Boys Soccer: Obama, Allderdice standouts pouring in the goals

Written by Brad Everett on .

One plays for an undefeated team. The other for a team that has won only one section game. Both, however, find themselves among the WPIAL's top goal scorers at the midway point of the season.

Obama Academy junior Francis Eddy-Harvey and Allderdice's senior Tim Pugh are off to excellent starts. Eddy-Harvey had scored 10 goals in games played through Sept. 27, while Pugh had tallied eight. Harvey's total tied for 15th in the WPIAL. Bentworth's Chad Gurdish led all players with 18 goals.

Pugh, who is 6 feet 9, has Allderdice towering over the rest of Class AAA Section 4. The Dragons are 9-0 overall and 6-0 in section play. Every other team in the section has at least two losses.

Eddy-Harvey and his Obama teammates haven't had as much success. The Eagles are 5-8 overall and 1-7 in Class AA Section 5. Their only section win came against Steel Valley, a game which Eddy-Harvey finished with three goals and two assists.
