ALTOONA - Two Huskies saw their singles season end on the tennis court Friday, when Alana Felton and Emily Hurlburt bowed out of the District 6 Class AAA singles tournament.
Hurlburt's was the longer day, as she defeated the No. 2 seed from Central Mountain in straight sets to advance to the second round. However, unfortunately for the Husky, she next ran into the No. 1 seed from Hollidaysburg, who quickly dispatched the Mifflin County athlete, 6-0, 6-0.
Teammate Felton had a shorter outing when the No. 2 seed from Hollidaysburg put her away in straight sets, 6-1, 6-1.
Coach Glenn Kyle was pleased with what he saw from the girls as they closed out their singles season.
"They played very well, and it was a good combination of the season for them," he said.
This week the two begin practice for the doubles tournament, which will be held in Altoona on Oct. 11.
Juniata 1, Oakland Catholic 0
MIFFLINTOWN - Christen Baubiltz's goal on a header with 3:45 left in the first half was the difference as Juniata picked up a 1-0 win over Oakland Catholic in a girls soccer game Friday.
The Indians came out on the right end of a very even defensive battle.
"It was two teams that mirrored each other," Juniata coach Brian Strawser said. "We seemed to be able to possess and keep the ball away from them."
One Oakland Catholic shot glanced off the post and landed outside the goal to help preserve the shutout.
"Shutouts have been few and far between for us," Strawser said. "I was happy for our defense. They didn't lose their discipline and were able to come out with the shutout."
Juniata improves to 8-5 on the season and will take the field next today at 10 a.m. against Halifax.
Belleville Mennonite 3, Forbes Road 2
BELLEVILLE - Belleville Mennonite let Forbes Road hang around in the second half, and it was anybody's game until Noah Anders stepped up on a feed from Andrew Miller to take the 3-1 lead in boys soccer action Friday.
Forbes Road did muster one more goal with just 4:30 left to play, but that rounded out the scoring in the 3-2 win for the Thunder.
"It was a little nail biting at times with the amount of shots we had on goal, we failed to finish a couple nice shots," Belleville Mennonite coach Brian Renno said, whose team recorded 28 shots to Forbes Road's 11.
"At times it got frustrating for our guys, so we allowed Forbes Road to hang around and make it a game," Renno continued.
The Thunder, which gave up both of its goals on corner kicks, had trouble at times marking up on defense, but goalkeeper Sammy Kauffman stood strong with six saves.
Miller and Austin Byler were responsible for Belleville Mennonite's first two goals.
Belleville Mennonite (8-3-1) hosts Juniata Monday.
Newport 8, Belleville Mennonite 0
BELLEVILLE - Emily Bohn and Alyscia Smith each scored two goals as Newport defeated Belleville Mennonite 8-0 in a field hockey contest Friday.
Belleville Mennonite faced an early deficit and had trouble generating scoring opportunities against Newport.
Belleville Mennonite will take the field on Monday at 4 p.m. when the Thunder hosts Forbes Road.
