BROOKVILLE — With the rain already falling last Saturday morning, the Brookville Raiders soccer team found itself in a very quick hole and never recovered in a 5-2 loss to visiting Karns City.
The Gremlins led 3-0 five minutes into the game. Dakota King wound up with a hat trick while Austin Fahlor and Brayden Christie also scored.
Brian Pangallo and Jace Miner each scored for the Raiders, who fell to 1-2 going into Wednesday’s home makeup game with Forest Area starting at 4 p.m. The two teams were set to play Monday, but wet weather forced the postponement.
Thursday, the Raiders are also at home against Punxsutawney. Saturday, they start a four-game road trip at Clearfield. Next Tuesday, they visit Forest Area in Marienville.
Lady Raiders also postponed
The Lady Raiders soccer team’s Monday trip to Punxsutawney was also moved Wednesday for a 4 p.m. kickoff.
They’ll take a 1-3 record into the game and then host Clearfield Saturday at 10 a.m. and Brockway next Monday at 4 p.m.

WEDNESDAY, Sept. 5
Lady Raiders 7,
In their home opener last week against Punxsutawney, the Lady Raiders jumped out to a 5-0 first-half lead and cruised to a lopsided win.
Madison McAninch scored three goals, two unassisted coming in the first five minutes of the game, while freshman Leila Heagy scored twice, one unassisted and the other coming on a rebound shot off a Madisyn Wolfe shot.
The other first-half goal was the offensive play of the game on a corner kick started by Sara Muders, whose boot to the net was one-timed into the goal by Hannah Peterson.
Jillian Taylor and Alayna Haight assisted on McAninch’s third goal 59 seconds into the second half. Taylor then banged home a penalty kick to complete the game’s scoring with 33:07 remaining.
Avery Gilhousen, tested very little, was the winning goalkeeper.
