Knights leap Leopards

 Middletown celebrated Senior Night in style with a 3-0 win over visiting Smithsburg.  The win is the Knights' seventh in a row.

After several early chances, MHS finally got on the board courtesy of a hustle play by senior Scott McMunn following up a saved Zach Fontenot shot.  1-0!

It was yet more smart play by senior Caleb Demas following up another Fontenot saved shot that doubled the Knights' lead.  Two rebound goals, 2-0!

In the second half, this time Dylan Smith (take that Smithsburg) helped finish off the match by setting up Fontenot.  The 3-0 win was yet another shutout for the defense which included play from both goalkeepers, David Burgenson and senior Shane Falcinelli, as well as a backline that included, among others, Austin Funkhouser and seniors Matt Nickols, Luke Verdi and John Remsberg.

As the final whistle blew, the victory was a well-deserved effort from all the guys and including our 11 seniors.  Good luck against Urbana on Thursday!
