YOUNGSVILLE, Pa. – Warren avenged an early-season loss with a 6-0 win over Franklin in a key Region 4 match on Thursday.
The Knights topped the Dragons, 4-2, on Sept. 6. Warren wasted little time setting the tone for this match as Logan Crissey scored two of his three goals in the first five minutes.
Crissey’s hat trick was his second in as many games. Gavin Rex had two goals and an assist, and Jack Darling had a goal off a corner kick. Parks Ordiway had four assists.
“Mark Lynds’ play in the midfield was a real difference maker and Quinn Norris and Jack Darling didn’t allow one of the most talented players in the region, Gage Haniwalt, any possession on the ball,” Warren coach Denny Flatt said. “Total team effort, really proud of the boys. A lot of players filled in to contribute in the final minutes.”
Will Nebinski recorded five saves for the shutout.
“(The) talented back line of Corban Reinard, Chase Sitler, Ethan Best, and Dakota Sliter shut down all attacks and helped Will Nebinski,” Warren assistant coach Chris Darling said. “Franklin is a quality program. They have become a rival and a match we look forward to playing.”
Warren’s sixth straight win pushed its season record to 7-3, and the Dragons are 7-1 in region play.
Warren will host Saegertown on Tuesday.
