HALIFAX - Barely more than 12 hours after playing a double-overtime tie at East Juniata, Greenwood's boys soccer team was on the road again for a Saturday morning tilt against Halifax.
The Wildcats built an early lead, which proved necessary - Halifax scored twice in the second to make a game of it before Greenwood made it a 4-2 final in the Tri-Valley League contest.
"Halifax is a decent team - they're young," said Greenwood coach Tom Magill, who said his squad basically backed off once it had a 3-0 lead - and missed plenty of opportunities.
"We missed some 'how can you not score' kind of things," Magill said. "We don't get intense at moments where we need to get intense."
Tyler Fegley scored twice in the win and Hunter Wirth had a goal and an assist. Seth Ferguson had a pair of helpers.

Juniata 2, Millersburg 1
MILLERSBURG - Jose Lopez scored one goal and helped on another as the Juniata boys moved back to .500 with a Tri-Valley League soccer win over Millersburg Saturday, 2-1.
The Indians scored both of their goals in the first half. Millersburg found success on one of its two shots on goal, in the 49th minute of play, but that was it.
Juniata (2-2-1) hosts Line Mountain Wednesday.
Belleville Mennonite 2, Huntingdon 2 (OT)
BELLEVILLE - A trip in the box with fewer than three minutes to play gave Huntingdon the opportunity it needed to even the score, and Belleville Mennonite couldn't change that in two overtime periods, leading to a 2-2 tie.
"The final five minutes we were unorganized and that's what resulted in the PK," Belleville Mennonite coach Brian Renno explained. "Finalize that one clear and get possession back and we'd be home free."
After Huntingdon got the first score, Andrew Miller tickled the twine twice - once in each period - to give the Thunder a lead late in the second half.
"The first goal was a defensive breakdown," Renno said.
Belleville Mennonite (1-3-1) travels to Bald Eagle Area today.
Penn Manor 5, East Juniata 0
MILLERSVILLE - Rachel Suter had two goals and three assists as East Juniata's success streak came to an end Saturday in a non-league loss to Penn Manor.
It was a reunion, of sorts - Penn Manor coach Matt Soto used to tackle the Tigers when he was at Middleburg in the 1990s.
In an example of how potent the Penn Manor offense is, East Juniata goalie Lydia Strawser repelled 18 shots, more than triple the number that got past her.
East Juniata (3-1) heads to Lewisburg today.
