WL-S beats Central for first time in boys soccer


For the first time in program history, the West Liberty-Salem boys soccer team defeated Springfield Catholic Central, 1-0, on a Neil Markin goal from an Ethan Cole assist. The two teams have been playing twice a year in the OHC since 2001. In that time, SCC has won two state championships.

The score was 0-0 at half. Markin’s goal came a few minutes after he scored the apparent go-ahead goal off an Ian Wolfe corner kick. However, that goal was called back due to a foul.

Elias Kirker-Napiorkowski had six saves in the net for the Tigers (3-1, 2-0).
