NTL BOYS' SOCCER: TROY WORKS THROUGH REBUILDING SEASON IN 2023
(2023-11-12)Northern Tier Sports Report
It was a tale of two seasons for Troy boys’ soccer, a rough start, but then a stronger finish that saw them make strides for next year.
The Trojans opened the year with an eight game losing streak, though they had one goal losses to Towanda (2-1), Elk Lake (3-2), and Blue Ridge (3-2), along with two goal losses to Athens (3-1), and NEB (3-1).
They broke the streak with a 2-1 win at home against playoff bound Galeton, then followed that up with a 2-2 tie against Sullivan County.
That was followed by a six game losing streak, though they were competitive against NEB (2-0), playoff team Williamson (3-1), and playoff team Montgomery (2-1).
They put everything together at the end of the season with a 6-0 win over Towanda.
They’ll definitely be some open spots next season as they graduate eight players, led by Brady Spalding, who ended his career with 54 goals and 23 assists.
However, they return key players Ethan Cole, Hart Houseknecht, keeper Timothy Hornung, and standout freshman, Gavin Lykon, who finished with four goals on the year.
