By Becca Siple, social media editor

The Saegertown boys varsity soccer team has kicked its way into a fantastic season with only three losses thus far, to Warren once and Meadville twice.

And standout senior captain Peter Mattocks, dubbed the Haitian Sensation by The Meadville Tribune, has broken two records so far this season.

Mattocks was crowned the new reigning leader for most career goals scored with a whopping 81 and counting. “It was awesome. I knew I was close, and I’m glad I finally got it,” said Mattocks of the achievement. He also broke his own record for goals scored in a season from 24, to 41. When asked how it felt to break yet another record, Mattocks said, “I was proud and excited.“

As the season continues to move rapidly, the Panthers are hoping to keep the wins coming. They are getting ready to enter playoffs, and they expect to make the community proud. “I want the team to get better, dominate in playoffs, and bring home something good,” Mattocks said. The team will be in action again on Monday Oct. 26 at home against General Mclane.
