Boys Soccer: New surroundings, similar results for Greensburg Salem

Written by Brad Everett on .

Greensburg Salem won a section title last season, but because of the WPIAL realignment finds itself in a new section with only one team it competed against a season ago.

The Golden Lions are acclimating themselves to their new surroundings nicely.

Four up, four down for Greensburg Salem, which is 4-0 overall and 2-0 in Class 3A Section 1. The Golden Lions are hitting the back of the net frequently, having outscored their opponents, 34-6. They own section wins against Indiana (4-2) and Highlands (7-1) and non-section victories against Ligonier Valley (9-3) and Saltsburg (14-0).

Greensburg Salem competed in Class 2A Section 1 last season. The only team from that section to accompany the Golden Lions into the new section is Indiana. Those two split the section title last season.
