SCRANTON - The Delaware Valley High School boys’ soccer team made DV history in claiming the district II title last Thursday at Scranton’s Memorial Stadium. After an 80 minute match against Wyoming Valley West in the district finals, the Warriors emerged on top on the long end of a close 3-2 tally. The first half of the game was dominated by the Warriors. Pat Smith scored two goals; both were assisted by Brad Houseknecht. Keith Fritschie, with and assist from Anthon Testinto, scored the eventual game winner near the end of the first half. Coming out of halftime with a score of 3-0, Wyoming Valley West made a comeback and rallied for two goals. With minutes left in the game, and great anxiety showing among both the coaches and players, Delaware Valley held them off. The team traveled home with medals in hand. They were eventually greeted with a caravan of cars whose horns were honking as proud parents held up posters upon their arrival. Their victory marks the first time any DV soccer team has taken the district two title. The team moved on to play Warwick in the state quarter-finals Tuesday in Scranton, but lost, 7-2.
