Quaker takes the lead again two minutes after Deer Lakes equalizes.
A long distance strike from about 25 yards!
9:20 – GOAL | 60′ – DEER LAKES – Michael Sullivan
Michael Sullivan from close range, with clinical finish. Terrific work up the right end line by Ryan Rodgers shaking off QV defender, and providing the assist. We’re now deadlocked, 2-2. 60′

6:00 – Greensburg CC fans remain — as the boys now kickoff (on time!) against their section rivals, Winchester Thurston.
