The highlight of the night was when Brazilian exchange student Ana Gomes scored her first soccer goal ever off a Morgan Ferguson assist in NTL girls' soccer action Saturday.

"She has never played soccer before," remarked Athens coach Duane Hafer. "The whole team was so excited that she was able to score, it was exciting for us."

Her goal came at the 26:16 mark of the second half.

The Wildcats started off the scoring with two goals inside the first minute.

Galeton 2, Northern Potter 1

The Galeton Tigers were rude guests at the Northern Potter Panthers homecoming, beating the Panthers by a 2-1 score.

The Tigers got an own goal when Jon Parsell's corner kick was misdirected into the Northern Potter net by a Panther defender only 2:04 into the contest.

Jake Batterson got credit for the goal.

"Galeton controlled the ball most of the first half with the play of Shuemaker, Emilio Martinez, and Jordan Patterson, while defender Hunter Rachielle seemed to be everywhere thwarting any Panther attack," said Northern Potter coach Mike Morgan.

Northern Potter finally struck in the second half, getting an odd goal of its own. The Panthers were awarded a free kick that Caden Hess shot. The ball bounced around in the 18 yard area and somehow crossed the goal line knotting the score at one.

Galeton's Tyler Dugan scored the game winner with about six minutes remaining in the contest on a pretty give-and-go play with Batterson just inside the Panther 18 yard box.

Galeton out shot Northern Potter 11-4 and had the edge in corner kicks 5-0.

JC Sunderlin had four saves in net for the Tigers while Frank Gardner had eight saves for Northern Potter.

Galeton (4-4) will host Athens Monday while Northern Potter (1-6) will welcome Liberty.
