PSNK soccer team falls

Penn State New Kensington's soccer team drove a long way to suffer a season-ending loss.

The sixth-seeded Lions fell behind early and never recovered in a 8-0 loss at No. 3 Penn State Brandywine in the first round of the Penn State University Athletic Conference playoffs.

PSNK (6-7) was making its fourth straight postseason appearance. The Lions dressed only 13 players, and sophomore defender Casey Cavanaugh did not play because of an injury.

“Today we traveled light (because) we have quite a few guys missing,” PSNK coach Jordan Valentine said. “We started off well for the first 15 minutes. ... It was just quite a few individual errors that cost us, things that we don't normally do. We created a lot more chances in the second half, but we couldn't get the ball in the back of the net.”
