Marissa Panasiti continued to dominate the Mountain League with another multi-goal game yesterday, this one against Bald Eagle Area, taking her total on the season up to sixteen goals through eight games. That’s an impressive two goals per game average.

The Tyrone/Bellwood-Antis girls’ co-op soccer team defeated the Bald Eagle Lady Eagles by a score of 6-1 at Bald Eagle’s beautiful soccer complex. Luckily, Tyrone had a previous game on turf to get mentally and physically prepared for the speed of the game.

Marissa Panasiti recorded a hat-trick to lead the girls to a 5-3 record in the win/loss column.

“We played as a team,” said Panasiti. “We kept possession and capitalized when we needed too.”

Freshman Riley D’Angelo added two more goals to secure the victory.

“Marissa and our other striker were making great runs,” said D’Angelo regarding Tyrone’s offensive outburst. “We all connected very well and strung together passes, creating scoring chances. We converted on these scoring chances, securing a well-earned victory.”

The next girls’ game will be next Monday against West Branch, a team which they destroyed 10-0 the first game of the season.
