The Kane boysâ€™ soccer team honored the teamsâ€™ six seniors prior to Saturday afternoonâ€™s game with Keystone. The Wolves sent the Senior Recognition crowd home happy with a 6-1 win over the Panthers.
Kaneâ€™s offense had a number of good opportunities to score early, but the shots were either stopped by the Keystone goalie or missed wide. Senior Chris Cummings got the home team on the scoreboard about 10 minutes in when the senior stepped in front of a goal kick, slipped, somehow regained his balance and drilled the ball by the goalie for the 1-0 lead.
Senior kicker Dillon Mattis drilled a clutch field goal with eight seconds left in the game to lift the Kane Wolves to a thrilling 9-7 win over the Brockway Rovers Friday night at Paul R Miller Stadium.
The Wolvesâ€™ homecoming game began in a downpour, and both teams struggled to move the ball. Brockway received the opening kick and moved backwards a few yards before punting to the home team. Kane returned the favor as a fumbled snap on second down led to a three-and-out.
BROOKVILLE â€“ "If I had to sum up our match in a word, it would be 'perseverance,'" said Kane head varsity volleyball coach Judy Kessler following the team's road win over Brookville. "The girls never gave up on the match against the Brookville RaidersÂ from beginning to end. We had leads that we kept and leads we gave away but we battled all night long for this win. Sometimes when you get in the hole two games, there's no getting out of it.
The Kane Wolves look to rebound from last weekâ€™s 21-20 loss to the Ridgway Elkers tonight when they take on the Brockway Rovers. A battle of 4-1 teams would always be a big game but throw in the mix that it is the Wolvesâ€™ Homecoming game, and that raises the stakes even more.
The Rovers opened up their season with lopsided wins over Smethport, Coudersport and Cameron County before ending their run against the AML North with a hard-fought 33-13 win over Otto-Eldred. Last week, coach Frank Zoccoâ€™s team had their record blemished with a 28-17 loss to AAA Clearfield.
The St. Marys Area Lady Dutch soccer team handed the Kane Lady Wolves a 3-0 setback Thursday afternoon at the SMAHS soccer field.

"Overall we played a good possession game today," said St. Marys coach Eric Bridges.
"Our reserves played aggressively and helped us to keep possession of the ball," said Bridges.
"Kane impressed me with their 80 minutes of play. We were forced to fight hard for the 50/50 balls," added Bridges.
The Coudersport Falcons came to town on Thursday afternoon and handed the Kane boysâ€™ soccer team a 3-0 loss on the Wolvesâ€™ home field. Coach Ernie Chamberlainâ€™s Wolves played well, but just couldnâ€™t find the back of the net despite more than a dozen shots on goal.
Kaneâ€™s best chance of scoring early on came when goalie Michael Butterfield made a save and punted the ball way downfield where teammate Chris Cummings caught up to it and redirected it towards the goal. Falcons goalie Michael Chambers batted it away and scooped up the rebound before Cummings could knock it home.
