With three games played this week, the boys soccer team at Tunkhannock didn’t have much time to regroup, and lost all three.

At Holy Redeemer, Mark Atherton, John Kuderka and Connor Kane scored goals for the victorious Royals Monday. Shane Macko scored for the Tigers with an assist from Braiden Jerome to tie the score at half.

Logan Barbini turned away ten of the 13 shots he saw.

Thursday at home, Tanner Nilon of the Wolfpack scored goals that tied the match, 1-1 and 2-2, before adding two more scores, finishing with four goals to lead Wilkes-Barre Area past Tunkhannock, 6-2.

Owen Stretch opened the scoring in the game with the only goal in the first frame, and Macko scored for the Tigers with a helper credited to Tyler Pietrowski.

Barbini and Max Shelhamer shared duties in net, recording 9 and 5 saves, respectively.

Friday closed out the week, as Lake-Lehman came to the Roslund soccer fields at the Primary Center.

Pietrowski scored on a penalty kick in the second half, and Macko followed up with a goal off the foot of Jerome in the 52th minute.

The Tigers host Wyoming Seminary today and Hanover on Friday.
