Homecoming 2014 – Wolves look to rebound

October 2, 2014

The Kane Wolves look to rebound from last week’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 Wolves’ 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 Zocco’s team had their record blemished with a 28-17 loss to AAA Clearfield.

The Coudersport Falcons came to town on Thursday afternoon and handed the Kane boys’ soccer team a 3-0 loss on the Wolves’ home field. Coach Ernie Chamberlain’s Wolves played well, but just couldn’t find the back of the net despite more than a dozen shots on goal.
Kane’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.
