The Knights from Sterling High School were one of those teams that could have won some of those games that they should have early on in the season. When the week started, the boy’s soccer team was just one game over the five hundred percentage mark with three games on their schedule before Friday’s cutoff date. Triton was that team traveling to Sterling participating in a non-league game. The Knights would pick up their third straight victory by posting a 3-0 win over the Mustangs assuring them a spot in the upcoming tournament.
Sterling had started out the season with a 4-1-2 record. Those two ties were against very good soccer teams in Haddonfield and Collingswood, teams from their Colonial Conference Liberty Division. A missed opportunity in either of those games that could have gone their way would have resulted in Sterling not needing to wins down the stretch. From that point of the season, the Knights went 1-3 and they needed to end that losing streak. Leading scorer Shane McGrory along with Paul Roehrs and Chris Corcoran were able to get past a tough Jordan Lovett in goal for Triton. Dan Camburn would pick up the save for Sterling.
