Also, similar to Thursday, Greensburg responded rather quickly. Less than 6 minutes later, Liam Krizman scored his first career goal off of a cross from Sage O’Mara. The Pirates and Patriots battled for the rest of the half to draw even 1-1.The second half was much of the same, with both teams getting good scoring chances, but playing even better defense. With around 8 minutes left, Union County scored to put the Patriots up 2-1. Unrelenting, Greensburg responded, and with 5 minutes left, Collin Springmeyer would score the equalizer to make sure the Pirates didn’t conceed another loss at home. It was Collin’s first goal of the season.The Pirates move to 0-1-1 on the season and will play Franklin County at home on Tuesday evening.   Courtesy of Pirates Coach Cody DeVolld.Greensburg Lady Pirates Soccer had their opening home game and came out with a tie, 1-1.Greensburg found the back of the goal early when Macy Smith took a shot that was barely blocked by the Patriots keeper. Emily Rosales finished the shot off to collect the point with only nine minutes off the clock. With 13 minutes left in the half, Union County answered with a goal. Greensburg Keeper, Ella Lowe, only had to negotiate two shots on goal in the first half while the opposing keeper saw six shots by your Lady Pirates. The low amount of shots by Union County can be contributed to the ball-handling skills of Alaina Nobbe and the speed of Hilary Ernstes playing defensive back positions. The second half was a battle to the end. No points were scored but the Lady Pirates attempted 6 shots. Rosales led the team with 4 shots. Smith and Sierra Huffman had 3 shots on goal. Emily Million and Natalie Kalinowski each had one.Courtesy of Pirates Coach Ryan Morlan.last_img
