With a new coach guiding the way, the Saucon Valley boys high school soccer team is getting a ton of extra, off-season work in the Lehigh Valley Summer Soccer League that takes place on Monday and Wednesday evenings at Lehigh University.
Coach Houghton’s Panthers squared off against the Nazareth Blue Eagles on Wednesday night in a battle for 1st place in Group A of the Men’s Junior Division. Both teams entered the contest with 4-0 records.
It was a very competitive game that was well-played and hard fought. The Panthers received early goals from Scott Grenestedt and Sean Cyphers. Saucon created multiple chances down the stretch but could not find the back of the net. The Panthers came very close to scoring a few times, but the Blue Eagles were able to hold on for a 4-2 victory.

With the loss to Nazareth, the Panthers dropped to 4-1 in their group. The top four teams from each group will qualify for the playoffs that are scheduled to begin on Monday, July 19.
Good Luck Panthers, the Source is with you!
