Frasier, Isaac VanDeMark and NTL all-star Joe Stanton.
However, they return fellow all-stars Josh Stanton and Cesar Alvarez, along with keeper Andrew Beers, defender Brendan Allen, and freshman Brennin Thoman.
It was a fitting end to the season as freshmen Cody Strauss and Eddie Eastman scored their first career goals, momentum they hope carries over to next season.
