TOWAMENCIN- With little breathing room atop the Suburban One Continental Conference, the North Penn Knights soccer team knows that every conference game looms large, and for Central Bucks West, they know every game is a chance to stay in the conference hunt.

On Wednesday, the Bucks (5-5-2 overall) defeated the North Penn Knights (8-3 overall) in a fast paced game where both teams stayed competitively in it until the ending buzzer, leaving three teams with just two conference losses, as the Knights, Bucks and CB East all find themselves tied in the loss column.  East holds a point advantage over North Penn in the standings at 6-2-1. The Knights sit at 6-2 while the Bucks are now 4-2-2 and very much alive.

In the 1-0 CB West win, the Bucks set the tone of the game early by being the first on the scoreboard thanks to a goal scored by senior Dominick Bianchini (13:48).

“I think CB West played a very good game. The goal was a great strike in the upper corner; it was good soccer.” said Paul Duddy, Head Coach of North Penn Men’s Soccer.

Despite West’s early goal by Bianchini in the first quarter, the Knights hung in strongly as they tried to answer back. Aggressive defensive pressure put on by senior goal-keeper Bobby Dean, senior Noah Kwortnik, and junior Terryn Aaron kept the Bucks from many scoring opportunities. North Penn was able to keep more possession of the ball thanks to the solid efforts of seniors Mike Kohler, Nate Baxter, and Nick Tercheck. After several shots on goal, the Knights were unable to score before the half was over, leaving them down 1-0 to CB West.

In the second half, the Knights knew they were still in the game, and they turned their play up another notch.

“We kept the ball on their half a lot, we kept possession, and we pressed really hard on them” said Baxter.

However, North Penn’s extra efforts were not enough this time as the Bucks kept them off the scoreboard.

“We knew we had to get one goal back, so we pressed hard. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to find the net.” said Tercheck.

The Knights will face William Tennent (4-6-2; 2-4-1) on Friday, October 7th for another Suburban One Continental Conference game.
