THE SKINNY STORY

THE LEADERS
Khaled Abuhantash (Mililani, Hawaii/North Harford [Md.]) was one of three different goal scorers.
Nick Starr (York, Pa./Central York) staked the Green Terror to the first-half lead.
Greysen Brockbank (Newville, Pa./Big Spring) capped the scoring on the day.

FOR THE FOES
• Wyatt Page broke up the shutout in the 80th minute for the Eagles.

THE REST OF THE STORY
Brooks Benassi (Towson, Md./Towson) played a ball through the midfield to Nick Starr, who finished from distance for a 1-0 lead just 10:44 into the game.
• An own goal in the 64th minute stretched the lead to 2-0.
• Wyatt Page finished from the top of the box into the lower-left corner to cut the deficit to 2-1 with just over 10 minutes to play.
• On a ball that made its way through the box from the endline on the right side, Khaled Abuhantash collected and volleyed the ball into the top-left to restore the two-goal lead.
Drake Pew (York, Pa./Dallastown Area) knocked a give-and-go right back to Greysen Brockbank, who was able to fire from the top of the box past the keeper for the final margin in the 89th minute.

THE INSIDE STORY
• It was Brooks Benassi's first collegiate point.
• Benassi became the 15th different Green Terror player to register a point this season.
