In a rematch of last year's Class AA boys soccer quarterfinals, Lewisburg defeated Wellsboro 6-0 on Tuesday, October 29, in the Class AA semi-finals at Balls Mills.
"We knew what we were facing heading into the match," head coach Todd Fitch said. "The boys went 'all in' versus the likely AA state champions. What a great opportunity for us to compete and learn from one of the best."
