Strong Vincent had its hands full at Veterans Stadium Thursday night as the Colonels took on Brashear out of District 8. The Colonels managed to take a 38-34 lead with a little over three minutes left on Jared Carlson’s fifth touchdown, but Ty Powe responded immediately with a 62-yard touchdown run. The Bulls then picked off Chris Starocci on fourth down to end Vincent’s final comeback attempt as Brashear won 41-38. Carlson finished with 116 yards on 21 carries, while Powe led Brashear with 199 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries.

•The Mercyhurst Prep boys soccer team picked up an important 1-0 double-overtime win over North East on Thursday. Alex Schroeck scored the game-winner with less than three minutes left in the second overtime to give Mercyhurst Prep control of Region 3. Patrick Frauenknecht had the assist on the goal, while Ben Forcier picked up the shutout in goal. Schroeck is only a sophomore but he is developing a knack for the big goal. He scored in overtime during the District 10 Class A semifinals last year to give the Lakers a 1-0 win over rival Fairview. Mercyhurst Prep will travel to Sewickley Academy on Saturday before a showdown with Fairview on Monday.

•The Harbor Creek boys soccer team keeps on winning. The Huskies improved to 11-0 with a 5-1 win over Girard on Thursday and Harbor Creek is just seven wins from a perfect season. Koltin Hammer had a had trick for the Huskies, while Eric Campbell added two goals. Harbor Creek will travel to East on Tuesday and host Fort LeBoeuf on Wednesday before a showdown at Cathedral Prep on Oct. 5. If the Huskies get by the Ramblers, 18-0-0 is a very real possibility.

•The Hickory girls soccer team keeps rolling at 9-1-0. The Hornets routed Warren JFK 10-0 on Thursday behind four goals from Sara Suler and three goals from Jackie White. Bella Spadafora added two goals and two assists for Hickory, which has won nine matches by at least five goals. The Hornets’ only blemish this season was a 2-1 overtime loss to Karns City.

•Cambridge Springs rebounded from a tough loss to Cochranton on Tuesday to sweep Youngsville in Region 2 girls volleyball action. Paige Wolfrom had 18 kills for the Blue Devils, while Jennae Shinsky had 10 kills and Mackenzie Turner had 32 assists. Cambridge Springs has found itself in almost a must-win situation in the second half of the season. District 10 took only four Class A teams last fall and right now, the Blue Devils would be on the outside looking in. West Middlesex and Cochranton lead the two Class A regions, while Lakeview and Sharpsville are tied for second place in Region 1 and Maplewood is in second place by itself in Region 2.

•The McDowell girls golf team wrapped up the Region 3 title on Thursday with a one-stroke win over Meadville. Ellen Eighmy and Lindsey Swanson each had rounds of 44 to lead the Trojans, while Claire Orr had a 45. Meadville will get another shot at McDowell in one week as the District 10 Class AAA team championships at Riverside Golf Club. The Trojans and Bulldogs will square off for the D-10 title and a spot in the western regional.
