ALTOONA AREA HIGH SCHOOL: 0
The Millionaire boys soccer team bounced back Saturday afternoon by defeating Altoona, 6-0.
Williamsport's attack was immediate as they quickly worked the ball up the pitch where senior captain Jimmy Pombor eluded the Altoona keeper and then easily put the ball in the back of the net just thirty-two seconds into the first half. With an early advantage, the Millionaires possessed the ball for longer periods of time and fifteen minutes later junior captain Owen Kaar slid a pass to Pombor for his second goal on the afternoon, giving Williamsport a two-goal lead at the break.
Williamsport began the second half focusing to secure a shut-out. Keeper Sam Radulski and his back line, only allowed a few shots on goal and Radulski managed those with ease. While the defensive played strongly, the Williamsport midfield and attack was busy, as the Millionaire midfielders refused to permit the Mountain Lions any easy access to their final third of the pitch. Six minutes into the second half, sophomore forward Connor Poole and Pombor worked a quick combination play to sophomore forward Angelo Casas to put Williamsport up by three. Three minutes later, Pombor placed a perfect pass to Casas for his second goal of the game. Half-way through the second half, Kaar dished out his second assist of the game when he fed junior Jett Johnson, who blasted a shot above the Altoona keeper's outstretched arms to put Williamsport up by five. Zach Lake added a late goal when he made a great diagonal run through the middle of the defensive cluster where Pombor slipped the ball through for Lake to drill his shot into the back of the net.
Williamsport is 5 and 2 on the season and travel to Selinsgrove Tuesday night.
