On 9/8 Fannett Metal (3-1) hosted rival McConnellsburg Spartans, which prevailed with a 2-1 victory over the Tigers. McConnellsburg scored at 33rd minute with a ball getting behind our defense. This goal woke the Tigers up and they kept working hard till the 14th minute and Jack Beaumont hit a nice shot pass the McConnellsburg goalkeeper. In the second half a McConnellsburg player happened to be left unmarked and he was there to tap the ball in the goal. The Tigers then continually put lots of pressure and shots on McConnellsburg but couldn’t get the equalizer. Goalkeeper Landon Arnold had 8 saves for the Tigers. The Tigers played hard and hope to rebound against the Cardinals of Forbes Road. Also on the soccer field on Friday evening, Friends of Fannett-Metal Athletics (FOFMA) were recognized for the donation of the lights on the field. The administration, soccer teams and coaches presented a banner showing their gratitude for the light installation. John Flannery, Franklin County Commissioner was in attendance as well to represent the Franklin County Commissioners who awarded FOFMA $65,000 through the IMPACT Grant Program that enabled FOFMA to purchase lights for the Fannett Metal School District.
