Varsity Boys Soccer (4-6)
The Knights are playing extremely hard and despite going 1-2 in the last three game stretch, they had two of the most exciting games of the fall this past week.

The game was finally won by Ryan Parker 37 seconds into the second OT. The second contest was a back and forth affair that was tied 2-2 heading into overtime. The game was destined for a tie until Lower Moreland scored a goal with less than 5 seconds left in the second overtime.
