Terry McCaulley

Alex Taylor and the Tyrone/Bellwood-Antis soccer team will play in the District 6 semifinals tonight against Bellefonte.

The Tyrone/Bellwood-Antis co-op boys soccer team is the number 4 seed in the District 6 3A playoffs. The Eagles are in the semifinal round and take on top seeded Bellefonte on tonight. 

Bellefonte has been on a roll this season, scoring a lot of goals and playing tough defense all year. Bellefonte hosts an impressive record of 12-1. Tyrone will have to play their best game of the year to knock off the Red Raiders.

Bellefonte got the best of the Eagles earlier this year, beating them by a score of 8-3.

Tyrone is looking to make their third straight district championship appearance with a win in this game. Last year Tyrone lost to Bellefonte in the district championship 2-1. 

Tyrone comes into this game as the underdogs, but they are very capable of pulling off the win. The Eagles have a lot of experienced players who are used to playing in big games.

The winner of this game will play either Hollidaysburg or Penn Cambria in the district championship.
