Corry’s boys soccer team looked like it might coast to an easy win over undermanned Erie East on Saturday at Sheen Field.

The Warriors, 1-13 coming to town, had just 11 players.

Corry was missing a number of starters due to injury and taking ACT tests.

The Beavers went ahead 4-1 early in the second half.

But East came to life and bang, bang, bang tied and then won the match, 5-4.

East scored with 32:27 on the second-half clock, then again 43 seconds later, cutting the lead to 4-3.

The Warriors tied it with 14:34 left in regulation and got the winning goal with 11:45 remaining.

The rally spoiled the first-half hat trick by Beaver senior David Hajec, who converted a penalty kick and scored on another direct kick.

Jamie McClelland had Corry’s other goal, on an assist from Kenny Adams, for a 4-1 lead at halftime.

East had two goals each from Timsina and Sshimirimana.

Corry drops to 5-8-2 overall and is 5-6-1 in the region. East now stands 2-12.

The Beavers host Eisenhower in the final home match today at 4 p.m. Ike has already qualified for the District 10 Class A playoffs and is 11-3 after a 5-1 win over Central Tech on Saturday.

Corry’s final game is at Maplewood on Wednesday.
