Boys Soccer: Burrell battling Indiana atop Section 1-AA

Written by Stephen Catanese on .

Defending Section 1-AA Burrell already finds itself in a familiar position this season ... in a battle atop the section rankings with Indiana.

The two sides finished the last two seasons in the first and second spots in their section, respectively. Burrell won the section title in 2013 while Indiana took it in 2012.

Right now, the Buccaneers and Indians are tied with 5-1 records. Indiana defeated Burrell in their only match this season, a 3-1 victory on Sept. 9.

Since then, Burrell has surged behind strong performances from players like Joey Cox, Corey Mazary and Andrew Stewart to rattle off four-straight section victories.

Girls Soccer: Burrell enjoying quick beginning

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

Nicholas Tolomeo profiles the Burrell girls soccer team.

"Since the WPIAL expanded to three classifications for girls soccer, Burrell has not reached the postseason.

The Bucs most recent postseason trip was in 2007 playing in Class AA, then the smallest of the two classifications.

The first three games only represent one-sixth of the entire regular season but going off the small sample size, Burrell is certainly on the right pace to end that postseason drought.

There was the season-opening win against Class AAA Penn Hills. It was the first time the Buccaneers had defeated Penn Hills under fourth-year coach Chris Harkins and they did it rather convincingly, winning, 10-0."
